I build myself a gaming PC. It's amazing. All of the parts worked together quite well, but I advise that you choose low-profile memory instead. Heat spreaders look cool, but in the end, they just get in the way of things. My CPU cooler was extremely close to the RAM, as shown in one of the pictures. I overclocked the CPU to 4.5GHz, and the GPU to 1102MHz. I'm really happy with this build. Thank you, PCPartPicker!
Edit: guys, don't be afraid of my CPU temps. That was because I overclocked the CPU AND IntelBurnTest is designed to raise the temps that high. Essentially, no other program can possibly raise the temps past 80 degrees.
