The more you overclock you lessen the lifespan of your processor.

Only problem is that the water usually passes through a radiator type thing
which is cooled with fans, and there are models that have a fan on both sides
of the radiator unit. It might be less noisy than an air cooling setup, but my
box under load can get a bit loud--both GPU & CPU are water cooled (3 fans).
It's best to check the specs if noise level is a concern... but if you have the
luxury to put the box on the other side of the wall

I only have my processor water cooled, and it is super quiet. Sometimes I forget that my computer is already on and accidentally switch it off. xD

You got a good model :]
And there is also the pump to consider, the power supply and any other fans
the box might have. It all adds up and if noise is a concern, all the fans needs
to be considered. Might be worth spending a few extra bucks on quality fans.

I forgot a wifi card but it's plugged into the router with a cable for now.
Strange to me that premium wifi cards don't have Bluetooth functionality and you need a separate dongle, it seems natural to bundle those two.

Anyway I just wanted to make a quick note here because I think it's funny
There are four fans in the tower I bought
A fan on the power supply
A fan on the CPU
two fans on the GPU

There are eight fans in this thing, idk why that strikes me as funny

Edit: It's not loud but I would definitely turn it off before filming in the same room.

Don't use wifi, cable is better.
