Hi everyone :) ,

So i've had some help of some of you guys already and i really want to thank you for that.
With your help i made it to this build : http://pcpartpicker.com/user/itzmilo/saved/BmQhP6
If anyone has any last suggestions, ill be glad to hear them. (btw im not planning on overclocking but i have the mobo and the cpu so, I might think about it in the future.)
Thank you again for helping me.

CPU Cooler - Just add one now since you are debating on overclocking in the future.
MEM - The RipJaws below are cheaper and have the same specs.
PSU - The XFX 550w below is cheaper and of the same high quality as Seasonic.

Enjoy that rig!

No need for thermal paste. The setup in the 212 EVO will be more than fine. If you want to pull some AS5, then that is fine and all. ...just not needed.
