I see no issues.
Else you can check more detailed list about memory QVL here:

All looks fine for me too.
As for PSU, please make sure to get a good quality one, else you might regret buying this build if you get a cheap PSU.

I have tried Window 10 for several weeks and I think windows 8.1 is fare more stable  everything is working  flawless. 
Windows 10 looks too be working fine but then suddenly BSOD while gaming  it is jut not as stable as window 8.1 .

I'm going to go with the Intel Core i5 6600K insead for the overclocking capabilities
PSU going with Corsair HX850i 850W 80 Plus Platinum Power Supply

I've got Win7 Pro (have to rip it out of a pc) but thort Win10 Pro upgrade would  be ok as long as there's know issues with MSI and Win10

Good PSU.
As for OS, it is up to you. Next Battlefield release will require DX12 if you would like to play on Max settings. And next release after this one, DX12 will be minimum. And DX12 is only available on Win10...
