  1. Drop Arctic silver. It can burn on your chip damaging it. I've seen a GPU killed by it. CPU coolers come with their own thermal compound pre-applied anyways.
  2. You could get a better liquid cooler for allowing higher overclocking.
  3. Are you going to overclock?!
  4. You could get faster RAM for your overclocking build.
  5. I wouldn't buy an optical drive. These days everything is available online and you can install your OS from a USB stick.
  6. I'm not sure what you plan to do with those 4 140 mm fans. The front, top and rear vents have been populated in your case. Only the bottom is left empty but it supports only 2 x 120 mm fans. Read the specification. You can use 2 x 140 mm fans to enhance the radiator with a push-pull fan configuration, but 2 fans are still unnecessary. Or probably you want to have 2 x 120 mm on the bottom instead.

Please see the changes below:
