DISCLAIMER: I'm not a gamer nor planning to be one - besides Starcraft II.

I'm mostly worried about sound&stability.

I just ordered this setup, was wondering what you guys think about it?

Corsair CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10 16 GB DDR3 CL10 1600 Mhz (8+8)
Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770 / 3.40 GHz 4 cores LGA 1155 8 MB Cache
be quiet! Dark Rock Advanced C1
Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H
be quiet! Pure Power L8 ATX 430W modular certification 80 Plus Bronze SilentWings 120mm
Gigabyte N65TOC-1GI Nvidia Geforce GTX650 Ti 1024Mo 925Mhz PCI-Express 16x
Fractal DEFINE R3

Particularly worried whether the Vengeance RAM and the CPU Cooler will play nice although I'm thinking if there are 3-4 slots I can place'em further away?

Ok, if you are doing that kind of work on it you want all your ramslots filled,
more ram means better processing in your work applications so grab another two 8Gb sticks,
The cooler looks to have good clearance so hitting ram won't be an issue,
Even the Vengeance ram should be fine,
best thing would be to fit the first two sticks and check clearance, then all being well, order the other two sticks
You will also want to get two matched fans on the cooler, they will cool better and slower/quieter than one fan running flat out

16 GB DDR3 1600 MHz looks really good to me, mean enough.

SAMSUNG SSD 830 128GB is an excellent driver, I have one of these myself in my system, but if you are about to use it as a workstation, then you may want to get an appropriate SSD.
