I'm guessing your primary use is gaming? It's a nice build if that's the case. Are you planning on overclocking? If so, yes the Z77 and 3570k will be great with the hyper 212.

If not, there's no need for some of this stuff, you can save a little money with an H77 board and a regular 3570 and you wouldn't need the hyper 212 and put that money towards a 120 or so GB SSD.

Also, unless your running 2 cards SLI, 750 watt psu is overkill. 600 or so would be more than sufficient. I have a 550 watt psu with 6 LED case fans and a very similar build to yours and it's more than sufficient. That can save you a little money there too.

I have a very similar build to yours, but I do not bother OC'ing, just not interested in the time as a hobby and I'm perfectly happy with how it performs. I saved the money on the components I mentioned above and put it towards a second hard drive, the 128GB Samsung 830 SSD which holds my OS, boot, main programs and the 1 game I play the most. Everything else is on my 1TB 7200 HDD. It takes 7 seconds for my computer to boot up and ready to go in Windows... the SSD is completely worth the money.

This isn't the most expensive build in the world, but it aint cheap either, and I figure if you're already spending 1300 or 1400 bucks building a computer, you might as well make it as fast as possible, an SSD will do that. Even if you are planning on OC'ing your hardware, still drop the extra 100 bucks, you won't be disappointed.

600W is more than enough. 550W would suffice

a SSD is just another hard drive only it can get read speeds of 300-500MB's second. I have a 128GB M4 SSD and my computer boots in under 14 seconds.

it will decrease your loading/boot times by amazing amounts. You can expect to boot windows in less than 20 seconds. Games that have loading screens basically no longer have them.

7200RPM HDD takes like what almost a full minute to boot and load windows. You shave almost 40+ seconds off that. Rough estimate. Like i said for me a cold boot takes 14 seconds.

I no longer see loading screens. So games like WoW, load in 2-3 seconds and i'm in the dungeon before everyone. Switching levels in L4D2 takes a few seconds as well and im waiting for others to load.
