edit: case comes w/ 2 fans I believe, so those plus one for the CPU and the fans on the GTX 680

I think your fine and it wont overheat but drop that i7 to a 15-4670k to save some cash as games don't take advantage of hyper threading and it would be an overall waste to buy an i7. I would take some of that extra money and go with the ASRock z87 Extreme3 ATX Mobo.

And if you want you can always buy more 120mm case fans (they sell for around 10-15 bucks) in the future if you feel like there is anything overheating. :)
