Ordering Parts Tomorrow, I would like some opinions

Hey PCPartPicker people! First I would like to thank you for clicking on this. Anyways, for months I have been itching to build a PC, and the time has finally come. I would like to you what you think about this. I have spent dozens of hours slaving over looking at reviews and learning all about this stuff.

Things to note: I got the SSD and case for Christmas. The HDD was in an old computer. I will be heading to Microcenter this week, which is why there was an override on the RAM, and a custom price on the cooler and OS.

I welcome constructive criticism, and Merry Christmas!

Edit: I changed the CPU cooler out for 3 more fans.

Get the Cooler master hyper 212 evo, or if you can, get the Corsair h55 or a better variant. they will cool that monstrosity of a cpu that you have. otherwise very nice build.

Thanks for the reply! The only reason I went with the NZXT cooler is because I have the NZXT case already, and I'm not planning on doing a huge overclock, probably nothing at all actually. I just want something that's maybe a little quieter and will move some air around better than the stock one.

Actually, do you think it would be better to skip the cooler and get 2 more case fans? I only have 1 right now and was thinking that if I get two more it will cool everything down, not just the CPU.
