Dont really want to OC my RAM (unless I get crazy performance boost?). Only my GPU and CPU.

asrock extreme 4 gen 3, but if your budgets tight then go for the asrock extreme 3 gen 3. the extreme 4 version has some extra goodies but if you can't afford it, it won't really affect your performance

what are you gonna be doing with your built thats the first question
If your Gaming Higher ram doesnt affect real world performance that much i can tell you
if your planning to Oc your CPu to 4.8-5.2ghz you should go for 1866 since it lessens the load on the CPU

That overclock will have more to do with the CPU itself being a really good one. I'd be surprised if 1 in 50 i5 can do 5ghz at around stock voltages.

As for the heatsink, fyi op, the mounting pattern for 1155 heatsinks is the same as 1156 so your corsair will be fine.

I can afford the Asrock Extreme 4 Gen 3, but too me it seems that for spending an extra $50 you are getting two extra SATA III ports and a few other little things. If its worth it, I will go for the Extreme 4 gen 3. The look of the Extreme 3 looks incredibly nice however.

Majority gaming, but maybe a little video editing for youtube.

Cheers for the information about the H50.

So I can't expect my 2500K to get 5ghz?
