everything is compatible.

I really, really dont like the Samsung 840 MZ series, samsung made this ssds as a way to introduce the mainstream user, they basicly use TLC NAND wich is used on low cost usb sticks, cheap tablets etc, ofcourse samsung software on the ssd makes up for the low speeds on the ssd, but i would rather get a good piece of Hardware on my 1500 - 2000 build than a balanced piece of hardware. Check out Corsair and crucial brands they are more stable and faster. Or just go for the Corsair Neutron SSD.

Eveything else is fine, good luck
