Custom Gaming Build for HD Video Creation: Second Opinion Needed

Hi, all.

I'm working on a custom gaming rig that has enough memory, processor power, etc. to handle large video files during gameplay (I record in 1080p 60fps whenever possible.) I've been looking at the specs of parts for quite some time now and everything looks fine, but due to the fact that my vision is quite poor, I wouldn't be surprised if I missed something. If someone could let me know if the parts below are all compatible and the dimensions are fine, that would be great.

I have heard the Corsair AF140s aren't very good for cooling. Would the SP140 be any better?
