I would recommend going for the Phantom 240 over the 410 as the front intake is less covered and they can provide about the same space for building your PC.

I would suggest bumping up the motherboard to the better Asus Z170-A and the RAM to some DDR4-2666 modules instead which is the sweetspot for RAM in gaming.

The rest looks fine to me.

Its not bad though so no worries just that I find it cover a good portion of the front grill for the fan's intake.

what are you gaming at res wise. you could save about 100$ getting the 6600k instead. even then possibly over kill.

Even so, the i5 6600k is a great option for this price point. Might be better to go with than and a 1070 instead.

Fine build.

An i5 would have been sufficient, but there is nothing wrong with more.
