Thinking of a build along those lines, maybe CPU fan too much ?

Looks good but i would make a few small changes.

Sythe fuma is a similar twin fin stack cooler design but $25 cheaper, very well reviewed iirc.

Asus z170 pro gaming is a step up over their 'a' board as per the old techreport build guide, a little cheaper too atm.

EVGA nex/g1 psus are not the highly rated model, you want the g2 instead (different manufacturer).

EVGA have also had an overhearing issue on their 10xx cards, there's a bios fix out now but I'd still think about changing it tbh.

Thanks for the pointers, I changed the case along with the fan ( scythe fuma ) since it is cheaper and has good reviews. Otherwise here's my updated part list : http://pcpartpicker.com/list/NhDBTH

Galaxy sells white gpus on their website if you want to get rid of that red one.
