First build i did 100% start to finish.

I am worried about possible bottle neck but i am not sure; i learned a few things after that would have changed some parts.

I would greatly appreciate any tips or constructive criticism! Thanks!

The entire build actual cost was $1,425.18.

I don't understand why you went with an i5-6600K because this motherboard can not overclock unlocked processors. I believe the better choose would of been the i7-6700 since it has hyper threading and the 6700 has a smart boost from 3.4 GHz to 4.0 GHz. But the H100 v2 CPU cooler is a great choose for this build to keep your CPU cool and it looks better than the stock CPU cooler. For your memory though this board can support up to 64 GB of 2133 DDR4 which would help with "future proofing". Also I would of went with one of the higher end NVIDIA cards should as the GTX 970 up to the GTX 1080, depending on when this was built. And lastly you could of saved some money on choosing a lower wattage power supply such as a 550 or 650 watts instead.
