First ever gaming PC Build

Hey to the great Tom's Hardware community!
So basically, I am building my first ever gaming PC and have put together a list of components after doing some research and am looking for you to tell me of there is any room for improvement and if there are components of the somewhat same value but with greater performance!
Since my Case has a glass Panel,which is intentional, I actually am looking to have nice esthetics, which I will be receiving by painting the covers of the components with plastidip. (You may be the coolest person alive and actually have the time to find me a rig with the same color scheme, but I actually want a violet/ultraviolet color scheme, so please don't go that far, since you won't be finding many parts in that range). I am going to be overclocking my CPU, but is the cooler good enough for that? Are the Standart case fans good enough for the rest of the components?

Here's a list of my components:

  1. An aftermarket cooler and Z170 motherboard is not needed for an i7 6700. Get a cheaper B150 mobo or get the i7 6700k instead. 2x 1TB drives will cost substantially more than a 2TB one. You can probably do with a cheaper power supply like the EVGA SuperNova G2 650W. The ram is overkill, 16GB 2400Mhz is enough, save the money and get a GTX 1080 instead.


    EDIT: Sorry i hadnt seen the K near you processor before, the cooler and motherboard are fine.
  2. I changed the RAM to Kingston Fury DDR4 2666 16GB (2x8GB) . Better that way?
    I kinda want to keep the 750W since I might upgrade the PC in the future. A second GPU might appear and a liquid cooling system might be integrated.
