I like your idea and I like the RGB Style. But what are you going to use 4tb for. yes maybe some games but that much storage can let you own every game on steam. I don't think that you need 4tb

I recommend using all-in-one watercooling, a.k.a. AIO's.

When you do a custom loop you will have to replace the water all 1-2 years.

Don't cheap out on AIO's its not worth it, choose a new model like one from corsair since they have a lot experience and watch a review from it since this is the way you'll learn as fast as possible how to use these.
