I finished the build today, here are the results!
Went ahead and bought a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Cooler since I knew I'd be OCing. The thing is massive, almost as big as the mobo itself!
Check out the clearance between the CPU cooler and Ram sticks!
Mounting the components into the case. This case is great, although it is cavernous for an mATX mobo! Also, the case panel cleared the CPU cooler by about a half inch.
Now the fun part! I got a stable OC to 4.5ghz at 1.368v / x45 multiplier, and noticed when I was experimenting that anything over 1.4v would auto throttle even with Turbo Core disabled.
Here's a breakdown of the final cost:

G.Skill DDR3 2133mhz 2x4GB Ripjaws - $35
