Hi, I'm building my first gaming PC and i would love some feedback for possible compatibility issues and the like.
I may overclock it at some point but am not too sure at the moment. These are the parts i am thinking about buying:

Case - Corsair Carbie Series 300R
Motherboard - MSI Z87-G45
Graphics Card - MSI Nvidia GTX 760 2GB
CPU - i5 4670k
RAM - Corsair Vengenance 2X4GB, 1066 Mhz
PSU - XFX Pro750W Core Edition
Wireless Module - TP-Link WDN4800
HDD - Samsung HN-M101MBB 1TB

Another question I have is that if I do decide to overclock the CPU, will the fan and heatsink that come with the CPU be enough? Or will I need an aftermarket CPU cooler?

Feedback is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Your build look verry good. Yes you will need an aftermarket cooler for overclocking. A good and cheap option is Cooler Master Evo.

Best solution

To do
- get the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo
- get a 600 - 650 watts PSU if it's cheaper
- get 1600 MHz RAM
- get Western Digital's Hard Drives instead. The Caviar Blue series would be fine
- Get the Intel 530 series SSD or Samsung 840 evo / pro
