just wanted to state that the 1866 ram wont do anything, as intel processors can oly handle ram clocked at 1600 due to a limitation in their ram controller.

Nice! I'm looking to do a similar build soon (same CPU, GPU, PSU and fans, but in the 450D instead) and those headphones are incredible!

Typically people ask for opinions/help BEFORE purchasing, in case there are problems, but you did a great job with parts selection so you should be fine. I would have told you to get a mobo by ASUS or Gigabyte instead of MSI but you might have good luck.

Here's my next build (if you're curious): http://pcpartpicker.com/user/sharkbyte5150/saved/nTrG3C

Thanks! I know this sounds a bit ridiculous but I was going to get one but it didn't match my scheme. :/

You're kidding right? You've come to the mecca for PC's built according to desired colored schemes!
The ASUS ROG series would have worked, but a bit more pricey.

Yeah, I know I'm not that smart. But hey, it looks cool. Yeah, I was gonna get a Maximus but those are waaaaay expensive.

I meant you've come to the right place for choosing parts based on color LOL
