Get a Large Water cooling solution, then get a bigger 30" + monitor, nothing else needs to be improved, its already good enough..

NO dont go wasting your money on a fancy mechanical keyboard for 400 bucks... you cant even game on it properly...its just a keyboard, just go after the normal logitech stuff..if you want to type that bad you can get a type writer

Standard blackwidow is only ~$100 and has the same features as other gaming keyboards

Better processor, 1100t for 3-way 580 sli is a joke - and not a funny one

2600k/970 should be a lot better.

Watercooling on those gpu's, h70 is good enough for your chip!

And get a better monitor!

I'm in agreement with everyone who has said to add monitors or, in my opinion, upgrade to at least a 30" LCD capable of 2560x1600 resolution. GTX580 in Tri-SLI are already showing CPU bottlenecks with highly overclocked i7 processors (Quad, and even Hex, cores to a degree), but to relegate it to a single monitor at 1080p or smaller resolution means that at least one of those cards is kicking back just waiting to see *some* kind of action.

Def a full water setup. Research the water cooling section on here would be a good start. The rasa kits are nice I have found but a custom loop will probably had to be made for this setup. GL!

a 30" monitor will put those 580's to work. I love the 912 but it doesn't have room for the rads necessary to WC that system. Get a 2600k and keep your H70 if you are going to stick with the 912. Plenty of good WC cases if you decide to swap out the 912.

lrn2mechanicalkeyboard. Blackwidow and 6Gv2 are great for gaming and cost $100 or less. And mechanicals have many options so you can get the keystroke you want. They will also last through many builds so the expense is no big deal.
