Gaming Build - Future improvement - Overclocking possible ?

Hi all,

It will be my first custom build so I would love some feedback from you.

  • Will my build be compatible with future improvement ( SLI GTX 970, more RAM) ?
  • And Is it a good build if I want to overclock it later ?
  • Is it ok if I use the corsair 300R case instead?

Thanks you!
