1st Build (Watercooled, Gaming) Feedback/Help Needed

Well firstly, let me tell you a little about myself. I am 15 and from Australia. I have previously had crappy laptops, but would like to build my own desktop gaming rig.

Here are the specs:



Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX670 2GB ASUS DCU II TOP $548
Processor INTEL IVY BRIDGE CORE CORE i7 3770K $349
HDD 2TB WESTERN DIGITAL BLACK $188
Power Supply COOLERMASTER SILENT PRO GOLD 800W $179
Water Cooling Kit EK-KIT H3O 360 HFX $315
Mouse RAZER MAMBA 4G $144
Keyboard RAZER BLACKWIDOW ULTIMATE $145
Windows OEM 64BIT WIN7 PROFFESIONAL $138
RAM 16GB KIT 1600 (8GB x 2) G.SKILL CL10 RIPJAWS-X $105
Optical Drive INTERNAL SATA BLU-RAY COMBO PIONEER $68
Motherboard ASUS ROG MAXIMUS V FORMULA $?
Case COOLERMASTER COSMOS II ULTRA TOWER $368
Headset RAZER TIAMAT 7.1 $228
Sound Card ASUS ROG XONAR PHOEBUS $219
Additional Fans 9 x SICKLEFLOW 120 2000 RPM RED LED $108

I would appreciate any feedback/recommendations, but my main question is-

Will this radiator fit in the Cosmos II (in a push configuration)?

  1. For gaming, the i7 is not needed. Get the 3570k.
  2. If it is not professional video editing, an i7 is still not needed.

    Forgot to mention- will probably also do video editing. (Mainly Sony Vegas & Adobe After Effects)
  4. Oh ok awesome! Thanks for saving me some money!
  5. Unless you care a lot about speed of video editing, an i5 will be just fine.
