If this was built more recently, you should have done these things: 1. Gotten a 770 for near the same price. 2. Gotten a Samsung 840 (Pro) SSD. 3. Gotten a better motherboard, such as the UD3H or P8Z77-LK.

I'm not going to tell you that you should have gotten Haswell because there are very few advantages for hardcore gaming or overclocking, and the Z87 motherboards are like $20-$30 more than Z77 and aren't much better for general gaming purposes.

Yea it does in the picture, i fixed it a bit later. It's a bit hard to hide it all because the PSU isn't modular.

Awesome! Pretty much what we are building. Same MoBo CPU and almost same Video card. Can't wait for my parts to arrive next week!

Great build, it would be better if the graphics were upgraded to a 770, which is 23 dollars more, but more powerful than a GTX 680.

Right Now your RAM is like this:

XXOO where X is RAM and O is an empty slot.

To make it run in dual channel you should position it like this.:

XOXO

And this, ladies and gents, is why you buy a modular PSU.

What's the thermal compound for? Sorry, I'm a newb at this.

It acts as a base between the cooler and the CPU so the metal doesnt melt together or make it EXTREMELY hot. It also acts as a help for cooling.
