As for water cooling it's pointless for that CPU and there is the risk of it leaking and destroying the system.

Thank you so much for the build! Is windows 10 difficult to download?

Your welcome. Downloading/installing Windows 10 is fairly easy, you just need to download the Windows 10 tool to a computer, run the tool program and use a 8gb+ USB flash drive as the installation location for that software. Once it's completed and the new system is built then you can use that flash drive to install Windows 10.
