Looks pretty good, just a couple of things I would change, but nothing major. The case you've chosen has really good airflow, so water cooling may be overkill (that unit does look cool, though). It looks like everything is geared towards high performance except for the HDD. The green edition is the power-saving edition. If you want high performance you're better off with the black edition. But even if you left the build as is, it's going to be a nice rig. Good luck on the assembly...
