Build looks all good. I'm assuming you are using the Hard Drives and/or Solid State Drives from your current build?

You dont need a 650 watt PSU unless you are going to have two video cards.
And that CPU cooler you picked is way overpriced overhyped and its also loud, you can get air coolers are that better cheaper and more quiet.

Already have the PSU from my previous build along with the cooler. Should of mentioned that in the original post. Will probably switch it out for something else or just go to water cooling later. But for now it will work.thumb.gif

Go find a MicroCenter in Ohio... that'll save you a good chunk of change... I think the 6700k's are usually on sale for $290...
