    Awesome build, more PSU then you need - but i'm assuming your trying to leave room for a 2nd one down the line. You'll want some kind of CPU cooler, the stock on the i7 3570k is a joke, you'd be better off with an i5 3570k and something better, then whats there.

    depending on what games you play camp green might be a better option.
    also no ssd nor aftermarket cooler for cpu seems weird on such a build.

    No SSD and no third party cooler instead of stupidly expensive motherboard and useless BD writer is bad choice.

    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    I would get the aftermarket cooler before I got the Blu ray burner.
