$3500+ Build - Compatability Issues Showing Up - Discussion necessary?

Hello all! Below is my build that I've been working on for quite a few months now. Thanks to many helpful members on these forums I was able to optimize the SH%T (excuse the French =P ) out of it. I call it "The Engine" and I intend for it to kick some A$& when I purchase it in January after the release of the 1080Ti (the 1080 there now is a place holder). I'm pretty set in stone with the parts but if anyone reviewing the build sees a major problem or a major upgrade that I could do, please share =)

With that said I am getting two odd compatibility errors from PCPartPicker. They are:

(1) The Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5 ATX Mid Tower Case supports video cards up to 412mm long, but video cards over 296mm may block drive bays. Since the Asus GeForce GTX 1080 8GB STRIX Video Card is 298mm long, some drive bays may not be usable.

Here I am not very worried as I will not need extra drive bays but does anyone feel I should worry? I do intend to get the MasterCase Maker 5 or perhaps the newer MasterCase 5t (http://www.coolermaster.com/case/mid-tower/mastercase-maker-5t/)

(2) The motherboard M.2 slot #0 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6Gb/s port is disabled.

This is a subject I read up a bit about and I am aware that it appears I should be A-Okay but I'm not totally understanding the lingo being thrown around in relation to this error. I don't necessarily want to change my Mobo and I definitely am getting the Samsung 960 Pro. Question is: If I don't change my mobo will there be some sort of catastrophic "OH MY GOD I can't make my PC work now!" When building it, or will I just have to use two SATA 6.0 ports? If I do use two SATA 6.0 ports is that really a big deal or am I good?
