I would only change the hard drive as its a green which isn't good for a everyday system.. data drive sure.
Change the H70 out to a H80 as the H70 is a HUGE cooler that really doesn't benefit much and a pain to install.

Otherwise looks good.

That is a great build for running everything at stock, for an overclocked beast you have to step the motherboard/PSU up a little
board is a few $ less after rebate, and WAY better
Gigabyte Z68XP-UD4-B3 ATX LGA1155 Z68 DDR3 2PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2PCI SLI SATA3 USB3.0 Motherboard - Gigabyte - GA-Z68XP-UD4
And here is a solid PSU
XFX 550W PRO550W Core Edition Single Rail ATX 12V 44A 24PIN ATX Power Supply 80PLUS Bronze - XFX - P1550SXXB9
I'd put my money on that mobo/PSU over your selection for some solid overclocks, also cost less by NCIX's pricing, hope I helped.

Also, just saw the post above, and yes get a 7200RPM HDD or it will be super slow, those green drives are made for storage and back up's.

Thanks a lot,Im in Europe so my choices are very limited concerning the h70.There are not many places to buy components out here and the online shops are very shady to say at least....

P67 is fine for overclocking.. H67 is not..

green drives are 7200RPM... RPM has very little to do with drive speed these days... But the green drive is a data store and will slow your system considerably compared to a WD blue, black or most other main stream HDD's never mind SSD's.

If you can stretch to an SSD then get the green if not get a black

Corsair is a fine brand for PSU..


What retailer are you buying from.. Can suggest parts if we know whats available

Also the HXX coolers are expensive.. think about air if your budget is tight (might stretch to an SSD if you do)
Coolermaster 212+ is a solid cooler for very little money compared to the hydro's.
I would suggest going for something a little bigger than 500W though for an OC gaming rig... 550 - 650 would be prefereable for a single card set-up.. 750 for dual.

Agree. Is there an online site you are using to find your parts that you could post a link to?

This is the link,but its not in english...HGspot
click on the right side of the page on KOMPONENTE...everything is listed there....but bear in mind that half of the things are unavaliable.The hdd green will be used as a storage(mostly games.....),i have a 60GB SSD,and a 160GB HDD 7200rpm.If you have time to go too the site and recomend other parts then what i listed it would be apriciated...My budged is 8000kn which is aproxamitly 1454$...THANKS guys...
