What you guys think of my build? I have always in mind the new pc i will build to last me 4-5 years. I want it to run everything. I know the gtx 570 will be bottleneck in some games at max details (BF4,BF3,crysis 3...etc) . I will upgrade vga next year.

Iam open to suggestions/changes. I want to build with the best possible componets for 1500 euros.

Mainly use for Gaming , some browsing and very little Photoshop work.
Budget? 1500 euro, tax and shipping incluted
i will buy from http://www.eshopcy.com.cy/PER_pc_config_desktop.phtml
Ill reuse GTX 570 for now
Overclocking? I dont have experience with overclock. I want a stable PC to last with no overheat problems. I might overclock in the future.
I play on 24''- 1080p
I plan to buy end of the month.
Dont recommend other brand than ASUS motherboard.
I will use windows 8 64bit

My list so far:
1. CASE - COOLERMASTER HAF X - 209 http://www.eshopcy.com.cy/show.phtml?id=PER.806244
2. Motherboard - ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO - 229 http://www.eshopcy.com.cy/show.phtml?id=PER.523125
2. CPU - Intel CORE I7-4770K 3.50GHZ - 359 http://www.eshopcy.com.cy/show.phtml?id=PER.558414
3. CPU Cooling - Please suggest me a good cpu cooler that will not overlap my ram.Even if i overclock in the future i want the cpu cooler to be up for the job (4.5GHz max)
4. RAM - KINGSTON 16GB DDR3 1600MHZ HYPERX BLACK -135 http://www.eshopcy.com.cy/show.phtml?id=PER.550425
5. HDD Primary - SAMSUNG W 840 PRO SSD 128GB - 144 http://www.eshopcy.com.cy/show.phtml?id=PER.306070
6. HDD Sec - WESTERN DIGITAL 2TB BLACK SA - 154 http://www.eshopcy.com.cy/show.phtml?id=PER.303658
7. Power Supply - CORSAIR HX SERIES HX650 - 148 http://www.eshopcy.com.cy/show.phtml?id=PER.640235
8. VGA - Gigabyte OVerclocked GTX 570 - already own,ill stick with it for now - 0 http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...ck-review.html

Total - 1498

Please suggest me a good ram for overclock and another one if i dont plan to overclock soon. (if it matters)

16 GB of RAM won't help in gaming at all. In fact, even 8 GB of RAM is slightly more than required.
My suggestion:

> change the ram to: http://www.eshopcy.com.cy/show.phtml?id=PER.549015
> For cpu cooler: try to find Noctua NH D14

Thanks for replying.

I chose the 16gb ram because of there price.Its cheap and will last in time. Isnt bad to have more in this case even if i will never use it right? :)

About the HSF. This is where my real problem is. My pc tech skills are not that great. I know how to install ram,vga,hdd and thats it. When it comes to cpu and HSF i wouldnt even go near it. The problem iam having with the noctua is that it overlaps all ram modules . And if my pc have problems and want to check the ram, i will have to remove the hsf in order to reach the ram modules. I dont want that.

Can you suggest a low profile Air cooling HSF that will not overlap the ram modules and will keep the temps low if i ever overclock the cpu to 4.2 GHZ?
I will be buying from this site only http://www.e-shop.gr/search_main.phtml? ... 1%D3%D4%C7

If the HSF you suggest is not there i can find it out of my country.

The Cooler Master Hyper 212 might be a better choice here then.

Does the Corsair h80i or h100i need maintenance? For a noob like me is it ideal to use them? Or i will have numerous problems?

Its the first time iam thinking to switch to liquid cooling.

Self contained units require no maintenance other than cleaning the radiator for dust. But I usually don't recommend them over air coolers because unless you're doing heavy overclocking, they have pretty meh performance/price ratio.
