Hi, everyone. I am new member to the site and I would like some opinions on my new Gaming PC Build.
http://pcpartpicker.com/b/W3bj4D
My budget is about 1400,00 Euro but I would like to lower the price if possible.
Any suggestions?
Thank you all.

Drop the processor to a i5-4690K. You won't lose much (if any) gaming performance. I'd consider getting a cheaper motherboard. You start buying "nice-to-have" features that most people never use when you go past about $120-$150. And you might want to get RAM that isn't so tall, as the CM 212 needs some clearance over the RAM slots.

Other than that looks good.

You mean that with these RAM, the CM 212 won't fit?
If not, then the Corsair Vengeance will be OK? I hadn't
thought of the height... I will think about the i5 CPU.
Thanks for the other suggestions.

The CM 212 is a huge heatsink, so as long as the RAM isn't any higher than "naked" RAM, you should be fine. Or low profile RAM, that works as well.
