Looks great.. I would just get the cryorig H5 ultimate which will fit your theme better and get better fans.

Maybe you like the aerocool ds (use 140mm fans which move more air at less rpms) and much quieter.

The only things I'd change is remove the case fans and get a 240mm rad instead like This

Yeah it is really expensive :/ there really is no possible way for me to get a wired connection to my room in the house so I wanted to get a really good wifi to make up for that
