  1. I am planning a build and someone told me on my thread that I should watch out for the RAM and CPU cooler, if you are using a bulky CPU cooler/ might get one, I was told to get the low profile version http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233186 so both the CPU cooler and the RAM will fit. I am also using a cooler master V6GT and its massive.

    I see that you don't have a third party CPU cooler but its something to keep in mind
  2. Looks good.

    FYI. I don't see a seperate CPU cooler, so I assume you'll use the stock one. If you plan to overclock, you should invest in a better CPU cooler.
  3. if you are planning to overclock, which i dont know why you would get the 2500k if you werent, i would definitely add a coolermaster hyper 212 (+, or evo depending on how much you want to overclock) at the least
  4. Yeah, I definitely plan on OCing, but will not be doing so until I purchase an aftermarket heatsink. I just couldn't fit it into the budget this go around, but will certainly be purchasing one soon after i build the PC.
