I made some recent changes to the parts I'm planning to buying for my gaming rig. Requesting some opinions on the parts listed. I'm going to use this rig for gaming. All thoughts are appreciated.

Alright, a couple questions.

Is gaming your only purpose of the build? If it is, you're not going to need an i7. An i5 4690k will do just fine. If you really have your heart set on an i7, spend $20 more and get the i7 4790k instead of the 4770k.

Do you plan on overclocking? If not don't get the H100i. Coolermaster 212 Evo will keep your CPU nice and cool for a lot less.

You don't need 16GB of RAM. You just don't. Go down to 8GB.

Everything else looks good.

I do plan on gaming most of the time, doing some video editing and over clocking.

Well then ignore the first two points except for the last part of the first one, go for the 4790k instead; definitely.

Also if you're doing light overclocking the Evo will be fine.
