    Looking at the motherboard specs, I'd say you were good to go.

    Like Clifford said, the memory is fine. As for the CPU cooler, I personally like CM to Enermax. If I were you, I would go with the Hyper 212 Evo.

    Nice, thanks for the answers. The Hyper 212 Evo does look more interesting, but it says its for LGA 1366/1155 sockets, but I have an LGA 1156. Will it still work?

    EDIT: ahh nevermind, I just read it works with LGA 1156 too. Thanks guys!

    Deliveries took a while and been busy sorting out stuff for uni + work, but finally finished my built topping it off with a 1TB HDD last week :) Works like a charm and so much quicker comparing to my old system!

    Memory is fine now, but becuase these are 1.35V ram sticks, I had to boot up with only 1 ram stick, change BIOS to XMP and then reboot with both ram sticks installed. Otherwise, I was getting no POST beep and no display.

    The CM Hyper 212 Evo works nicely and keeps my CPU ~30*C idle and 55*C stress (LinX program), which is perfect :D

    It also turned out that I had to buy a new chassis, as my old one would have given me issues with motherboard installation + cable management, so I got the Corsair Carbide 300R.

    Thank you for your input.. and here's a cheeky look into my new system :D
