I am assembling a rig, with an i5 3570, motherboard: gigabyte ga-h77m-d3h, and the afore mentioned ram, would that be incompatible with my system, as the description of the ram says its designed for 2nd generation and Z68 & P67 motherboards

No you'll be perfectly fine, the X Series was released during the the prime of SB, hence the 2nd Gen tag, these also work perfectly well with 4thGN Haswells,,, Basically DRAM is DRAM

Just a word of caution the heat spreaders on the ripjaws is large and can be troublesome to fit under some CPU coolers. I would get a set of lower profile RAM just to be safe because the large heat spreader really doesn't offer an advantage, just looks.

My config:
processor: i5 3570
motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H77m-D3H
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM 1 TB
RAM: G.SKill 8 GB (2 X 4GB) 1600 Mhz
PSU: Corsair CX500 Builder Series
Graphic Card: Gtx 650 ti boost edition 2 GB

I doubt if i would need an extra cooler? i am gonna stay green, as in won't be overclocking or so. Do you think i would yet need a cooler?

You don't 'need' a CPU cooler if your not overclocking. Besides you don't have the k series CPU any ways, but I actually bought a CPU cooler for my system because of noise. It was after that I decided to overclock since I had it. I always recommend a CPU cooler just to help keep the system cool and quiet, you can get the hyper 212 for a decent price.

Try with the stock cooler and see how it does, then if needed can go to a third party cooler
