Everything looks good (albeit somewhat vague), presuming that you're not overclocking. Between the motherboard's B75 chipset and the i3-3220 CPU, stock speed is all you're getting.

One more thing: Make sure that your ram is spec'd to run at 1.5 volts. Most Kingston sticks are designed for 1.65 volts, but Ivy Bridge systems use lower-voltage RAM than older-generation systems. As far as I'm aware, the only 2x4GB DDR3-1600 kit from Kingston that runs at 1.5 volts is model KHX1600C9D3P1K2/8G.

Thanks for the replies :)  and no I'm not over clocking. Newegg isn't good for me since I'm English, and yes I am building this myself :)
