Gathering the components for a new build to replace my Q9300 system.

CPU: 4770k
GPU: GTX 760 Gigabyte windforce (probably add a second one later down the road)
RAM: 8 Gigs of G skill Sniper 2133
PSU: Evga Supernova 650W 80+ Gold
SSD: Corsair Neutron 256GB (maybe Mushkin 480GB)
HDD: Seagate 2TB 7200 Barracuda
Case: Undecided, mid ATX

Any suggestions on a motherboard? Looking to spend about $200 give or take. All the specs are so similar it's hard to differentiate.

Also, I'm debating between the Corsair H80i and Cool Master 212 Evo. I know these are very different price & performance points but here's my debate. The 4770k runs hot, so I lean towards the H80i especially since I am going to utilize that K on the end some. But, most of these don't overclock well, so more than likely I'll be able to push it just fine with the Evo using push/pull and take that $50 and apply it somewhere else.

Much appreciated,

Q1

The 212 EVO will be good. As for sa motherboard, if it fits your budget an ASUS Z87 - Pro is good. I am using air cooling and have my 4770k OC'd to 4.6 Ghz and temps are not a problem and I only have a one fan option on the CPU with the Gelid Tranquillo. I can turn the Heat sink and fan so it will push ot the other way to pull.

one of my friends mentioned lately the new biostar products for socket 1150 like the Hi Fi Z87X. So far its not yet available but maybe worth to wait for?
