So this is my first time building a computer, I have pretty much decided all the parts, they go like this:

OS: Microsoft windows 7 home premium 64 bit oem
Disc Drive: LiteOn iHAS124
HDD: Western Digital HD Caviar Blue 1TB
RAM: Corsair Vengeance - Hukommelse - 8 GB : 2 x 4 GB 2133 MHz ( PC3-17066 )
GPU: Asus Radeon hd 7870 (Maybe add a second in the future)
Case: Zalman Z11 plus
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k (OC to 4.2 or 4.0 )
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Exteme4 ATX
Powersuply: XFX PSU 850W ProSeries XXX EDITION
Aftermarket cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
SSD: 60GB OCZ Vertex 3 (For installing windows)

Well i think this just be a solid build but i am not sure about the ram, any ram experts or people who know about this, please tell me if this is the right/wrong speed or wrong manufactorer. Thanks in advance! :D

please check the ram voltage, should be 1,5V

any custom ram usually has 1,65v ort even 1,25v. avoid them

For example kingston says

1.5V & 1.65 V operating voltages enable stable overclocking

Designed to work with P55, H67, P67, Z68, H61 (AG), X79 and Z77 Intel chipsets; as well as A75, A87, A88, A89, A78 and E35 (Fusion) AMD chipsets

Why we need to avoid them? Intel says 1.5V memory is good +- 5% 1.5 +5% = 1.575V
I have used 1.5V +10% when overclocking. Never had any broblems.

I don't think i'll be oc'ing my ram since it's already 1833 G.skill sniper.
