I'd change the PSU to Cooler Master G550M - better voltage regulation (since it's not group regulated, but DC-DC) and longer warranty than the Corsair. Or Cooler Master V450S - it still has far more power than necessary, and it's a higher grade PSU overall.
As for the case, I'd consider getting the Zalman Z3 Plus, which doesn't seem to be of worse quality than CM K380, while it's cheaper and it comes with three more fans included.
But those are just nitpicks, there are no big problems with this build.

Run the onscreen gadget that lists your memory and CPU core performance, that way you can see where your system demands are at any given time. Mine was using the 1st core the most as is typical, up to 100 percent at times, doing video playback from DVD! The 3rd core is the next CPU core to get duty when the first one is busy, at least under HyperThreading operation. My memory meter for 4GB was at 1.3GB most of the time, so if you're closer to the threshold, you'll see performance hits.
If you're looking to expand beyond Haswell with the latest tech, and considering the GPU, I'd go well beyond the 600watt PSU, it's low end in today's tech World
