More about building wondering parts compatible
  1. Yeah, go to and select the parts, all compatibility issues will be shown if there are any. I also recommend you get a 4570k instead for the CPU.
  2. Intel® Core™ i5-4670T isnt for OC
    dont you want to build an OC gaming PC?
  3. Definitivly a great Pc all the parts are compatible.
  4. Well, I'm pretty new to this, and I'd rather not mess my PC up by overclocking.

    If I become less of an amateur someday, I'll consider buying a K and upgrading.
