Looks great, very powerful build, but like Vortex says its begging to be watercooled!

Should really consider an alternative fan for the TRUE. The Noctua S12s have horrible pressure so I doubt much air is making it through the heatsink.

Probably be a good idea to add some intake fans too.

Otherwise nice build
