I think you've made some good choices overall, but I'd make a few adjustments:

Changing from 16 to 8GB of RAM and going with a cheaper motherboard allows you to move up to a R9 290 and also to add a CPU cooler so you can OC your unlocked i5.
I picked the U12P to keep with your choice of fans already, but you can switch it out with another if you like, of course.

EDIT: i didn't see that you already had the H240 picked. Disregard the cooler but still get the 290 instead.
