This build went quite well. I ended up exchanging the ASUS P8Z77-V LK for the Gigabyte Z77X-UP4, because the blue on the ASUS board was throwing off the colour scheme. Otherwise the build went well, and my customer absolutely loved it. The NZXT Hue was a bit of a surprise for him, but he was dazzled by the light show when I first plugged it in.
First game we loaded up was Tomb Raider. Handled it beautifully. After that, we sat on his couch and watched anime for a good 3 days straight while I recovered from surgery. Good times.
