All is good but you don't need the thermal compound. Cooler Master supplies their own.

Change the PSU. Some EVGA units are good quality. That one is only average at best. Change to an XFX, Corsair (not cx), Seasonic, Antec unit.

You are amazing. Do you know how many people tell you change this and that until the build is completely different. You gave the exact info I needed. Kudos.
