Hey guys!

I asked for some advice yesterday about my build on here and a few of you were SUPER helpful, and I changed a few parts thanks to some feedback. Now I'm just wanting to make sure everything's good to go! So does anyone have any criticism for this build, or should I order it soon?

Might want to try and fit in an aftermarket cooler. Even if you're not overclocking, less heat is always better. Even a cheap Hyper 212 Evo is only $25-$35 and would cool your system much better and it's much easier to add a cooler on when building then afterwards, especially if you have to remove the MB and everything to add in a back bracket, etc.

You are going to overclock right? PSU is a little overkill i think, a decent 650 watt will be enough.

That PSU is also $50 off if you look, and less than a 650W would cost, so why not get it.

So just get another fan? Alright, I was thinking about it. I think my case has 4 fans by default with 3 extra spots for them... So I should throw in another just for safety?

I might overclock, I'm not sure. And the Power Supply is because in the future I MAY add another graphics card, and it's also $50 off right now so it's about as expensive as the 650 watt ones right now :)

I wasn't talking about a fan, but about a CPU cooler.
Like this one

Gives way better cooling than the stock cooler.
