looks like a sick build but i think you are overpaying for that psu.
I suggest going with a different ssd because the new v300's are using cheaper nand that's slower than most other ssds.

can you tell me where you are getting the sleeved kits from because I was thinking of getting one for my build.

Through Corsair for Corsair and most seasonic PSUs since seasonic makes their psus.
