Hello and Welcome to G2G!!!

That build looks good except for the Mobo. If you are going to be overclocking I would suggest a better Mobo. Possibly a better brand. I have never heard of biostar. Those case fans are very expensive, I would go for some other cheap ones. I'm guessing you already have a case, or did you just forget :whistling:.

EDIT: Nice this is my 500th post!! By the way can you tell us your price so maybe we can dig around and maybe find something better.

Double Edit: I think THIS would be a better Mobo or even THIS one.

Those fans, move ALOT of air I'll give you that, but come at the price of being very loud, I have to agree with SOORENA, you can find case fans for as little as 4$ each.
I'd recommend getting 1 hard drive instead of 2, unless you are planning on mirror on drive onto the other.

K..... I am planning on using that drive as a backup
also, I don't care about sound. I want it to be cool. I have had cheap fans go out before, so I went with these

I think this is a better design, you won't need to worry about additional fans if you buy this case. While I cannot say anything about the other case you mentioned the one I'm recommending below is the case my computer runs in, I'm very satisfied with my results.

It will, which is why I suggested it. :whistling: This way you won't need to buy any additional fans as well.
