First build need reassurance!

Hey guys, big black friday sale tomorrow and need confirmation that this build is all good.

Decided to go with the overclock option, I may not overclock straight away, however I plan to in the future. Firstly, is the CPU cooler fine for a modest overclock? I have heard good things of the evo and want to stay with air cooling for now.

Was going to go with the ASUS 1060 ROG Strix GPU, however its massive and the compatibility test said it will block cages for the drives, so put the Gigabyte in there. If i decide to go with the Asus will I have major trouble with assembly?

Anyway, cheers for taking a look, appreciate the feedback.

The evo has had its time, there are better options nowadays. All these are better performing PSUs listed from cheapest to most expencive:

  • Cryorig M9i

  • Cryorig H7

  • Scythe Fuma

For the same price you can get the Crucial Bx200 240gb. It performs faster than the uv400 (http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Kingston-SSDNow-UV400-240GB-vs-Crucial-BX200-240GB/m137815vs3626)
