First off: Welcome to OCN!
Looks solid to me. I would go with a Closed Loop Cooler with that CPU, it will get hot and if you do not OC it, well, that is nearly a sin. I do not know about the Sabertooth and 3 way x-fire though. Might want to look around the forums about that as I am not sure what to recommend.

Here are some articles on Closed Loop Coolers from AnAndTech

Corsair and Swiftech from 2013

Hope this helps. Cheers.
