I would go for a beefier cooler and a more reliable/efficient PSU. The cooler is fine for stock clocks, but no point going Z170 if you're not overclocking. The 212 can handle a modest overclock, but a CLC such as the Kraken/Arctic Liquid Freezer would do a better job and look cleaner in my opinion.

As for the PSU, you don't wanna skimp out on a cheaper unit. that one is fine but only up to a certain point. something like Corsair's RM650x or similar would be a smarter move
