Looks good. But I personally don't know much about that ram and have not heard much either. That board can be iffy with some value rams, I'd get a pair from a trusted company. Pick up some OCZ or Corsair.

Looks good. Nubius has Patriot memory (faster than yours) and it overclocks nicely.

Remember you only need a blob of thermal compound the size of a grain of rice. put it ontop on the core, and let the weight of the heatsink spread it.

Nice build, and enjoy!
