I wish I could upgrade from my toaster.
Intel HD 2000 in my Sandy Bridge i5 2500 + Chris' Max Frames will have to do for now. Dat 40-60 fps with sub 720p resolution life.
Stay jealous people.

Anyways, look forward to seeing updates! I always like new computer builds.

I'm thinking about actually going with an Asus Strix GTX 1080 instead of the Founders Edition, that is, of course, if the waterblocks for it are still in stock when I need them. Still haven't reached a final decision yet though... what do you guys think?

Alright, replaced the Founders Edition plus waterblock and backplate with the ZOTAC ArcticStorm, because it'a a lot cheaper, has RGB lighting, and has better stock and boost clocks as well as overclocking capability. I did consider the ASUS ROG Strix as well, but I decided against it because I decided that it would be too much work to manually add the waterblock and backplate.

Sounds good. Keep in mind the chance of getting a card thats capable of running +2100Mhz is slim.
So running any card on water with Boost 3.0 will give you higher clocks overall no matter what card you have.
Boost 3.0 Overclock the card depending on temp by itself so you might get higher clocks than they even say the boost is.
Boost Clock now only means the lowest clock it should go to basicly. I hit 2GHz when its cold enough with no OC and my Boost clock is 1860Mhz.
So the watercooling will help you keep that boost high and OC higher for sure :)

Personally im still waiting on some extra cash to buy a waterblock myself but it will be updated at some point :) And hopefully I will be able to stay stable at 2075Mhz or maybe higher.
The voltage worry me on air.
