You have posted in the Suoppot/Hotlines section of the Forum. Try posting this in the Systems section here *click me* under 'homebuilt'. Looks like you could buy a pretty good car for the cost of what you have listed. Check the top of the link provided for ideas.

Yes.. case that is cool vs cpu cooler that works... Get the Antec 600 or 900 and use the $ to get the Corsair H series cooler. I assume you will want to twiddle with OC since you are getting a K cpu.

You have a few dollars sunk into that case and mobo and you shorted yourself on gpu power. Here's a few changes to that build that will put you into a better vid card and ram without taking any quality away. $99.99
