Seems good to me.

PS: I am no expert in SSDs, but I think you'll be better with Samsung 840 pro

1. 1000W PSU is ridiculous for this machine even if you ran SLI/CF a 1000W is way too much, get a 750W plently of power if you decide to go CF on your 280x at some point, suggesting http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
2. if you want really nice case cooling i would suggest Noctua fans instead of CM, i have 2 myself and they move a lot of air and are deadly silent
3. may as well get Corsair Vengenace or G.skill Ripjaws ram instead of Kingston
4. get the Samsung 840 EVO SSD 120GB instead of Kingston

the rest looks fine

Damn, I forgot to mention that the PSU is a total overkill, and I thought about recommending another RAM but forgot that too at the end.

Thanks! Regarding the ram what voltages do you suggest for stable overclock together with my cpu in the future? I heard it also depends on my MB? Sorry I'm yet to be familiar with overclocking. Also for the fans are the gentletyphoons kaze 2000 also good? I heard they move even more air but do get noisy. Cheers!

1. on my z87 mobo i don't have to change RAM voltage, just enable "XMP", then my RAM runs at full speed without having to change any voltage
2. for CPU overclock it really depends on how good your chip is, i have my i5 4670k overclocked to 4,4GHz on 1.200v which is very good, just try and tweak around, start at 4GHz at like 1.100v, and to see if it's stable with the chosen overclock and voltage use IntelBurntest run it 10times on High atleast, and watch temps with RealTemp, if it's stable and it should be at those settings then increase slowly and do it again until you are at where you want to be.
3. i don't know that fan and i couldn't really find anything about it, sorry, i would still go with noctua but only because i use them myself otherwise i would probably recommend any other brand i would use :)

Thanks, but a few days ago I just saw a MSI 7990 for very cheap (475 euros) so I end up buying it too, now I'm wondering would 1000W be not enough if I have 2 280x and a HD7990. I'm planning to try out some mining with those 3 cards. What do you guys think? I can undervolt those cards too.
