My not-quite-complete new build. Should I switch cases to the NZXT S340?

I was running a HTPC in a Silverstone GD08 built with a Haswell i7 4700k and a Radeon R9 290x.

Cooling sucked balls.

I decided to build a new Skylake pc. I call this build Cherry Pie.


My old Silverstone FT02B-WRI

Skylake i7 6700k @ stock speed

Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7

Mushkin Enhanced Reactor 2.5" 1TB MLC SSD

Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16GB DDR4 (2x8gb)

PH-TC12DX Phanteks CPU cooler

Asus Xonar Essence STX soundcard

Seasonic SS-760XP2 power Supply

Radeon R9 290x for now...

CableMod replacement cable set in RED

I want to buy a GTX 1080 Strix soon and debating on replacing the case with the NZXT S340 since there are no 5.25 bays or 3.5 in hdds.

I might add another Reactor 1TB ssd for a RAID 0 array. I also need advice on which lighting kit you would recommend.
