RAM & Motherboard
Hello, looking for advice on Motherboard & RAM
Currently looking at Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H ATX LGA1150 http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/giga...ard-gaz87xud4h & http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/cors...8gx3m2a2400c10
Any thoughts on better choices at similar prices, though I'm willing to go up to £300 for the pair?
CPU is Intel Core i5-4670K http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/inte...bx80646i54670k may overclock but not excessively, a cooler recommendation would also be very welcome.

The motherboard is a little expensive, but not excessively, and you do get quality and features for the money.
But 8 GB of memory for £115 is bonkers.
You're not going to really benefit from DDR3-2400, but if you do insist on such fast memory, you can still get it much, much cheaper. Here's a Kingston kit for around £70. Really though, DDR3-1866 or 2133 is going to be plenty fast. And then you're in the £50 neighborhood.
