Gaming PC Advice For First Build Compatibility Check

Preferably UK prices links ect only. Hi, i'm building a mid to high end gaming PC and i just wondered if anyone could give me some advice on the parts i get. I have not ordered yet but will be soon and i just wanted a second opinion on my choices. I am also unsure about the compatibility so if someone could check everything's compatible.. I think everything's okay but not 100% sure as this will be the first computer i have ever built.

    Hi. First, Keep the 120Gb SSD. Drop the two adata ones and just get a 1TB Hdd for storage and back up. Cooling, you do not need water cooling. An air cooler will do just fine and save you some money and aggravation. This would be a good PSU :
  2. Okay, thank you but i was planning on over clocking to about 4.7GHZ which is why i had the water cooling also i need it to be as quiet as possible. Do you think normal fans and heat sinks extra will cover it?
