Possible to build a max CDR Riven build?

I've checked the guides, and so far I've had decent results with the general: Wriggles + Merc Tread + Bloodthirster + GA ...etc build.

However, given Riven's incredibly short cooldown would it work if we go for a max CDR build that works at just as equal efficiency?

Item-wise, I'm thinking:

Kindlegem (+10% CDR)
Brutalizer (+10% CDR)
Ionian Boots (+15% CDR)

With an additional 5% CDR from Glyphs that should easily round you to 40%. Conversely, upgrading Brutalizer to a Youmuu's or Kindlegem to Shurelia's will also get Riven to 40%.

The other items will still focus on Riven's massive AD scaling, getting things like Bloodthirster and then a GA to further round out her defense or an Infinity Edge to give her more damage/defense.

The lack of Tenacity may be annoying since we're swapping Ionian Boots with Merc Tread and Riven is also losing some sustain due to the lack of Wriggle's Lantern. But if she was able to get out of laning phase relatively fine, would this route be a good alternative to the normal build?

One problem I forsee: cd would make damage more sustained, while going damage gives her burst. You need health and survivability with sustain damage. This could hurt your early game while you get both. I dont think the end game payoff is worth that early game sacrifice.
