Will these parts work well together for a gaming pc? (any suggestions)

Hi, I'm new to the world of PC gaming, but i decided to build my first pc instead of paying out the arse for a pre-built. Anyway, since I'm a noob to pc building I was wondering if all these parts (and case) would work well for a fairly high end gaming rig and if not, what suggestions people had instead. My max budget including £85 for the operating system, is £1800. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Part list; -Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor

-Noctua NH-U9S 46.4 CFM CPU Cooler

-ARCTIC MX2 30g Thermal Paste

-Asus Z170-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

-Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory

-Western Digital BLACK SERIES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

-Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

-EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Superclocked Gaming ACX 3.0 Video Card

-NZXT H630 (White) ATX Full Tower Case

-Corsair 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

-TP-Link TL-WDN4800 PCI-Express x1 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter

CPU = the best of the best

CPU cooler = could be better but if you are not overclocking, it will be fine

Thermal compound = great stuff. Don't see why you need 30 grams, but whatever you need is good. I would recommend the MX-4 instead of the MX-2.

Motherboard = Good motherboard. Sturdy and should last a long time.

Memory = fast and effective

Storage = put the operating system on he SSD and everything except for important files on the HDD. Great choices.

Video card = since it is a GTX 1080, it automatically is amazing. Great choice of a GPU. The only thing better than it is the Titan X Pascal, but that's double the price.

Case = nice and good looking

Power supply = should do an excellent job powering the whole thing

Wireless network adapter = does its job

Overall, great build, especially for its price. I don't think any store bought PC would be any competition for this build. Your strong spots are your CPU and graphics card. The weak spot is the thermal paste simply because 30 grams is too much. I would recommend the MX-4 and a smaller amount.
