Intel Core i5-3350P - 3.1GHz - Socket 1155
Seagate 1TB 3.5" SATA-600 7200rpm 64MB
Samsung 840 Series 120GB
ASRock H77M - Socket 1155 - Micro-ATX
Corsair 4GB DDR3 1600MHz UDIMM (2x4GB = 8GB)

It seems like a great configuration, I wouldn't change anything. The only item to improve would be the CPU cooler. You didn't mention one, so I am assuming you are using the stock one, which is loud and not efficient.

Go with a CoolerMaster Hyper 212. Those can be had for <$30, and are offer very good cooling performance.
No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards!
