So I've chosen my mobo, do you think it's the right choice?

Very Good pick. But i think you might be able to find a WD Black 1tb for not much more if you do a little search.
Also i might go with a 700-750w power supply just because of the cpu you have and assuming you are going to overclock especially with that motherboard + the GFX and overtime that wattage drops, i mean yeah its a corsair but still.

Thank you :)

As I keep researching I realize that things I'm used to being slow are caused more probably from ram and the HDD... not so much the CPU... but right now I do see a lot of times my CPU being maxed out so I kind of just want the best I can get right now.. looking at benchmarks etc I'm impressed it's similar to a CPU that's way more expensive.
8 virtual cores is pretty neat too..

I won't be able to fit the 212 but I'm thinking the hyper N520

if for some reason the 212 evo doesn't fit, go with the 212 + which i know fits, as does the V8. why don't you think the 212 evo will not fit? but beyond that, great build, especially love the ssd choice
