PC upgardes

So this is my first forum post in my life so don't hate me.

I am looking at Upgrading my computer I built early this year it is used for gaming, school work and light content creation. I am pleased with and does everything I need it to do but there are things I noticed that I would like to change/ add.

My Current build consists of:


Cryorig R1 ultimate

Gigabyte GA-Z270X-Gaming K5 moatherboard

Kingston Fury 16 GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2133

Intel 600p 256 m.2 SSD

4TB hard drive

Asus GTX 1070 Stix OC

Phanteks Enthoo pro m

corsair RM550x Power supply


I did my research before building (thx LTT and other tech channels) and I don't want to change anything to expensive like the mobo and CPU etc. But I would like to add to it or change some things, so I am planing on upgrading it with:

more 16GB of Kingston 16GB(2x8) DDR4 2133

Samsung 850 EVO 500GB (for my games as my current SSD got filled up fast full of games)

another 4TB hard drive

Phanteks Enthoo evolve TG (I love the lay out of the Enthoo Pro m but there are other things i don't like like the dust filters which suck)

and 4 Corsair ML 140 pro fans


Just wondering if this upgrades are worth it, if so are there cheaper alternatives and keep in mind I am in Australia so prices are different. 

(sorry if my spelling sucks, I can't spell to save my life)

Welcome to the forum :)

why the ml140s specifically?

also, storage upgrades are completely up to you, go crazy. For the case, the enthoo evolv is a great case, if you want to get it it's a good decision.
