I think the Z87 boards are to be used if you are overclocking. Since you aren't overclocking (i5 4670K allows overclocking, i5 4670 doesn't), you might as well go for a H87 board like ASUS H87 Pro.

That board is just in case I upgrade processors. Maybe to an i7 2600k or something.

I prefer Intel and Nvidia vs Intel and AMD. I go AMD chips with AMD cards.

I've heard that case is not the best for cable management, so you may want to look into changing that.

Any recommendations for a case with 2 front USB ports? I found some from CoolerMaster and Corsair for around the same price.

Yeah, Corsair and Cooler Master usually have good cases. The NZXT Source 210 Elite might be a good choice as well.

Ty :D So I can buy 2133 speed ram and it would be compatible with my current build? What are the requirements to overclock ram? Do you need extra cooling or anything?

Not going to buy an aftermarket, sticking with stock. If I upgrade to an unlocked processor then I will.

So ram frequency will be fine as long as I manually set timing and voltage?
