1) Intel i7-3770k Processor
2) ASRock Z77 Extreme 4
3) Corsair AX650Watt 80+Gold
4) GTX 680 Direct CU ii TOP
5) Intel 520 series SSD
6) Vengeance Low Profile Ram 4x4gb DDR3 1866mhz Kit
8) Bitfenix Colossus Case

Before purchasing i gotta reconfirm,

1) Is this build totally bottleneck-free???
2) Any suggestions for CPU cooler?? I'm gonna overclock this CPU to maybe 4.2ghz[prefer air cooling only]

Have you listed your preferred games? What you are building may be overkill. Mostly what we do here in the forums is try to save you money by matching the proper system components.

Why overkill?

1) Yeah, its bottleneck free, but the 3770k isn't really necessary. An i5 3570k will be just as good for gaming, but if you will be video editing, then the 3770k is worth it.

2) Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, great CPU air cooler :) .

The PSU is basically top of the line. It is a good build, but you would be better off saving the money :)
