This is my first build and I am looking for any improvements that could be made.  I will mostly use this rig for gaming.

Well, the CoolerMaster Seidon 120M is only $30 and it is a 120mm AIO Liquid Cooler, it would be quite an upgrade from the Hyper 212 Evo, not sure how long the sale is for though. Oh, and it is only $30 after rebate, it is $75 initially, so I would get that and just use the rebate card to buy your DVD-ROM Drive and use the rest on something else. Solid build though, I have that CPU, but a different motherboard.
