the cooler you chose is worse than the one that comes with the cpu. get a hyper 212 EVO at least. the RAM would be better if it were 2 sticks of 4GB rather than 1 8GB stick. why do you need so many fans? the case already comes with 3

I dont know why i chose that fan, it just followed my theme and the 1 8gb ram stick is because i wanted to upgrade to 16 then 24 then 32, and i want those fans because i want to follow a theme. but thanks for that about the cpu fan, i would have never new!:)

i see, but there is no need for more than 8GB for gaming and no way will you need more than 16GB.

that power supply is good enough to overclock both cpu and gpu. it will not have enough power for SLI though
