Get a better CPU cooler then, like the hyper 212 evo. Also, that series of power supplies is known to fail incredibly easily.

Looks good. There are cheaper Z170 motherboards if you're really hurting for budget and that would allow you to pick up a CPU cooler (since you're going to BCLK OC) and maybe slightly faster RAM. Doesn't hurt to go 2x4 over 1x8 DIMMs, either. I'm also not 100% sure that PSU is appropriate for an OC gaming build. Someone else will have to verify that.

The SSD is fine, but as someone else said, the 850 EVO would make a better drive if you have the $.
