Just need an opinion, but if there is any complaints or something's wrong, please tell me.

Unless you really want that case for some reason, there are much easier ones to work with. Also, is there a particular reason for 3 240GB drivers?

This is what I'd suggest

I really like the case, I'm willing to risk the price and the uneasy installation for the ascetics. And the reason I have 3 ssds is because I don't plan upgrading in the future to new ssds, and the ssds I chose are fast, cheap, and have a decent amount of storage. The m.2 drive is for the speed and reliability if you're asking for that too.

But why 3? It will make file transfers annoying and increase risk of failure. I have used that case and, for me, the aesthetics are not worth the horrible design (too big, bad cable management, bad cooling, and several other things).

That case is just painful and isn't worth it for the look IMO

And you are better off with a single larger drive as it is cheaper and will allow future upgrades more easily when you do decide that 1TB isn't enough really

Bad case, cooler, and why 3 drives?

If you want to go mini itx, you can do that. However, that is a decent build, but I'm not a fan of the motherboard.

Do you know how I can make it better

Sure, do you mind if I answer you in 8 hours? I need to sleep

I'm fine with that, go to sleep

Don't go with the EVGA cards currently, as they have no VRM cooling, if you are willing to wait a month or so for new cards which do have the VRMs cooled, then go for that card, otherwise, look at the Zotac cards

Why not a single larger SSD? as the 1TB version is about the same price as the 2 500GB ones

It bothers me, I like things symmetrical

looks pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of the case you chose, but its all down to preference. I'm assuming that you are using the SSD's in a raid array? if not just get a 1tb SSD for the same price. And i might go for a 750w power supply due to the 6700k and 1080. especially if you're overclocking either or both.

That build even when overclocked to the max will not exceed 450W power draw and with 750W, you could run 3 way SLI (if there was ever support for that) overclocked

So should I keep the 650 watt supply l or not?

Go for a 550W EVGA G2 or Corsair RMx and that will be plenty
