Excellent build. Very good choice. But, IMO, what I WOULD do is,

Change that liquid cooler for a air cooler, something slightly higher than a hyper 212 maybe.
The asus motherboard is slightly overkill, I would get asus mainstream boards, they all do the same thing.
Instead of getting a fan, get a case that comes with fans, might I suggest corsair.
And if possible, get a slightly higher end gpu with the money you saved, like a 7950

Motherboard is overkill and has useless features(armor). ASRock boards are very nice lately, they have cheaper price tags as well but packs more features.

+1 on dropping the H60, though I see no reason to go over a Hyper 212 EVO unless you're doing unnecessary overclocks.

Get low profile RAM.

Antec Eleven Hundred was a great casing(and probably still is), but IMO it's already too old and outdated. If you're not particularly attached to the model, I suggest looking for others.
