Welcome to the forums

By 1100-1200€ for the case only, I assume you mean for the PC without peripherals, not just for a case xD

What you have listed seems good, personally I'd get a PSU from a company with more reputation for making PSUs like Corsair, but that's just me being biased. The power you've gone for will be more than enough though, and would probably even handle SLI if you wanted later on.

The MoBo and CPU you've picked should be decent for overclocking, but with the 120mm radiator on the H55 and the hot Haswell CPUs, you might need the fans on quite high speed, so I'd recommend the H100 if it's within budget to allow you to have the fans quieter.

I'd definitely agree with your choice to get a large HDD as well as an SSD, it makes important things like your OS run much faster, as well as offering a lot of storage, so it's the best of both worlds.

Depending on budget you could get very reliable PSUs from Corsair, or Seasonic, among others, which I don't know off the top of my head I'm afraid.

I only know anything about Corsair naming codes.

They have several series of PSUs:

AXi series are the best, they are fully modular, compatible with Corsair Link software, and available in a range of power 760W, 860W, and 1200W.
AX are the predecessors, but are basically identical. They are not compatible with Corsair Link, and if you don't intend on using this, I'd sooner base my decision of which to get on the colour scheme (AXi is red, AX is yellowy gold). AX and AXis are the highest efficiency series in general.

HX are semi modular I believe, and have slightly lower efficiency.

TX are semi modular if they have M in the name, and non modular otherwise, and are less efficient still.

There are several more series, but you can find out all about them here

As far as I know, the XFX units are rebrands from Seasonic which are known as pretty much the most reliable on the market. Not too sure about their warranty though, so that might be a good reason to buy a Corsair unit.

Honestly, I think you are overspending a bit on some things (like the motherboard). You might be better off buying a slightly cheaper one and then bump your cooling up to an H80i or even H100i. You can also get better cases for the money than the ones you've mentioned.

What currency is your budget in? Pounds? I'm sure some people here could play around with components and recommend a full build based on your needs.

I heard that same thing about XFX. I have doubts about Mobo, that is why i am opting towards Killer which is 60e cheaper than Hero. Money is Euros and i live in Slovenia.

So I had a look and I came up with this. It might be slightly out of your budget but it's what I would do. It should be really silent, overclock well and even look pretty and colour co-ordinated:

- Fractal Design Arc Midi R2
- H100i/H80i (Depends on budget, take the H100i if you can)
- Core i5 4670k
- MSI Z87-G45 Gaming
- 2x4GB G.Skill Sniper 1866MHz (CL 9, 1.5v)
- MSI GTX 770 Twin Frozr Gaming 2GB
- Samsung 840 Evo 120GB SSD
- WD Caviar Blue 1Tb (7200 RPM, 64mb)
- Seasonic M12II 620 Watt or Corsair CX600m

On the site where I did this I ended on €1192,- total, although prices might be slightly different in your country. A decent 600 Watt PSU is plenty for that system, but it will not allow you to go SLI in the future even though the motherboard does support it.
