Nice build. I would probably use the money from the fan controller to either get a faster processor or invest in some type of external hard drive to back up all those important files. Editing in any form is really heavy on your machine so getting the fastest processor would be one of my top priorities. Also might want to check out a work station card for editing instead of one geared more towards gaming.
