I'd do something like http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gaz97xud3hbk for the motherboard, instead of that one, it's overpriced and older.

I wasn't sure if he was thinking green and white, or green and black, or green and white AND black. Hey I just recommended that motherboard to someone else, weird.

Z97 over Z87; don't need to update mobo bios just to get it to work with Haswell, also newer. Board is white/black

212 EVO is optional; CPU is unlocked and you may want to OC down the line

If i do overclock later should i get the 212 EVO or the corsair h100i

depends. If you want to overclock it real hard or just like temps to be real low then go with liquid cooling, otherwise the 212 EVO will serve well enough
