Solid build...I'd choose better (lower voltage, lower CAS) RAM and better SSD but nothing "wrong" with your choices really.

yeah the ram the voltage is a little high but nothing to cause a problem hopefully. i've owned the same ssd before and loved it but no longer own that pc.

There are plenty of people who use RAM with that voltage (usually how you can get such high speed at that price), using the XMP profile in BIOS. I just prefer to choose RAM that works within voltage spec and with lower timings but hard to argue against that speed at that price!
