Hi,
I'm 13 years old and this is my first computer build, so you can understand how much of an adventure this is for me. :D 
Can you tell me if my computer parts are compatible.
Basically I need someone to tell me everything that could be a problem with my build. I'm sorry if I'm asking to much. Also if you play starcraft 2 can you tell me if this computer can play it on best graphics.

That's a cool case.

32GB of RAM is massive overkill for gaming. You only really need 8GB. This build is pretty imbalanced for gaming.

I am also assuming you are not overclocking. Also I'm guessing you don't need Windows.

Try this:

You can get a SSD too, but I'll leave that to your discretion. This is much more balanced.

The CPU is overkill for gaming. Your video card was too weak for gaming. This gives you a powerful CPU and a top-of-the-line video card.

And probably the final thing can I use the other heat sink fan instead of the one that comes with the cpu or is that a bad idea ?

You aren't overclocking, so its not a big deal to need a bigger fan.

The motherboard is great. Having more RAM for gaming is nice, but more than 8GB and its just a lost cause.

I don't think EVGA makes any cheap motherboards right now.
