Why? It's been superseded by the h110 and the h100i. Also big air is more cost effective. The old silence argument is balls as the h100 when pushed hard is as noisy as any air cooler. Also he chooses a case dedicated to air cooling HAF = High Air Flow me reading like a retard you mean he has one already

There is nothing wrong with buying Ivy Bridge. For him, he would be better off buying an i5 Haswell chip non-k if he doesn't plan on OCing.

There is nothing wrong with Ivybridge other than Haswell has replaced it and costs only a fraction more. When urging him to buy ivybridge don't forget to tell him that socket 1155 is now dead so there are no upgrades for that motherboard in future, where as Haswell on the new socket 1150 has a future (and costs only marginally more).

Without an SSD I'd try going for the fastest hard drive possible. WD Caviar Black is one of those without breaking the bank (Velociraptor is crazy expensive). Blue is kind of the the middle ground between performance and power consumption while Green is power efficient but slow as dirt. If you do want an SSD you have lots of choices - one with about 120GB of storage should be enough. Windows takes up about 20GB and the drive's actual capacity is about 90% of its nominal capacity so choose accordingly.

About the IB vs Haswell thing...the general idea is that if you already own a Sandy/Ivy system don't bother with Haswell, however if you're building from scratch there is no reason to not get the lastest tech possible.

Here's a solid gaming build it's overbudget by $50 but that could be trimmed down if needed (cheaper SSD, cheaper RAM)

That's current and should tear up anything you want it too. You could get better value for money using an AMD GPU though

To save some more on that build, he could just get a less performing SSD with the same great reliablity. Like the Crucial M4

For your purposes, a simple Crucial M4 SSD or Kingston HyperX 3K models.

For just gaming and OCing, i5 3570k. For non-OC, any variant non-k i5 CPU. For video rendering, etc. i7 3770K.

From what I'm reading, I may have jumped the gun on the Z77 Mobo and PSU, and can always return it...but that's some hassle ha! But, if it is really worth dealing with, and waiting a little bit longer I will definitely do it!
