The motherboard and the CPU seem fine, with it being a thermaltake gaming tower I'd really expect it to easy have all the screws in combonation with your motherbored as thermaltake pretty much have a hugh motherbored range

The rest seems fine..

no problem, to help in the future, the main thing is the socket size.. when you buy a motherbored on the spec part it will tell you what CPU socket size it is.. which then you have to find a CPU that has that socket size specific to the MoBo, am I correct in saying you already knew this lol

It plainly states in the motherboard information that it's a z68 chipset, which is only a 1155 motherboard chipset.
