Hey guys. I'm currently making a build for a gaming station. I have one ready, and I'm in the process of double checking it before I order. I have about $1100 to spend, and I'm right on the mark on that.

I have two monitors, a 24"in and a 19". Obviously I play on the 24" and at a 1080p resolution. I plan to overclock the processor.

TOTAL: $1110 NOT INCLUDING TAX AND SHIPPING

Questions:

Is everything compatible?
When I get all the items, will I be able to install them all in the case, everything fit fine, run it and install Win7, then play games without any issues?
Will it all fit together?
Is everything a suitable choice?

I really need to know if it's all compatible, I'll have lots of trouble if something isn't due to difficulties refunding items. Thanks for help, let me know if you need to know anything else.

If I order it today, it will come in 5 days. Besides an OS, after I order, will everything fit in the case and then run? I won't need anything else, correct? EVERYTHING IS COMPATIBLE?

Hi. Looks pretty good from where I'm sitting. You have done a good jon on that list. The case is fine and you will have plenty of room. Usually, Newegg tries to have it to you in 3 Days, at least that has been my experience.

Also, my GPU isn't bottlenecked, right?

Not many faster processors out there so you should be fine about bottlenecking.

CPU Cooler is a little weak, what is your overclock target?

Not sure, maybe like 4.5GHz. If it improves my gaming experience, I'll go to 4.5. if not, then I won't OC. What do you recommend?

Sorry, lunchtime.

You won't reach 4.5Ghz with that cooler, unless you get a top 5% CPU.

1.2 volts stock you can see temps as high as 80C with an air cooler, 1.2-1.25 can usually reach 4.2-4.3Ghz. It takes more like 1.3v to reach 4.5Ghz, and those are temps closer to 100C.

Something like the Noctua DH-14 or Phanteks PH-TC14PE will let you hit 4.3Ghz with reasonable temps.

For reference: I used a Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme on a 4770k and got 79C at 1.25 volts at 4.3Ghz under gaming load.

I also used Corsair H80i (single fan config) with max pump speed and high fan speed. Reaches 80 - 85C peaks under gaming loads.
