      Post Building new PC, input needed

      Hey everyone, I'm building a new pc and would like some input as I'm looking to purchase everything within the next 2 days.

      Current list (peripherals are not included):
      Case: Deepcool Dukase V2 mid dower (black)
      Mobo: ASUS - Z170 Pro Gaming
      Power supply: Thermaltake 750W Toughpower Gold EVGA SuperNOVA G2 Gold 750w (modular)
      GPU: gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WindForce OC 6gb
      CPU: i5 6600k
      RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 16gb 2x8gb DDR4 2400MHz
      SSHD: Seagate firecuda 1TB
      SSD: SanDisk SSD plus 240gb 2.5" SATS 3
      CPU cooler: noctua NF-F12 120mm 3000rpm pwm fan (thanks Kama for that one) Coolermaster Hyper 212 (thanks Vers)

      Any input would be greatly appreciated, the things I'm not sure about is the cpu cooling and the power supply.

      Thanks,
      Maple

      EDIT: Money's come through on PayPal. Have bought the stuff above! Wish me luck putting it all together! Thanks for the input everyone, greatly appreciated.

      Everything is up to your preference and budget. You spelt my name wrong LOL.

      CPU: Are you going to overclock your 6600k?
      Case: Case is ok. Don't like the PSU shroud.
      Mobo: Is alright.
      PSU: Is ok. If was modular then cable management is 100x better as you wouldn't need to hide all the useless cables.
      Case: Have seen those around mwave just haven't taken a good look at them yet.
      Cooler: Those are fans where you put them as a cooler LOL... Maybe look into AIO water cooling. Or these bad boys.
      RAM: You don't even need ram with that kind of speed. 2133mhz is fine to run everything on max settings
      SSHD: Never ran SSHD before.
      SSD: Sandisk. Fine SSD, would rather use something like this SSD. But it should be fine regardless.

      Just my 2 cents.

      Or just a Coolermaster Hyper 212 if you are cheap: https://www.pccasegear.com/products/...12x-cpu-cooler.

      intel just announced its new processors and it wont be long until the 10xxti will be released.

      it might be worth holding off purchasing just now so you can

      a) getting some fresh off the market gear

      b) wait for prices for (now) old generation chips are dropped

      What PSU would you recommend Kama? anything you know of that's roughly the same price as that one (~$155)

      The "new" Kaby Lake intel CPUs are just rebadged Skylakes, with no performance increase and very minor added technologies, so I wouldn't bother waiting for those. But as Trigger said it might mean a drop in the price of the Skylakes (maybe).

      ^ This. Consider holding out until Skylakes become cheap following Kaby Lake release

      Thanks for the advice but I'm really not up to waiting much more than I already have, as I mentioned in my response to Triggs, I want to get everything done before the end of January.
