This is the hardware:

CPU: Haswell i5-4670k

Graphics Card: GTX 770 4gb

Motherboard: MSI Z87 MPOWER MAX, Socket-1150

Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX 750

CPU cooler: Hyper 212 EVO

Case: CM Storm enforcer

HDD: 2TB WD Red

SSD: Samsung 840 120 gb

Looks pretty good. Many people will point out that you don't need an i7 or 16GB of memory, but that is what I bought and I am not regretting it.

Hyper Evo 212 is, shockingly, almost undersized for a haswell chip. You should be able to reach decent overclocks, but nothing crazy.

Oh, posted the wrong CPU, the one i had in mind was actually the i5-4760K.
So you would recommend that i get a bigger cooler? - Like noctua 6 or something ?

The larger dual fan ones will perform better, Noctua NH-D14 or Phanteks PT14PE as examples, but we are talking the difference between something like 4.2-4.3Ghz and maybe 4.4-4.5Ghz, it depends what your target overclock is and how good the chip you end up with is.

1.2-1.25 volts will get you 4.2-4.3Ghz on an average chip. That puts it around 75C or more with a good air cooler or closed loop cooler. 1.3-1.35 volts might get you 4.5Ghz , but temps will begin to skyrocket past 1.3 volts.

I don't have adequate cooling for 4.5Ghz, but it did run at 1.35 volts with an input voltage of 1.8, little smidge of load line calibration as well. Have to start looking at custom water loops when you want to run 4.5Ghz or more constantly.

Alright, I dont think i will be overclocking it, since i dont have any experience doing it.
But thanks very much for the answer :D
