CPU good. If I recall correctly, that CPU cooler isn't much better than a 212 EVO air cooler. Have you considered an H100i? I, personally, am not a fan of of MSI motherboards. They've had quality issues in recent years. Yours may be fine, but I always recommend Asus; they're all excellent. Good RAM. SSD is excellent. Although, a Samsung 840 EVO is considerably cheaper and performs just as well. Not familiar with the Red Series WD HDDs. I have just been using Blues. I love the Corsair cases, including the 650D. Awesome choice. PSU is good, though I prefer Seasonic myself. I won't comment on the OS, other than to say I can't stand any version of 8. You need a video card. For a high end system like you have, I'd recommend a GTX 770/780. Radeon cards are great as well, I just am more experienced with Nvidia.
