Very nice hardware list.
I have my "Daily Driver" ITX pc housed in the same Silverstone SG05-450 and it's a great little case. The main difference is I didn't go for stock cooling. I use a Corsair H60 closed loop water cooler, in push pull, instead and am very happy with it.

Unfortunately, since the system has a Gigabyte 550Ti video card, I was forced to mount the radiator in such a manner where it blocks the optical drive slot so a simple solution was using an external optical drive.
The 450W power supply is enough for that setup and is fairly quiet as well and powers my overclocked i5-760 in that box very well.

All in all I like the component choices but would reconsider the stock cooling option only. Of course if you are not going to overclock then you will get by with it.
