First Build, How Does It Look

Here's the build, I'm trying to keep it within $1100 and a black/blue color scheme which I think will look really cool with the fans, the blue accent on the Vapor-X cooler, and the Blue BitFenix Alchemy cables I will be getting.

I think you should get the 6300 and use the extra $30 on a better cooler like the Corsair H100i. Besides that everything is solid. Have you consider getting a Hybrid HDD. You get better performance than a HDD without the price tag of an SSD. Maybe use the extra $30 on the Hybrid HDD. Hope this helps.

I might switch to the 6300 but I might do something else besides the H100i because a dual rad seems a little excessive since I don't plan on overclocking and I want it to be as quiet as possible. I have considered an SSHD but it seems like the cons outway the pros plus right now my laptop is running off a 5400rpm HDD and boot it boots in 20sec which is fine. I'll probably get a more reliable and higher wattage PSU.
