Hello, I'm a novice builder and I just wanted to make sure that all of these parts will work together. Any other advice is appreciated.

  1. You don't need the extra case fan.

    I'd switch out your SSD with this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147163

    And then get the 3570K - you will lose functionality of the Z77 and GTX 670 with the 2500K.

    Otherwise everything else looks good.
  2. ^+1 You get PCIe 3.0 adavantage's
  3. i at first thought you were going to spend a dollar on the rig

    assuming that you wont do SLI in the future

  4. I would switch out the 2500k for the 3570k like g-unit said and also get the newer CM Hyper 212 Evo instead of the 212 Plus, better cooling :D. Everything else looks good!

    Hyper 212 Evo
