Urgent, because some of the deals end in a couple of hours.

long story short, I'm building a PC to surprise my brother. And I want to know if everything is compatible. Help fast!

CPU: Intel i5-3570k

GPU: GTX 760
RAM: Corsair Vengeance
Case: Raidmax Smilodon
Fan: Artic Freezer
PSU: Seasonic
Wireless Card here
Hard drive here
Blu Ray drive
Windows 7 OS

Is this all compatible? did I leave anything out? Thanks in advance!

Yes. Those components will work together. You also have everything you need to put a working PC together. The only possible issue I see is the side window fan on the case interfering with the CPU cooler. Though, if it does you can just remove the fan. Happy building!

I did think that would be an issue to but according to this video

the put the same graphics card into the case & it seemed that it wasn't interfering?

EDIT: didn't realize you said cpu cooler!

2nd EDIT: do the stock fans for cpu's tend to not do so well at cooling? I've never used one & don't know the noise/reliability of them

Thanks for the input guys, but again if anyone sees this, do stock fans for CPUs tend to not do so well at cooling? Should I get the aftermarket fan even though this case has a side fan as well?

Intel won't put in a fan that's going to burn their cpu up, so it would good.

Stock fans do fine at stock clocks. If you want to OC more than a tiny amount, you'll want an aftermarket cooler.
