Yes it is good and the Ram will work fine since it is 1.5volts.

That is a great motherboard you have bought there and will overclock quite well with that processor. In addition your ram is perfectly fine for that motherboard and ram. Also since you have chosen the 3570k are you planning on overclocking? You have the processor and motherboard to do so and now you just need the cpu cooler.

Edit: The stock cooler is sufficient for stock clocks which is what you have, however for overclocking you want another aftermarket cooler. Such can be the Hyper 212 EVO if on a budget or tight on money.

Well I hope this helps you out with your research on overclocking:

^those two links were meant for sandy bridge but Ivy bridge is not so different in terms of overclocking. The only thing I know that differentiates them is the architecture which makes Ivy bridge a bit faster than sandy at the same clock speeds and that Ivy bridge gets hotter when you overclock it and tinker with voltages (increasing voltages to be specific) which is due to the die size.

In addition here is a video that shows you step by step overclocking with the exact same motherboard and processor:
