Good build, although I do recommend adding an SSD to the mix.

Potential clearance issues with the finned RAM and the Hyper 212 EVO.

Other than that, looks good.

You can save $7 (usually it's more) by getting the similar Xigmatek Gaia instead of the Hyper212 EVO. It cools within 1C but is up to 6db quieter per Frostytech reviews. I use them on my systems and have no complaints.
I agree about the SSD, if you can afford it. I would recommend 120-128GB; like a Samsung 840 Pro (NOT the vanilla 840), Crucial M4, or Crucial M500.

Could you recommend me a set of good ram sticks that will be a nice fit please?

Kingston HyperX are pretty good non-finned
I use them with the 212 EVO myself
