And for the cooler: is the stock cooler loud?

I would rather not use a GPU, since he does nothing that requires that kind of power. Integrated graphics is fine. Also, wouldn't an NVMe SSD improve the general experience of navigating an OS?

Possibility isn't the biggest issue here. A xeon is for workstations or servers. A gaming pc will not gain much from a xeon. It would perform better with a standard processor

The problem with that is that the NAS will be in a place where the drive can be hit, and it could be damaged easily, sticking out 24-7. Any other alternatives?

Because you chose an unlocked cpu with a locked motherboard. If you want that motherboard, just get a 6700, otherwise, you need a z-series motherboard, and z170 is top of the line

The 6850 is a tiny increase in performance, for quite a bit of extra money, so I wouldn't do that if i were you. The 6800k is better at encoding, but the 6700k is still good, and better for gaming.

I'd recommend using the full version of windows, since you don't have an optical drive, and oem versions come in disks. Also, you gets support from microsoft, and can install it on more than one PC. Also, you're wasting your money on a 750 watt power supply. You will NEVER need that much, so don't do it. You don't need a 6700k, just get a 6600k and overclock that. With the saved money, you can get rid of both the 950 pro, and the hdd, and get a 1tb ssd.
