No need to get a cpu cooler if it comes with the intel.

Chose the msi motherboard for future upgrades and you said that the last one was limited to its socket.

Will this all fit in my case?
The motherboard has 4 memory slots. It will hold four 4 GB sticks or two 8 GB sticks. It's not a big deal one way or the other. I don't understand why one is "easier" than the other.

It's a micro ATX motherboard that should fit in any micro ATX or standard ATX case.

There are dozens of socket 1151 motherboards. Why did you choose THAT motherboard?

I can put 3x8 gb if i wanted to but if i buy the 2x 4GB ill have to remove one 4GB therefore making it a waste.

No specific readon why i chose that motherboard just looked good and durable for the price. And its a ATX not micro ATX

Have you researched single channel memory versus dual channel?

What motherboards are in your price range from Asus, Gigabyte, or Asrock?

I believe you low-balled the ram just a tad mate 1866 is what the board uses you picked 1600 :/

Most cases I've seen come with fans.

It supports the three of these! Dont think it'll be a problem, also pcpartpicker comes with a compatibility mode to ensure all your parts work together.

The i5-6600k is tempting me but its 30 extra (50 including the cpu cooler), seen alot of reviews and benchmarks and overall to me the 6600k stands out. I dont even have an operating system yet (unless theirs a free way to get it)

What do you say?

Would the fan be any good at keeping the cpu cool if i overclock the cpu?

Hi,
If you are planning to oc with a k series cpu I would upgrade later to a Corsair H110i GT or which ever will fit in the case which I have not looked at.

As far as the ram is concerned most would use the max a board will use
If you settle for 1600 that's okay too it just isn't the most the board can handle
