A water cooler might get you better temps for overclock. Look at anything from Corsair or Cooler Master. Also are you planning to run at 1440p?

Just make sure to stay away from carpet when your building.

I'm currently using a Samsung B350 S27B350H 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor with a max of 1920 x 1080. So not going to be running 1440p on this screen, but could upgrade in future. I am not even sure I will be doing any OC but want to have the option if I feel the desire to. I also have enough PWm fans to max out fans in case using a 5.25 fan control and built in 4 fan connectors on board if needed. But as this is my very first build from scratch, not just swapping out parts, i appreciate anything you have to say.
