New PC Build

I just built a new PC for myself and I must say I'm pretty happy with it so far. More details and pics will come but here are the basic specs and reasoning:

CPU: Intel i5 4670k (I want to overclock and the i5 is the best performance for value CPU)
CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Hyper Tx3 Evo (I need an aftermarket cooler for overclocking and this seemed a good value for money cooler)
Motherboard: Asrock Pro 4 Z87 (Recommended by a friend- I like the value and overclocking capabilities)
GPU: Sapphire HD7950 Boost (Not just because I'm a miner ;) I got a great deal on this as it is discontinued)
Case: Silverstone RL-01 (In order to stay in budget I chose a cheapy case but one with a window. This has performed surpisingly well and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to someone else)
Storage: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue (a classic although my sata cable receptor broke and I had to buy a new one. I will hopefully receive a SSD for xmas *wink wink* and thus will move Windows onto it. )
RAM: 2x4GB G.Skill Ares (I wanted a higher clock than other ram so I chose this, I like the blue colouring too)

That's it for the moment. Tomorrow I might run some benchmarks on it and post here. I'm also considering starting to vlog about gaming/computers/cool stuff so stay tuned.
