I feel really good about this one. I think i've found the right build for me, but i'm going to need a bit of feedback.

I'm going to overclock this build.

I'm open to any suggestions.

This build will come in at $2200 aud or so.

Here's the components i've chosen.

Case: BitFenix Prodigy Green With Window

Mitherboard: EVGA Z87 Stinger Motherboard

Cpu: i5 4670k

Cpu cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H100i CPU Cooler

Ram: Crucial Tactical Tracer BLT2KIT8G3D1608DT2TXOB 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3

Graphics card: EVGA GeForce GTX 780 3GB

Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120 GB + Western Digital WD Blue 1TB WD10EZEX

Monitor: ASUS VE248H 24in Widescreen LED Monitor

Additional cooling: BitFenix Spectre Pro 230mm Black Tinted Green LED Fan To provide airflow and lighting.

Power Supply: Silverstone Strider Plus 600W ST60F-PS 80 Plus Silver

That's all that i've come up with.

As usual, i've got questions.

Will that Psu power this build if i overclock it?

How much can i overclock it with the H100i?

That's all the questions i've got.

I made some changes to the build.

It's green now.

1. Yes, but if you want why not seasonic?

2.4.3-(4.5 maybe (I like to run cool)), not sure it depends on the chip and I have no experience with haswell.

I like the build. This seems to be a pretty good gaming rig. If you are thinking of doing any video editing I may suggest stepping up to an i7 4770K processor for the estra threads hyper threading provides. I don't see the PSU having a problem providing enough juice even when overclocked. Your build should only pull around 450 watts or so normally overclocking. Personally I prefer Corsair or another bigger name for my PSU but thats just personal preference.

Hardware Secrets gave that PSU their golden award. Really nice unit.

I apppreciate the fast responses. i'm sticking with the i5, the i7 is just too steep in price for me.

I was hoping to only spend less than $1900 but i've already gone over.
