Now yea, I could get a non k CPU as I won't be overclocking, and even if I had a Z170 board, I would not have enough headroom to OC. That is one thing I might change. Anyway, give me your opinion on the build.

You'll definitely want a reference card to keep your sff PC from turning into an oven.

I have a spare Z87 motherboard, will that work if I decide to pick up a 4690k instead?

Yeah that would, and that would probably save you a lot of money, just as long as it fits

Wait **** I'm getting my chipsets mixed up. Yes, you can use that mobo and I would recommend using the $80 you save from using that instead of buying one to get a higher quality ssd

I like it! Will I be losing a significant amount of frames downgrading my CPU?

Hardly, you were wasting some money because that CPU is meant for OCing and your motherboard didn't support it, so you were wasting a little there, also airflow isn't that great, so you will get extremely high temperatures, which isn't great
