    I'm building my first self-made gaming rig and want some feedback from the community to see how well my setup works together, weak links, "too strong" links (if there are any), and the overall quality of the parts I chose.

    Here's my setup:

    Processor: Intel i5-3570k
    Graphics Card: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 7850
    Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
    Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 64mb cache
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz
    Power Supply: Corsair Builder Series CX600
    Case: Zalman Z11 ATX Mid Tower
    Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
    Solid State Drive: Mushkin Chronos 120GB

    Any feedback and suggestions are GREATLY appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Looks like a very decent build to me :thumb: If you're planning on overclocking I'd have gone for a better cooler though as Ivy Bridge can get scorchingly hot.

    Another quick question. Will all of my components fit into the Zalman Z11?
