Hi,
Maybe swap ssd to samsung 830 series, as they are know to be reliable at ~115$
Change PSU to 550W at least 80 plus bronze.
Lian li cases are bad, choose nzxt or cooler master or azza

Alright, awesome. Ill check out that SSD, but the PSU is 80+gold. Why not keep that?

Also are there any bottlenecks in this system or is it well-rounded?
