Can an PC wizz please review my first planned custom gaming PC build, any advice would be awesome!

Hey so I've been investing in my first gaming PC which I want custom built, I set the budget at $2000. But since I've had little hands on activity with computers I was hoping someone with a more in depth understanding could check my components and if possible make suggestions on parts I can change for this PC.

I want my PC to be able to overclock as well as be able to run most high performance games with over 60+ FPS on decent settings without overheating or damaging the CPU. I'm also concerned that all my components might not fit inside the case.

My Components Include:
Details:
Processor: Intel Core i7 7700k 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor- $479

Motherboard: ASUS PRIME Z270-AR LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard- $235

Graphics Card: PNY GeForce GTX 1070 8GB XLR8 Gaming Overclocked Edition Graphic Card (VCGGTX10708XGPB-OC)- $470

Memory: Corsair Vengeance (2x8GB) 16GB DDR4 3200Mhz Black - While LED- $225.50

Storage:
Internal Hard Drive: Western Digital- Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Drive- $138
SSD: Samsung- 850 EVO- series 250GB 2.5"- $109

Case: NZXT S340 Mid Tower Case Black/Red- $109

Power Supply: Corsair RM750W 80+ Gold Modular ATX Power Supply- $185.00

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master- Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler- $43

Total: $1983.5

So if Anyone has any help please message thanks!

    Awesome build. Will perform great. The only thing I could say is are you sure you want the 212 evo? It's a good cooler but the 7700k gets hot. Maybe something like the cryorig h5 would be better.

    Yeah but that might will most likely push the budget over $2000 wouldn't it?
