Yay or nay? I have posted this a few months earlier and got some good feedback, but I have since made some changes. Wanted to run it through you guys, before I buy all the parts this coming week.

My goal is a smooth computer, 60 fps gaming, not too loud, you know the deal. Thanks!

1080p this is really, insane overkill and you'll probably be getting 100+ FPS. It'll last for years and years. Everything looks good to me!

Do you think the cooler can handle the build pretty well? Thank you for the reply!

Yes. That's pretty much the best air cooler there is. The only way you could really make it better is if you got an AIO like an X61 or a H110i v2, H115i, etc.

That CPU cooler should easily overclock for you.

Are you planning to game at 1080p or 1440p? If 1080, I would upgrade to a 144hz monitor- go for around $250- if gaming at 1440p then you should be able to run almost all games at 60fps at High-Max settings. If you are gaming at 1080p and want to run 60fps on most games you can save some money here and go with the 1060 6GB if you are willing to. Otherwise everything looks great :)

you could get a better cooler for a cheaper price http://pcpartpicker.com/product/w37wrH/corsair-cpu-cooler-h55

"Better cooler"? The Scythe Fuma is the best performing overclocking air cooler there is. Only problem is it's a bit noisy. Can you please provide us a link to which the Corsair H55 is "better" than the Scythe Fuma?

It looks great to me. You have a great HSF. A decent motherboard. Fast RAM, storage that is of great value, a good case, and a good PSU. My only suggestion would be maybe different color RAM since imo that white will clash with the red on the motherboard.
