Is this build a Beast? (Good or bad)

First build

Also do I need the Internal USB hub (Cooler needs a USB header)

And is the cooler good or should I get the h100i v2? (Personally like the NZXT Kraken x52 more)

Thanks for your opinion.

Anyone have a opinion?

Change the PSU to a 550 watt. Your build is only going to draw about 275 watts.

That case has horrid airflow. I recommend something with more ventilation.

The Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 is much cheaper and performs just as well.

I recommend the newer 3tb model. That one has been noted to be unreliable.

So the cooler I have is not good?

It cools well, but the it’s pricey. The Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 is much cheaper and doesn’t sacrifice performance. You’re really paying for the looks with the Kraken.
