What's the budget and primary use? If it's gaming ditch the H100 and get a Noctua D14. Get the low profile Ares RAM instead of the Ripjaw X.

For CPU get the 3570K, no need for the 3770 as you can't overclock it. The difference will allow you to add a good SSD to the build.

And then instead of dual 660TIs, get a single 670 or a 7970 GHz edition.

Real close to my build except for the graphics card. I would go with faster ram 1600 or better. You'll love the phantom tower, fill all your fan slots for the best cooling.

That's a sweet build there. The only thing is that anything above 1600 RAM doesn't really benefit you because on default settings the motherboard runs the RAM at the lowest speeds and timings that it can handle.
