Depending on what you mean by "rookie" I wouldn't recommend starting with a hardline liquid cooled build.

 

If you don't have them you'll also need peripherals. 

Ive done regular tubing for water cooling before, and will be having a friend help with hardline tubing that has used it before.

The reservoir already has a pump on it, and I plan on only water-cooling the CPU. What radiators would you prefer?

I would suggest a better and quieter psu, EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2 1000W.

 

Slightly better performing memory, Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400  or Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400.

 

For system and main storage consider a 4-lane M.2 ssd like Samsung 950 PRO 512GB M.2-2280, up to 32Gb/sec. Budget should also allow for a 1TB ssd.

 

I7-6700K is the only logical cpu for the build. Wait a day or two, there should be stock.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

Are you really sure you need a kingpin card? Because unless you are planning on doing some overclocking if the card is watercooled (which it isn't), you are basically wasting money due to not harnessing its true purpose - extreme OC potential.
