Hey guys,

What do you all think to the parts i have selected for my first gaming build?

I am still looking for advice on a CPU cooler though and would be appreciated.

Thanks

Jack

Sycthe Fuma for the cooler.

Everything else looks fine.

May I ask why the Scythe Fuma?

It reportedly is capable of getting overclocks on par with or better than AIO coolers and is less than half the cost.
