Everything is compatible and looks good. These are a few things you might want to consider:
RAM:
Change the RAM to this:
Mushkin silverline
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It's lower profile so you know it won't be in the way of the heatsink and fan.

Case:
You can save money by going with this case if you don't have a case preference (it's full tower):
Rosewill Thor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MoBo:
The motherboard, like the case, is somewhat overpriced, you can change to this one with similar features but for $80 cheaper:
ASRock Extreme 3 z68
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Otherwise, it looks good! Good luck on your build

Thanks for the reply. How come in the picture of the Asrock Z68 at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., it shows PCI Express Slot 2.0 x 16, and not the 3.0 x 16 like in the details?

You could save even more $ by getting the Patriot Signature 2 x 4GB RAM 1600 MHz.
