Looking for any and all input. I am completely new to pc building so it's all kind of a maze right now. To be used for gaming, streaming, and light editing.

Looks like a good build. if you are going to try it yourself make sure to watch some YouTube videos and follow step by step. Its just like putting Legos together. If anything comes up you can always bring it in to your nearest micro center.
Yeah, I've been watching tons of videos. I think building I feel pretty confident. Actually starting, and setting it up I am a little concerned with. Just gonna keep picking up pointers as I go.
The Corsair AIO cooler comes with pre-applied thermal paste so there's no need for the little tube listed separately.
That case supports a 280mm radiator only in the front, which will function, but consider there are other cases such as the Corsair 5000D AirFlow that will fit a 280mm in the top, which is superior.
This is high end stuff; I assume you have a generous budget?
I would agree on top mounting as well. Here is a search on our website for cases that would support a 280mm top mount: https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?Ntk=all&sortby=match&N=4294964318+4294808119&myStore=true
looks like you're on the right track for sure. Check the price difference between the 5400 and 7200 Seagate HDD's...you might be happier with slightly faster HDD for minimal cost.
It's a pretty balanced build, but yeah to agree with TopherX, a 7200 RPM HDD would be significantly faster for not much cost.
TopherX and TAPEThan, I will definitely do that. Ian, I am now leaning toward the corsair 5000D. Its a little more than I wanted to spend on a case, but it seems to have very good cooling, and looks good as well.
That case would work great!
I have a 5000D Airflow and it is very excellent but I also have a custom water cooling loop. Some ppl with just AIO or air coolers complain the 5000D is large enough that it looks empty. You might consider the 4000D. Do you live near a MC? They will have both models on display probably, so you can compare. It is super hard to pick a case only by pictures online. Its the one PC part that you really ought to see in person to decide.
I am actually considering possibly doing a custom water cooling loop. Gonna depend if my kind wants to build it with me. I'm a couple hours away from micro center. That's why I'm trying to have it all planned out before I have to go. Make it one easy trip.
