First Time Builder - Need Help! (Gaming PC)

http://pcpartpicker.com/list/w2LdxY Hey guys, I'm looking to build my first custom PC (survived gaming on a laptop for the last 5 years....). I'm looking to build a decent gaming rig in the $1200 price range that is SLI capable for future upgrades - when the price falls on the 1070s in a few years I'd like to be able to throw in a second. I'm new to the custom PC world, but would like to try my hand at a moderate overclock (i5 6600k up to ~4.0GHz). I'd also like to keep the build as quiet as possible, as the wife hates the sounds my current comp makes. I'm open to case suggestions (currently debating Fractal R5, be quiet! 600 and corsair carbide mid towers) and would appreciate any thoughts regarding cable management, layout, noise levels, etc.

Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor

be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 67.8 CFM Fluid Dynamic Bearing CPU Cooler

MSI Z170A KRAIT GAMING 3X ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory

A-Data Ultimate SU800 512GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

Seagate Barracuda ES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

Zotac GeForce GTX 1070 8GB AMP! Edition Video Card

be quiet! SILENT BASE 600 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case

Corsair RM 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

I think that that ram is a little overpriced for the speed

I could have sworn this was a 3 TB when I picked it. My mistake.
