Default New $2500 Work/Gaming PC build (already built)

Case: CoolerMaster HAF 932 Advanced
MoBo: Asus X99-A
CPU: Intel i7-5820K 6-core @ 3.3Ghz
Fan: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO
RAM: 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4 2400Mhz G.SKILL Ripjaws
HDD: Main: Intel 240GB SSD; Dump: 120GB OCZ older model SSD; Storage: 3TB WD Green
GFX: Gigabyte GTX 970 4GB
PSU: 750W Corsair HX750i Modular PSU

I'm a game developer; in addition to games, this machine is to run intensive operations such as baking lighting in UE4/Unity, record live video of gameplay for both work and non-work related purposes in full 1080p, and maximize productivity.

I've already assembled the build (As a matter of fact, the final piece--the power supply--just came in the mail today. I flip the switch tonight.)

I'm retroactively posting to see if I could've done marginally better for the money I spent, or things you would've done differently.

Looks really good. Just not a fan of the case personally but that doesn't matter

As you bought a "k" cpu, the cooler is probably a little weak if you want to (seriously) overclock.
