Hi there pretty nice build you have going there but there are a few suggestions i have your case doesn't have good cable management options it's also made very cheap i suggest you change it also i would change the i5-2500k to i5-3570k and i would recommend you change your cpu cooler to this CPU Cooler:Thermaltake CLP0564 Frio Dual 120mm Universal CPU Cooler - LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA775, LGA2011, AM3, AM2+, AM2.

other than that your build looks solid to me.
