At this price try air cooling, switching to an i5 (maybe?), and using an hdd.

Switch to an I5 4690k, use air cooling, the stock cooler will suffice for awhile if you don't overclock. For the price you can get a PNY 240gb ssd optima (It's a little slower but its still fast enough) which will double your storage space while keeping it fast. Cut the power supply, what you have is overkill unless you plan on sli in the future. I cut it down to 1 8gb stick (I assume you will upgrade to 16gb in the future but it isn't needed right now). I didn't add a case or anything you didn't already have in the build.

Can the i5 be oc well?

Uh with liquid cooling yes, with air cooling probably not much if at all, with the stock cooler mines running fine at 3.9. The main difference between the I7 and I5 from what I understand is the hyper threading capability which really doesn't have an affect on gaming.

What is this build for? If it's gaming you don't need 16gb of ram, 8 is plenty. You also don't need hyperthreading for gaming so can swap to a 4690k. There are also cheaper mobos that do the job fine.
