  1. usb problem with Haswell is over, but, uh, can you buy from stores in ?
  2. I see nothing wrong with your build.
    You do have a case??

    As a matter of preference, I would not use an all in one cooler when a good air cooler will do.
    Liquid coolers tend to be noisy, expensive, and less reliable.
    I see tales of woe from leaking coolers. For the same price, you can buy a Noctua NH-D14 or phanteks and cool just as well.
    a 4670K gets very hot after you give it 1.3v. Great cooling short of ln2 will not give you much more than .2 or so more oc. I gave up and am content with a no hassle 4.0. How well you can do is mostly dependent on the goodness of your particular chip. I really think that a cm hyper212 will do the job and the money is spent better elsewhere.

    Perhaps a 240gb ssd instead?

    Here is a slight tweak of your plan. Note the 250GB SSD and the world-class air cooler.

    A 650W supply would be fine so I upped it to a top quality one with fully modular cables.

    Also went to a low profile RAM so it will easily fit under the cooler.
  4. awesome guys,

    thanks for the input.

    I may go the noctura as all the reviews say it has better performance than the corsair h80

    i wanted to keep the 850 PSU just in case i decide to xfire/sli (which ever this one is) later

    never thought about the profile of the RAM. will need to look into this more. everyones saying i dont need 16gb is this true?
  5. Ram is cheap, with your budget, I would buy 16gb.
    No game needs it, but windows can keep more in ram, available for instant reuse.
    You want supported ram. I accessed the G.skil ram selection link, and entered your motherboard.
    You will get a big list of compatible ram.

    The low heat spreaders are a plus.
