First, a 1080 Ti can and will chew 300W each. That’s 1200W already, not including your CPU, fans, and other peripherals. 1500W probably isn’t enough.

As far as liquid cooling, it will always keep your cards cooler, but you need a spot to mount all the coolers (unless you’re making a custom loop) and you need to make sure the memory stays cool. Some water coolers on hybrid kits don’t cover it and the fan often blows in regards to GPU temps, not RAM temps so they can overheat easily.

The CPU is quite outdated and cannot be recommended for a new system. If its already existing -> fine. Same with the mobo. The SSD does not matter and is fine.

The PSU is a bit too weak as mentioned above. The Enermax Platimax with 1700W would be a good choice.

Note that there is a new series of NVidia GPUs on the roll. The proclaimed GTX1180 should be at par withe current 1080Ti.

A simple 6-core should do fine.

Since you're planning to spend some money: With a Gigabyte Aorus GA-Z270X-Gaming 9, ASRock Z270 SuperCarrier or EVGA Z170 Classified 4-Way supporting min. 8x-PCIE on every slot you're also on the safe side. And they should cost less than that Asus X99E WS anyway.
