I would recommend getting an aftermarket CPU cooler like the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO. And also see if you can exchange your GPU for a full size heatsink one.

There is no need for an aftermarket cpu cooler on a locked Intel CPU. The cooler that comes with this cpu is great and will do fine.

This build looks great!

I see you got a smaller 970 GTX. This GPU is fine and will work for your build but it is going to be a bit hotter and a bit louder than if you were to get a full sized 970 GTX. Your case can handle a full size 970 GTX or R9 390. The trade off is that you will get a quieter computer that runs colder but it will cost a bit more and you will have to remove your upper drive housing leaving you with only 3 Storage drive slots.

Any of these RAM sets have better specs then your currently selected RAM and are cheaper.

Otherwise this build looks great! Certainly a powerful machine.

Yeah I thought I was going to have space issues but if you look at the pic I posted above there was quite a bit of room left over.

Probably because hes doing a microATX case and wants extra drive space.

I didn't think it would fit but now that it's together I think there is actually room for a full sized card.
