My first build any problems?

I would get a 2X8gb set of ram, rather than 4X4, so you can add more later if you need to.

The case you picked has only 155mm space for CPU cooler, CM hyper 212 evo is 159mm. Change the case or pick lower CPU cooler.

If the build is for gaming than it's kinda overkill including the psu, mobo and ram.

I'd rather pick a xeon 1231v3 or i5-4590, Asrock pro4 H97, xfx 550, 8gb 1600mhz CL9 ram, no need for extra cooling or fans.

Thank you but I run super CPU intensive games like DAYZ and far cry4

DAYZ isn't intensive. Far cry 4 is a bit more intensive but i5-4590 and xeon 1231v3 can handle it no problem. Like i said with a top rang CPU like i5-4590 which is on the top rang of i5's and Xeon 1231 which nothing more than i7-4770 without iGP will have no problem running it and i7-4790k wont run it any better you will see maybe a 5-10fps difference is that worth 100$ more for cpu? i think not. GPU is more important here by the time you save 100$ on CPU you could probobly get GTX 980.
