Don't forget you need new RAM too, as mentioned! Outside of that, and the case, which I didn't look at, everything you are considering should work great. You will have a PC to last several years. I always say that, and it seldom seems true, but I am certain you will. I am envious of your set up I have you beat on some parts, but not on the CPU/motherboard.. not by a long shot!

As far as water cooling, I've been working with computers since I was 13 (which would be 32-ish years). I have been oddly intimidated by water cooling and just avoided that. lol That CPU does run hot though, from what I've also heard, so yeah, you want something good for that. Looks like what you picked out is a very good choice of air cooling too.
My Rig (also serves as my gaming PC): Asus Z270A Prime Mobo, i7-6700k, 32GB RAM, Samsung 960 Evo 500gb NVMe, Crucial 1TB NVMe, NVidia GTX 1070, Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, Nektar Impact LX25+ MIDI Controller Keyboard.
