I really want to make my first build a great and good investment. I'm trying to keep the budget below $1500. I already have a Gtx 1080 but I included it for compatibility reasons. I want to stream and play games at 144 fps. So I need it to be powerful enough to do both. If you have the time, take a look at the build and give me any advice on it such as better parts. Links are below! TThank you!

cooler too weak for any overclocking
psu is poor quality
ram speed too slow, 3200 is better
If gaming is major usage, I will go for I5-8600k instead and spend on a gsync 1440p 144hz monitor to go with GTX 1080

Hey! Thanks for the reply and advice. Ive decided to stick with the 8700 for streaming purposes (because thats mainly why im building a new pc) and ive took your advice on changing the PSU! Ive decided to go with Corsair - RMx 750W 80+ Gold. Ive looked at reviews and it seems to be a pretty solid choice while keeping the noise down. Unfortunately, upgrading my ramsticks to 3200 isnt in my price range.... :/ and the ones i already have are rgb :D. So it will have to do for now. Thanks for your advice and time, if you have any further suggestions to the adjustments ive made, please reply :D
