    Yeah, that setup would work. If you are only gaming on this computer then you could save some money by dropping down to 8 gb ram. I would also highly recommend getting and SSD (around 120gb) for your OS and applications while leaving the HDD for mass storage.

    Edit: Also look into the i5 4690k since it is the newer version of the 4670k

    Yes there will probably be some video editing and live streaming involved also. I am planning on adding an SSD in the future. Thanks for the tip on the newer i5. also one more question. Does the h100i come with thermal paste pre-applied?
  3. I believe the h100i comes with some pretty good thermal paste pre-applied but not positive.
