I already have all of the components selected right now and I'm essentially looking for advice on tweaking, changing, etc. Let me know if there are some components that I should scale down, others where I should upgrade, etc. I'm looking to keep it around $1100-$1200.

If you're looking for some serious overclocking 4.5+ghz I'd get a h100i, and I'd also go for an EXT 6 motherboard.

The evo does fine on my ivy, im not sure about the rosewill CPU's but i heard they heat up pretty high... do a Nactua d14 would be the best if you plan to overclock pretty high, I personally am OC'd on my 3570k at 4.3 with stock temps (meaning same temp as stock clock with the stock fan) so it's a great cooler for the price.

I wouldn't buy that SSD tbh. I would go for a vertex4 or samsung 830 series. Have had good experience with both never any issues.

Build looks good otherwise. You will be happy with this rig for a long while, exspecially if u OC
