I've excited to get back to building my own rigs, its been a while and could use some general advice on what you think of the components i'll be using( pricing, compatibility, missing hardware, etc...)
Case: Fractal Design Arc Mini
PSU: Corsair Professional Series™ HX750
Memory: Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 8GB kit
CPU: Core i5-2500K
MB: Maximus IV GENE-Z
Cooling: Hydro Series™ H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
HDD: Corsair Force 3
Total: 1100 (New egg and Amazon)
I already have optical, nvidia 570 and sound card because I have a good headset.
My plan is to OC to 4.2-4.7. It looks like i don't really need liquid cooling but i wanted to get used to working liquid cooling using relatively cheap hardware and to reduce noise a bit. This will be purely for gaming so I don't need alot of storage ( BF3, SWTOR, Skyrim).
My main concerns are the motherboard(is there a better cheaper) and is the 750W a major overkill (I do plan to reuse for my next build next year which will dual GPUs).

Though it's just little things I'd change to save some money. You don't need my GPU I suggest though since you have the 570.
