  1. You don't need the extra case fan.

    I'd switch out your SSD with this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147163

    And then get the 3570K - you will lose functionality of the Z77 and GTX 670 with the 2500K.

    Otherwise everything else looks good.
  2. ^+1 You get PCIe 3.0 adavantage's
  3. i at first thought you were going to spend a dollar on the rig

    assuming that you wont do SLI in the future
  4. I would switch out the 2500k for the 3570k like g-unit said and also get the newer CM Hyper 212 Evo instead of the 212 Plus, better cooling :D. Everything else looks good!

    Hyper 212 Evo
