I'd say an upgrade on the cooler for sure.

Also just make sure either the MOBO has a built-in wireless or has something to remedy that.

Reply with build list:
I put your build with a few changes suggested by users above me and better parts within the same category in a pcpartpicker list as @Monster402 suggested.

Total: $3381.42

The image shown below is a comparability log that pcpartpicker outputs telling of possible complications. It says that since I chose you an m.2 drive over a SATA based SSD that if you had a hard drive or another SSD some of your SATA ports would be turned off, which isn't an issue since you only have one drive being your SSD. The other thing is that your graphics card could block drive bays, but since you don't have any drives I assume you will be removing those anyways so again it doesn't matter. I also went ahead and switched out your cooler with a much better cooler and I checked ahead of time and it does fit in your case.

TL;DR: I switched your CPU cooler, changed your SATA based SSD to an m.2 SSD, and picked a better power supply for less money and included it all in a part list listed above. Cheers.
