Looks good to me, really. I would suggest a different case, perhaps...Corsair are good for cable routing and you can get some good quality cases for less than you're paying for that Thermaltake one. I'd also recommend an aftermarket cooler for that CPU if you plan on overclocking in the future...something like the Hyper-212 would work well with that.

Build seems great. Nothing that would require changing.
