X79 Rebuild 2015: Rampage downsized

Level 7
After having many, many complication with my old build which was originally bought around this time in 2012 I have finally switched many parts out to do my "rebuild."

Here are the parts that are carrying over from my old Rampage 4 Extreme based system:

Intel Core i7 3930K
Prolimatech Aluminum Vortex 140mm red LED fans

.......that's it.

I pulled out my old HD 6970's last year and have been trying to balance college workload and buying new parts which lead to buying a single GTX 670 FTW 4GB from EVGA that UPS/EVGA lost/damaged/stole/it's gone. So after a while I picked up a wonderful Asus R9 290 DCII. But enough story time, thanks to many people on forums and trades that happened, I have my load of new parts I am hoping to use:

Above mentioned Asus R9 290 DCII
Asus Rampage IV Gene
G.SKILL Trident X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) F3-1600C7Q-32GTX
Cooler Master Nepton 280L (with a lapped block)
2x Intel 240GB 730 Series
1 Samsung 850 Evo 500GB drive
Thermaltake Core V21 mATX chassis
Cooler Master SPH 1300 PSU RGB lighting kit
Maybe some sort of PWM fan hub (depends on how many fans I can fit in this lil' guy

Here are some pics of the test fitting I have done so far:



My goal is to have this system totally done by the end of the day Sunday 2-15-2015
