i would see if the cooler dont collide whit the ram height.
mail either g-skills or cooler master or look at cooler master's spec on the cooler.
i dont have the cooler so i cant say for shure, but the rest looks good for me.

I ran a cool master V8 in an older rig and did not have a problem. At the time I was running corsair memory that did not have tall heat spreader. You may need to remove the upper heat spreader fins on the Trident X memory.

Looks like a nice build

Is this a gaming rig ? Why the FX 8350

Hi dj5436, meankeys is correct. The heat spreaders on the G.Skill Trident X series RAM is removable just for that purpose, so you can use a big CPU cooler. It should fit just fine if you remove the heat spreaders.

If you haven't already bought one, you might want to read some reviews on it first. then go and buy a corsair h110 for the same price. admittedly the coolermaster looks good with it's big ass V8 design and red leds, but an all in one cooler is going to be a lot more effective cooling solution for the same price and a lot less hassle fitting it. don't take my word, http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/cooler_master_v8_gts/5.htm

if you already have the cooler then this might help

I was going to go with the v8 just because how good it would look in the build I never have liked the all in 1 cpu water coolers and I am not in a position to do a full water cooling. it would be yoused for gaming but there is no way I am going with intel and the fx-8350 is the one I like from amd

FX-8350? THAT sad puppy? Be a man and use an FX-9590. Frankly it is the only AMD CPU that can compete with intel CPUs.

Actually the 9370 is a mere 10USD more. So I don't know what you mean by that. 9590 is about 100USD more, yes. But I'm sure you can afford a 9370.

Be a man and use a 9590? that's cute. OP stick with the 8350, clock it to 5GHz and enjoy lower temps and lower TDP hitting 5GHz, you won't be any less of a man using it, considering a 9590 is just a higher clocked 8350 with a stupidly high TDP.
