Seems pretty nice, but the SSD RAID makes me wonder. Does that really work?

You didn't really leave much margin with the PSU. I would have spent some of that cash on a higher quality unit, like the Antec SG850. ( Now there is also the Corsair 850HX, but that was not available two months ago.)

Those are my only nitpicks.
