So far i want these in my build someone please tell me if it will work and please tell me what else i should get. The ??? means i dont know what to get

GPU-nvidia gtx 780

Fan-??? im think of liquid cooling, since its better if i am correct (is koolance good? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... )

Case-Cooler Master Cosmos II

CPU-Intel i7-4770k

Memory-Corsiar dominator platinum 16Gb 8x2

Storage-SSD-???
HDD-???

Motherboard-asus maximus vi extreme

i know there is more things i need like power things please list them below since i don really know. thank you. (i dont care about the prices of any part so suggest anything that would give the best performance, obviously not something thats too expensive eg. quadro)

Here is the best build with your preferences. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1inDx You will not need to buy any additional parts (i.e. cables/case fans/screws) in order to complete your build. The only parts that you will need are a keyboard/mouse and a monitor. The CPU cooler that I listed is currently the best air cooler, although depending on when you plan on building this, I might suggest the new Cooler Master V8 GTS once its performance has been reviewed.

EDIT: My apologies, I did not see your preference for case, just disregard my case in the build unless you like it.

would a liquid cooler be a better choice since i want to over clock

A liquid cooler would be more complicated, and would be significantly louder unless you bought better fans because the stock one. However I just realized that the Corsair Dominator Platinum RAM is too tall and would be incompatible with the Noctua NH-D14 heatsink. I would suggest a 2x8 kit of Vengeance LP RAM. You won't notice any difference between the two, and the Vengeance LP would be cheaper.

ok thx and why would liquid coling be complicated sry for being kinda annoying but i dont wanna buy a fan then buy a liquid cooling later

Liquid cooling consists of multiple parts. You have the radiator, fans, the heatsink, the pump, and the liquid. Whereas an air cooler has just the heatsink and fan. The Noctua NH-D14 is very close to the cooling capabilities of a closed loop liquid cooling system, while being significantly quieter, and without the risk of one of those parts failing, and if the tubes were to break or the radiator to leak it would be catastrophic to your system.

i guess so, i might go with air cooling but would the silver arrow extreme fit with my ram in that case beacuse from what i read they perform about the same, i dont care about the noise i mainly want performance since i wear headphones anyway

That CPU cooler might fit with the RAM if you move the fans around. If you have it in a push configuration it will go over the RAM and make it incompatible with high heat spreaders.

lol i did not understand a thing (push config) but anyway which fan would u advice? and would a 2800mhz ram be faster than 1600mhz and is the top part of the normal vengence just for looks

A push config means that the fans are pushing air through the heatsink rather than a pull config where the fans are pulling air through the heatsink. You won't realistically notice much difference with any RAM above 1866Mhz unless you are benchmarking it. The heat spreaders on RAM are mostly for show, they are only necessary for very high speed RAM that is being overclocked.

ok thank you very much thats about it
