Everything looks good and despite the motherboard being mATX it does actually support SLI at x8/x8.

Unless your planning on overclocking past 4.5GHz id probably recommend an air cooler, over Corsair's closed water loops.

800w PSU should be enough to SLI that 570 if you ever wanted to.

Niec case choice as well, I recommend this to a friend recently for being a great price with some really nice features.

I would get an Asrock Z68 Extreme3 motherboard. No reason to pay the fancy ROG stuff.. This model has great features along with great price!

A good aftermarket heasink is more than enough for a stable overclock. You don't need to mess with watercooling..This model is the one I use on my overclocked Phenom II X4 955, and I'm very happy with it.

Also if you plan to SLI or Crossfire in the future, you need a more reliable PSU. Not from GS series but from TX Series..80+ Bronze, Modular for maximum airflow and with 750W still enough for GTX 570 SLI / 6970 Crossfire

Thanks! I'm willing for a 4.5 GHz clock, so is it risky going liquid cooling?

Its not risky, its just not worth the cost when air coolers will perform just as well. Hyper 212+ is a commonly recommend cooler and costs only about $30.
