Every PC I've ever had has been a beast of metal so i thought it was time for a change of pace.

I want to build a small form factor overclock-able gaming PC.

Here's the specs:

Case: Aerocool Dead Silence Cube

MoBo: ASRock Z87M Extreme 4

Cpu: i5 4670k

Cpu Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212X

RAM: 2x4 GB G.Skill Ares

Graphics card: Galaxy GeForce GTX 780 GC 3GB OR an R9 290 When the custom coolers come out

Storage: 1TB Seagate Barracuda

PSU: Corsair GS-700 V2

Additional Cooling: I'll probably put some Noctua fans in

That is all the important stuff.

I do intend on doing a bit of overclocking.

Will this system work with what i intend on using it for?

If you see anything wrong please tell me.

I'd def add a SSD for the boot at least but otherwise looks like a solid build.

This will do fine and dont 2ait for the 290x. It is not gonna be faster than the 780, but mostlikelywill be louder and warmer (depending on the cooler, but in general tests the r9s are)
