    Hmm you might want to switch your RAM to low profile sticks as that Cooler will most likely cover the first DIMM Slot (even though you are only getting 2 sticks which you can slot into the 2nd & 4th slots) you want to add more in future

    plus maybe pick up the Noctua D14 CPU cooler instead as that always gets mentioned in threads when people are looking for Coolers


    Just my 2 cents of course.

    I'm looking for opinions, and this is the list I have so far.

    We can exclude the HDD from that, as I'll just format that one in my existing PC.

    Should any components be changed?
    I would not go with a sleeve bearing CPU fan, go with a ball bearing fan, it will be quieter and last much longer!

    I'd drop the cpu cooler (unnecessary unless you overclock).

    swap the motherboard to this:

    change the HDD to this:

    http://www.amazon.com/WD-Blue-Deskto...tal+1+terabyte

    change the PSU to this: (you do not want to skimp here)


    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151096


    could save some money here:

    And while the 3770k might be a slight improvement over the 3570k in certain tasks, it isn't ~$120 better:
