It looks like a good list, except for the MSI graphics card, they have poor support. Personally I would get the same version GPU from ASUS or EVGA.
The system should be a good one, love the case choice too.

Hum looks fairly good to me but am no REAL expert - one thing though is keep this in mind before you use the SSD. SSD Alignment

Once you are up and running and don't mind losing some of the "bling" this

Definitely do not use the stock Intel cooler for overclocking! They are crap and the CPU will over heat...a lot. I don't know what they were thinking when they made them. The H80 should do very well.

Absolutely and what Briton says mate is right on the stock coolers are okfor idling but it sounds like you to want to do more than idle LOL!!

Oh by the way I went with the Intel LC but if my budget would have stretched the one you have planned is real cool - pun intended as well

The LC's are a real space saver and look neater in my mind anyway.

Let us know how you get on with the build, if you need any help or tips heaps of real genned up folks in here NBAP.
