The 3570K/EX4 would be a great build, will blow away the AMD build - will actually blow away most any AMD build in everything but rendering video - and that includes the 8350

Do you think that i should add or change anything to the build to make it better or do you think it would run fine as is.

Now that I'm back to it, knew something looked off - either you'll want the 'Z77' Rock Extreme 4 with a 3570K or if really wanting the 'Z87' then you'll be wanting the 4670K CPU - you list Z87 and 3570K which won't run together the 3570 is 3rd gen and runs on the 1155 socket Z77 mobos, while the Z87 mobos are 1150 socket for 4th Gen Haswell CPUs

The 3570K OCs very well so may want to look at a Hyper 212 EVO, for a cooler, have one on my 3570K and runs nice and cool at 4.7 (and that's 24/7)
