Not a big fan of the motherboard or the PSU... Did you already order those parts?

Motherboard is alright, the gaming version is better.
PSU again is alright, but it uses cheap capacitors so it can be offsetting. (Antec, seasonic, XFX for the PSU)

Better, yes, worth canceling, no.
There are always better board, but they cost much more. The gaming version of the board is quality, and will run with no issues. PSU will hold its own until it needs to be upgraded.

Slightly better cooling. But all around they are the same. If there's a cancellation fee or you can't cancel it, don't worry about it.
