A dark, evil art. Forbidden, except to those bold and brazen enough to cast their souls aside in pursuit of unlimited wealth and power. A pox upon their name for a thousand generations, should their secret be found out. It is said that those who look into the eyes of an Ethereum miner see not the soul of a man, but only wailing ghouls; the damned, twisting in unholy and everlasting agony...

If you keep waiting for the next best thing, you'll never buy anything.
Money may not be able to directly buy happiness, but I’ve never seen a sad person in a Ferrari.
Don't do what you love and don't do it for the money.
Life has a tendency to just throw **** at us. You know the idiom "when **** hits the fan"? Life is a constant wave of **** hitting a perpetual fan the size of Cold War Russia. And you know what? We can deal with it; we've done it our entire lives. Just keep pushing against the nasty breeze, because behind the fan is fresh air. You might find yourself swimming, maybe even drowning, but that's why there are other people to support you, to pull you out of the ****, to resuscitate you from nearly drowning in the **** of your life. We can help one another. Keep going, and if you need a hand to reach for, reach for that hand.

You cannot cure 'The Hunger'. You can only satiate it momentarily before it overcomes you again. Yours is a path many damned souls have tread before and many more to follow. A path of broken checking accounts, empty wallets, and the discarded husks of forgotten workstation machines - ruthlessly cracked open and hollowed out for their precious innards. Their abandoned frames form the breadcrumbs we follow to your final destination: the howling madness of a room alight with LEDs and whirring OEM fans; pulsing RGB and sloshing of pumps; a madman, rocking on his heels amidst his electronic compatriots; cackling with delusion, he clicks 'Add to Cart' with pock marked and gnarled fingers, still-fresh blood from a particularly unfriendly chassis dripping onto his MOBA-ready mouse...
The complexity of implementing water cooling components from multiple different manufacturers into one indexing and sorting system is very difficult to do. Considering the plethora of componentry dimensions and designs, this feature will not be added for quite a while, if at all.
That being said, some custom loop components are available on PCPartPicker; however, they are not indexed in the main categories and are not capable of being checked for compatibility; radiators, reservoirs, video card coolers, and coolant are all available on the site.
Please note, no compatibility checking is available for these components!
M.2 is a form factor, not an interface protocol.
M.2 can use SATA III and/or PCIe X4 as its interfacing method.
NVMe SSDs like the one you suggested actually take longer to boot because the PCIe lanes for the SSD need to initialize before booting, unlike traditional SATA SSDs and HDDs.
The only individuals who may benefit from NVMe storage are those who transfer very large files over short periods of time like editors.
Keep in mind that some motherboards only support one or the other protocol or even neither in the case of Wi-Fi module only connectivity.
SATA III SSDs are recommended for 99% of users.
There are multiple memory companies on the market, but only a few true memory manufacturing companies. When researching different memory brands, you may run across companies that claim to be memory manufacturers, when they're really just module assemblers. How these companies work is that they purchase pre-manufactured parts (such as DRAM chips and printed circuit board) from true memory manufacturers, and then assemble these components to “manufacture” a module with their label on it.
True memory manufacturing involves a much higher level of technical expertise and quality control, and involves everything from selecting choice silicone to functional module testing. True memory manufacturers design, produce, and test components and modules at all stages of production. Memory modules consist of two pieces: DRAM semiconductor chips that store data, and printed circuit board (PCB), which connects the memory chips to the rest of the computer. There are only a handful of semiconductor manufacturers with the capability to produce DRAM chips, and they are Micron, Samsung, Hynix, and Toshiba.
