Could I have opinions on my build. Does the mobo fit with the build?

Is anything a bottleneck in this build. I'm probably going to order all of the parts on amazon prime tonight. Thanks for any help :)

Just fyi you know that you're going with a Z170 motherboard and a locked CPU (non K)?

I only see 2 reasons why you would go for a Z170 motherboard; you want to overclock your CPU or you want to change the CPU somewhen in the future.

Otherwise it seems good.

I think that I can overclock my cpu in the future. Another guy said that he would change the old mother board so I did. He also told me to go in this thread before buying because he's not an expert on motherboards. I don't intend on overclocking anytime soon but I probably will in the future once I get aftermarket fans. For now I'll stick with the stock fans and change them in the future. Also, even if the chip isn't overclockable, the ram can be used to its full potential in this mobo compared to my older one

Then I'd get faster RAM, I'd say DDR4-3200 should be the way to go. Maybe even consider getting 16GB since the price difference isn't really high. If you want to overclock your CPU then you should get the Intel i5-6600k. It will cost you only around 70 bucks more with an aftermarket cooler. And the difference of overclocked RAM and non-overclocked isn't that huge, maybe a few fps. What is your available budget?
