Yes everything will work, but would change the psu tho.... never go on cheap quality psu. Would suggest Seasonic or Corsair psu. Also If u not planning to overclock then the k cpu and Z87 board is not needed and the stock cooler would work just fine. Unless u plan to overclock then keep everything, but change the psu.

Get a better quality PSU. Just had the very discussion with another forum member on the CX600. That is a budget PSU. Get something in the TX range or better or a Seasonic if possible.

You also do not need to OC at all with a 4670k. Even if you tried, the 212 cooler is not very good for the amount of heat a Haswell can put off.
