May you answer the sticky questions as a few are confused about the purpose of this computer: NOTICE - PC builders, when asking for input on YOUR projects Please Tell

I've highlighted the things that seem out of place or incompatible, which happens to be about everything
  • As mentioned, a non-K processor with a liquid cooler is out of place unless you're looking for a very quiet computer, but even then most air coolers with a 120mm fan will do fine on an Ivy Bridge
  • An EATX motherboard will not fit in a Coolermaster Elite 431 unless you cut up the case
  • If you can, pay the extra money ~$5ish for the DDR3-1600 RAM - AnandTech - Sandy Bridge Memory Scaling: Choosing the Best DDR3
  • The power supply is overkill for the 7870 video card
  • As mentioned, get an SSD or switch to a higher tier hard drive if for some reason you don't want an SSD (e.g. 2TB Caviar Black or Seagate Barracuda XT)
