Everything looks good to me

Very nice build. I'd suggest buying a good 200mm fan for the front of the HAF 912 though. It plays big dividends to cooling.

Good idea to start a new thread if you're looking to build as well. We've all got different needs and budgets after all

Edit: I'm going to assume you're the same person. In which case, it all looks good to me. Just 1 thing; if you're installing a SATA optical drive in there, you will need to pick up another SATA cable. That board only comes with 2

Great build! That HD 7970 is going to do some serious gaming!

One thing I'd suggest if you're going to go into overclocking is to get an aftermarket cooler and the Corsair H100i would be a good choice.
