DDR4 - 3200 isn't really necessary for gaming, but looking at the 3000 mhz, it's only a $15 difference, so forget what I said. It's a good deal.

Uh... what? Most people generally recommend 3200 around here regardless of the use. The faster the RAM the better it is for overclocking.

That build looks pretty good. I would lose the thermal paste since the Kraken comes with it pre-applied and you don't need any extra.
