Solid build.

FYI, I got that ram and it POSTed fine with my Asus board in case you're worried. Had to tweak the settings manually in BIOS after it booted up though.

Solid build as stated but you can cut some costs with a few things. Mainly the ram and PSU as there are better for your build's specs.

Still you could buy that right now no problem.

700W is kind of overkill. Otherwise it all looks great.
