I have a new build. Low price for it:
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=71114&promoid=1382 (Asus P8Z77-V Lk)
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=54274&promoid=1261 ( Zalman cooler)
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=59431&promoid=1261 (8gb Corsair ram)
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=70541&promoid=1261 (i5 3570k)

I wanted to know if it was compatible, if the ram is good and if I had to buy a low profile ram because that zalman cooler is huge.
Anything missing? I have the case the GPU and the PSU

More about : check order

corsair ram is a no go. get mushkin blackline or gskill ripjaw x. whichever one is cheaper

for the cpu cooler, you can get a hyper 212 evo for 28.99 instead. slightly better.

remember to enter the promo code FacebookRALLY at the shopping cart to save 2 bucks (yeah its not a lot)

get the mobo fast. keep in mind that it only has 3 fan connectors from what i heard

That particular cooler shouldn't pose any problems with the ram. Since you only have two sticks, even if there was an issue you could populate the outer two slots with no problem. Having said that Corsair does offer low profile Vengeance that are just as good.

However I'm wondering why you chose such an outdated cooler. There are many superior coolers out there in that price range, such as the Coolermaster hyper 212+.
