That'll work. I think I'd rather save some cash and get a Samsung 980 500GB at Storage Set 1 for a compact "C" drive of a manageable size. A 1TB 980 at Storage set 2, and that monster drive at storage set 3.

Be advised there have been a few reports from recent Bolt purchasers that temps are running up in the 80C range. For that reason, I will not endorse the choice of that case. It appears to be the higher power draws/temps of the latest parts, and you have stuffed your case full of those.

Put those parts in a Lumos or Velox, get a full-size board, and you have a winner IMHO.
