Any help would be amazing, and feel free to tell me any improvements on specs as well. I'm open on any price range that's somewhat rational, and I'd like to avoid Water Cooling since this is my first build and I don't want to mess something up that badly. And yes, I do want to overclock someday. My specs currently are:

CPU:Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54670K

CPU Cooler: None as of right now.

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-D3H LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10R

Storage's: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) AND Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Video Card: EVGA 04G-P4-3777-KR GeForce GTX 770 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

Case: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black / Green Trim Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Power Supply: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black / Green Trim Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Optical Drive: ASUS Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 8MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS

Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit - OEM

Any help would be very much appreciated, if you notice any OEM's beside the operating system, please tell me.

First off, budget? An entry level option is the Cooler Master Hyper-212 Evo, but don't underestimate it, It can do some OCing. The best air cooling imo is the Noctua NH D14, kinda expensive but keeps things cool and quiet. (Note- it's pretty big, make sure you don't have super-massive ram sticks.) Corsair H80i is a very good watercooling option, especially in push-pull.

Looking at your parts I would suggest DDR3 1600, not 1333.

Thank you, I'm going with the Cooler Master Hyper-212 Evo, and I'm using Corsair Vengeance sticks.

Alright, I changed from 1333 to 1600, and now I'm going to use Vengeance.
