Those are some nice looking, quality components you're putting into your build.
Only thing I possibly question is your SSD, Corsair Force Series GT. I have the same SSD but the 128 GB version. There were alot of complains regarding this Corsair SSD model having the Sandforce 2200 controller that caused crashes.

I personally had a few crashes but they were very minimal. I am still unsure if it was a possible software issue or not but it did happen and I am leaning towards the SSD. If you're willing to live with the possiblility of having some problems, then this is the only con. Other than that, this particular SSD is very fast in terms of speed. Feels quite a bit faster than my Crucial M4.
