My first topic here so go easy on me =) Quickly setup a comp for my friend, I haven't looked up what parts are good and what not for ages, so I'm not that sure about this build. Why I did pick these parts is that these are instantly available at our local retailer, verkkokauppa.com

The price range is around 1000€ (those parts are at 975€ at our local retailer), it doesn't matter if it goes slightly over that. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Salakelmi/saved/BmnNnQ

You might want to go for a case that takes advantage of your board's USB 3.0 header.

As Misciner said that case does not have USB3 ports on the front, I'd look at cases that do, the Corsair 200r is good at a similar price.

I wouldn't buy that memory, 1.65v is overclocking which you should not require for 1600, it is poor quality. I would recommend sticking at 1.5v, G.Skill or Corsair are both very good, 1866 gives a performance boost. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f314900cl9d8gbxl or http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-memory-cmz8gx3m2a1866c9b

I'd also add an after market CPU cooler, the Cooler Master EVO is very good at a reasonable cost http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr2

Following your advice about the voltage, I went with this memory: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/kingston-memory-hx318c10fbk28 because again, available at our retailer. Changed the case and added the Cooler Master EVO also.
