    First off, what is this build going to be for? Gaming?

    If so:
    Do you need the Extreme6 for a motherboard? You can get the Pro4, or Extreme4... Will save you money.

    Why the i5-2500k, the i5-3570k is the same price as the 2500k . If you plan on Overclocking you will need a better cooler for the 3570k though.

    Personally I would go with Corsair (gold), or seasonic (gold) for the PSU, but I know nothing about the Rosewill one you selected.

    Why the i5-2500k, the i5-3570k is the same price and the 2500k and it current generation. If you plan on Overclocking you will need a better cooler for the 3570k though.

    Yeah mostly for gaming. All the parts came out to 479$,(wanted it under 500). I went with the extreme6 because the Ram came free with it. and Opps i meant to put Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K . Thanks

    Guess the board is quite decent if you ever happen to OC so unless the price is way over extreme4 / pros etc. go for it.

    Ok you must be looking at newegg, I missed the free ram.

    It's not much of a savings but take a look at:
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233186
    MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157293

    But otherwise yeah the Mobo you have is fine with the RAM

    It was $160, with 40$ free ram, wasnt a huge price difference.

    Hey im quite paranoid whether or not the Corsair H80i Cooler will fit in my case, and since you and i have the same exact case; how well does it fit? will i have any troubles?
