Talking My $4000 Build (What do you think?)

Hey guys, I'm going for my first build. I know I shouldn't, but I'm going for liquid cooling even though this is my first. Anyway, here's a list of all the main components. Any feed back about compatibility or anything else would be Greatly appreciated! Btw, I'm going to be using it for video editing and gaming, and some of the parts are overkill, I know, but I choose them for forward compatibility if I need to change/upgrade.

CPU---Core™ i7-3930K Processor, 3.20GHz, 12MB Cache, 6 core
RAM---Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3 1600MHz CL10 Dual Channel Kit (2 x 8GB)
Boot Drives (In RAID 0)---Crucial M4 2.5in SATA III Solid State Drive, 64GB
Main Storage---Western Digital 1TB Caviar Black 7200rpm SATA III w/ 64MB Cache
Backup Storage---Western Digital 2TB Caviar Green 5400rpm SATA II w/ 64MB Cache
Disk Drive---BH12 Super Multi Blue 12x Internal SATA Blu-ray Disc Writer, Black w/ Lightscribe
Mobo---ASUS Sabertooth X79
PSU---OCZ ZX Series 1250W Modular Power Supply
GPU---EVGA GeForce GTX 680 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-E
Sound Card---ASUS Xonar DS 7.1 PCI Sound Card
HID---Corsair Vengeance K90 Performance MMO, ThermalTake Black Gaming Mouse 4000dpi
Case---NZXT Switch 810 Hybrid Full Tower Case, White
OS---Windows 7 Ultimate (Will probably get win 8 when it comes out)

I'm going to put an EK Water Block on the CPU and 680, with a triple rad and dual 5.25" Bay Res.
What do you think?

Very nice. Must be very quick with RAID 0 SSDs!

What? SSDs in RAID 0 but no SLI? Go big or go home!

I'd never go for a build like this simply because, in 3 or 4 years, you'll get the same speeds for probably a quarter of that cost.

However, it is a nice build

You read my mind lol.

I don't understand, are people that impatient that they need RAID0 SSD for boot lol. My 7 year old 520gig 7200rpm Maxtor boots up win7 in just about a minute. I think the RAID0 SSD for boot was a bit overkill. If it's anything i'd be using RAID0 SSD's for would be a gaming drive.

I would have gotten SLi done before doubling the ssd's. Hands down.

*edit*
Good build though, non the less.
