Check that the RAM you have selected is compatible with the Mobo. Use the QVL list.

Your selected power supply. 700w.

The Cooler Master Extreme series has had pretty poor "professorial" reviews. Actual stated wattage has not be achieved.

This, "Manufacturer Response:Dear Valued Customer - We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Please make sure not to push the power supply over its limits of 500W. If they are powered and used beyond those limits, the power supply may fail. Please contact us via the Live Chat link below so we can troubleshoot the cause and rectify the situation under warranty. You don't need the original packaging to get it replaced by us. Respectfully - CMUSA Customer Support.

The rest of the system depends on a good quality PSU. When a PSU fails it can fry one or many of the other components.
Consider any of the following. The Corsair Gaming Series GS700 is the only one with extra long, fully sleeved cables.
