  1. CPU-Kühler CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo 25E.
    For gaming you don't need more than 8GB RAM , and buy the low profile not to interfere with cpu cooler http://www1.hardwareversand.de/articledetail.jsp?aid=48850&agid=1193&pvid=9lsiexuz9_gxkd6yo6&ref=27&lb
  2. I would back the RAM down to 8GB from 16GB, never heard of the PSU manufactorer but I'm in the US, just check to make sure they are quality. Also make sure the CPU fan will fit in the case without hitting anything (fans, side of case, RAM). But looks good!
  3. Thanks everyone!
