That VS650 PSU is at the bottom line of Corsair line up. Hopefully nothing goes wrong with the build. I would consider upgrading it. Another one is the H97 motherboard that doesn't allow you to overclock. Other than those two +1

I agree with what you said about the PSU.

Another one is the H97 motherboard that doesn't allow you to overclock...

About the H97 MOBO, I know most MOBOs can overclock a processor. Depending what it is and able to do. The overclock may not be as much, comparing with a Z97 MOBO. Saying it does not allow to overclock is misunderstood when it can but again it may be minor between limited, hence why we recommend the Z97 for a better control to overclock for the i5 & i7 K processors. A G3258 could accomplish a bit more of an overclock with most lower end MOBOs, though varies.

to some extent I would agree that it can handle minor overclocking probably 400mhz at most(if lucky) but if you're going to get a unlock processor then might as well go for a Z motherboard. Overclocking with a H97 motherboard would also produce more heat compared to a Z97 motherboard since it's not made for overclocking.

How much heat? Are we talking about increased voltage? When most likely I don't see it going pass 1.210v for the processor. I overclocked quite a few low end MOBOs with minor overclocks before which I have not seen heat as an issue, yet. Since the voltage was not increased.
I only meant to what you said "does not allow overclock" when it can. I am not saying OP should not have bothered with a Z97 MOBO. That was my reason for saying why we recommend a Z97 MOBO for the i5 and i7 K processors.

The heat sink of the motherboard heats up. This is my experience when increasing base clock since I have a lock processor i7 4770, highest clock is 3.9ghz I can do it stable at 4.058 and the motherboard heat sink radiates heat this is why I only do it during winter.

PS. Also in my brother's case when he upgraded to i7 4790k, he already had a asus Z87 but the heat sink of the motherboard really gets hot I mean(touch it for 1 sec and it really burns) thats only at 4.6ghz thats why he upgraded to asus Z97.

thats pretty much the story of my mom's PC. Me and my bro upgrading. She has i5 4440, asus z87, 8gb ram, corsair case, corsair PSU, samsung 840 evo, 2tb(pretty much free from us)

Ah, the heatsinks of the MOBO. That makes more sense now. :)

...I can do it stable at 4.058 and the motherboard heat sink radiates heat this is why I only do it during winter.

Sorry, I probably am not understanding this: Is this the vCore? The voltage increased to the processor? Or is this just a clock increase to the processor?

I was wondering about this as well. The first version has two additional photos. Well for now.

Wouldn't you be better off buying a 2x 8gb kit? https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/patriot-memory-pv316g160c0k this one is cheaper and it looks better

Only thing i see is you could have probly if the mb would alow it you should get 2 8gb ram sticks for expansion later

Isnt that what he has. I can only see 2 ram sticks in there at slot 2 and 4. In the description he put 8 x 2gb but the MoBo cant even hold 8 sticks.

Most mother boards can hold up to I think 15 correct me if I'm wrong... I know I'm near the correct amount I mean they should cause somethings take more ram to work

The most I have seen in person is 8 ram slots. PCPP has 6 that have 16, but most of them come with 2 or 4 slots.

psu worries me, but everything else looks okay. Should have gone with a Z97 board though.
