What do you guys think of my first build?!

Hey everybody. I have recently finished the layout for my first gaming PC. With the help of a friend and personal research, I believe I have put together a decently powerful computer that will last me a few years. I simply want to know what you guys think. Any extra parts I should have/change? Is my cooling efficient enough for overclocking my CPU and GPU? Is my power supply good? + Any general thoughts and comments.

Looking for multiple suggestions so please feel free to keep adding on.

Any help is appreciated! :D

Also, any suggestions on a good power line adapter kit for gaming?

    I am about $100 over budget with this build but it's a GTX1080 with a massive cpu cooler.

    Yeah we could play fantasy computers all night lol. Great build. I wouldn't use a PSU that comes with a case thugh. Its the heart of a system, and if that fails and brings down the whole system with it you will regret it..
