I would personally swap the ASUS 7970 to a Gigabyte, as the ASUS model is triple slot for no real benefit to cooling performance or silence.
Also much cheaper.

No aftermarket cooling for your overclock ready rig? I advise a Hyper 212 EVO.

Should be good.

I definitely agree there - I'm not a fan of the gigantic Asus 3-slot cooling design.

I'd also pick a different case - the Thor is gigantic and you only need it if you're working with a massive motherboard like the Gigabyte Sniper or Asrock OC Formula. For an Extreme 4 you don't need it. Get a NZXT Phantom 410 instead or look at the Corsair 500R.
