Hi. If you are going to use the Corsair H60. you would just as well off with air and the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. It is cheaper and as effective.

Try to get SSD, they help more than you can realize. I know they are pricey, but they will allow you to boot so much faster and load games a lot better which can help in BF4 for example, able to spawn before everyone else. Also, you didn't list the amount of RAM, you should go for 6-8 at the least with modern games requiring so much.

yes it does great for its price and can do OC very well ..
at your build , you lacking behind in a choice of good GPU also if you dont really need air cooling this build is one great choice:
->CPU - as not all games benifit from 8 cores but modern games might get so it is a good future proof.
also it has a good Overclocking potential and can compete expensive Intels.
->The CPU Cooler , Case give good room for cooling and making overclock further possible.
PSU is all you need for Overclock and a Crossfire setup for future.
Motherboard is also a well designed for overclocking and its other unique features.
->8GB of ram all you need for this budget and more than enough for gaming.
Also the GPU is very powerfull to maximize game settings at 1080p for any modern game with great FPS making average or mode of 60~
