  1. Are you sure you're using the 3450 and not the 3570K?

    Make sure your RAM is low profile if you ever want to use an aftermarket cooler, and I'd say you're good - that looks good to me.
  2. 3570K for $190, in store only though

    Most vengance memory has tall heat sinks, which you do not want (granted some of it is low profile). Those taller heat sinks can cause issues with some oversized CPU coolers (not the Hyper 212 +/EVO), so just be aware of what you are getting.

    Other than that it all looks like a pretty decent computer. Hope you enjoy it!
