What form of gaming? The 560 may be a bit overkill, depending on the usage.

Nice collection of parts! It will make a good, fast all round machine IMO. You should get a nice overclock out of it too

I wouldn't get the 2600k, save yourself a $100 because you wont use the hyper threading in game. Get the 2500k for gaming and music.

Wait, does music production take advantage of multi threading?

Yes it does, a lot of production software can be hugely demanding. I'd think 2600k would not be a bad idea

Can't find any flaws. I've not seen reviews of the Antec Kuhler, but I own the H50 and can attest that the sort of design works very well.

Edit: Still curious what games he's gonna be playing

Sorry, did a stealth edit! Not sure if music production takes advantage of multithreading, tbh I kinda think it would. Not sure though.

Now I'm sure! That's what I thought.
