If you plan to try OCing to 4.2GHz, you have the wrong cpu cooler. Use the Corsair H70 or one of the top performing air coolers.

The Xigmatech psu is fine.

The rest of the stuff looks OK too.

Academic since u bought parts but take note LGA 1156 mobos w/o PLX chip/bridge shall suffer bottleneck/performance penalty for SATA/USB 3.0

Not All USB 3.0 Implementations Are Created Equal

Quote:
Stand-alone cards may be bottlenecked on older PCI Express systems, as well as practically all Intel machines that implement PCI Express 2.0 only on the graphics interfaces. In case you aren't up to speed on the situation there, the company's Lynnfield- and Clarkdale-based desktop processor employ an integrated PCI Express 2.0 controller limited to 16 lanes. The remaining connectivity comes from chipsets like P55 and H57, which run at PCIe 1.1 signaling rates, thereby handicapping performance.

First I would like to say that, this system here I had for about 4 to 5 months now. I can't fit the H70 in my case due to the windows side panel fan switch is a 230mm fan
second is that I super lapped the hell out of the 4.2GHz
