decided to change from a FX-6300 cpu to a core i5 and this is the result:

was wondering if I made an error that might reduce performance noticeably due to some sort of comparability issue

More about : 1000 build

That looks like a great rig to me! You'll be more then happy when it's all put together. Have fun building it and best of luck on your endeavor :)  those are probably almost the same parts I would chose for a 1000 dollar rig.

Better quality board. The Pro3 is a lower quality Z87 board. The Extreme4 has better power phases so it overclocks better.
Better quality case. That case is the same as the Cooler Master Elite 430 except it has a red LED fan over a blue one. The Elite 430 is a really low quality case with horrible airflow in it. You can get a much better like the Bitfenix Shinobi at the same price.
The Antec HCG620M can knock off $10 off your build. The main difference between the Antec and the EVGA is that the EVGA is 80+ GOLD, but the difference isn't that big. Up to you though, both psus are good .

I actually planned on overclocking my CPU, how much more efficient is the mobo you chose at overclocking compared to the pro3?

It should be much better. The Pro3 is the cheapest Z87 chipset motherboard because, well, it's cheap. The Extreme4 is a great motherboard, the Z77 Extreme4 was one of the most recommended Z77 boards for Ivy Bridge, and it continues onto the Z78 chipset.

For the case fan ports, the Extreme4 only has 1 4 pin, correct? I planned on getting 2-3 Cooler Master jetflo 120mm fans which are 4-pin fans, would I be able to do that or would I have to get 3 pins because there aren't enough 3-pin ports on th emobo

Found this http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs... I believe the jetflo fans have all black cords, will plugging them in backwards (not plugging in the ground side but plugging in the fan control) cause any damage? or will I just have to switch them around after power on the system

It's not possible to plug them in backwards like that. Each fan connector has a sort of slide, if you will, on the back. So when you plug in the connector into the fan port, it should slide right in. If you try to plug it in backwards like that, it physically won't fit.
If you don't understand what I'm talking about, look at this picture:

As you can see, it's made specifically so that the first 3 slots go in no matter what as they are necessary to power the fan.

That is a great machine! It will serve its purpose for you for many years! Oh, don't be fooled by my avatar. I am a believer that the CPU fits one the single person, not the population. For me, AMD is MY answer, not every one else's. Good luck on your build!:)

Is this the mobo you chose? http://

I didn't realize it was a micro ATX until just now but it looks like it's the same size as an ATX mobo in that video, and I thought micro ATX boards usually only have 1 PCI-E slot but on the newegg store page the mobo has a lot of stuff for a micro board

Yeah that's the motherboard.
And it is a full size ATX motherboard. The mATX version is the ASRock Z87M Extreme4, which is totally different.
