I intend to go with this part list but still wonder about compatibility and water-cooling probability. Any suggestion and recommendation are welcome.

You could be in 290s, 290xs, and 970s at this price range. Do you really need to allocate so much of your budget into the case? Not that you need a bad case, but it isn't necessary to spend that much to have quality and water cooling capability.

Id personally recommend the NZXT S340 if you dont need the optical drive. Looks much cleaner and has usb 3 ports unlike the haf.

There's also the 240 to stick with the white theme.
