I just tried that out. Will let you know in a week or so (if I remember) how it turns out.
Logitech G502 and Corsair K70 RGB MK.2
Check out the r/watercooling Reddit community if you want to get into water-cooling. You will learn a lot by just watching what others post.
I'll have to check temps at another time. The motherboard fan only kicks on when the temps get too high. I have actually never noticed it even on.
They can be noisy. Not as bad as previous generations, but if you have it pointing right at you, you will hear it.
My suggestion is if you don't wear headphones while gaming, then consider a non-blower style. If you wear headphones, you won't hear it, unless your head is right next to the exhaust.
Late night type-o. Was considering the 3700X. Obviously the 2700X is almost worthless with the performance improvements of Zen2

1x 4-pin CPU fan connector
1x 4-pin water-pump connector
4x 4-pin system fan connectors

600W PSU should be sufficient, even for full load. Normally you'll run at much lower power draw, the maximum wattage is for when the system is running under full load.
This is a great tool to help you out.
