  1. You're good man! All that stuff would work together fine, nice build there! :)
  2. Also can u state how you know it's compatible
  3. Best answer
    LGA1155 based CPU, the 3570K, works in a 1155 based motherboard, Z77 chipset on the board is perfect for overclocking & supports a lot of PCI-e 3.0 slots, the graphics card is PCI-e 3.0 + 2.0 backwards compatible, so it'll run, DDR3 1600 RAM works in the motherboard according to DIMM specs, any ATX mid tower case can hold an ATX board, the PSU is more than enough, and its power efficient & relatively modern, Windows 8 works with almost all current hardware, which you have, and if the hard drive is SATA based, it'll work with any board that has SATA ports on it, which yours does. Plus everyone knows a Hyper 212 Plus is the most common cooler for a 3570K.
  4. Nice summary there!
