I don't know what the stock like in HK, you would have to look around for 2-Slot aftermarket coolers, and not the reference design.

Oh really? All my friends thinks HK is so good and cool, they all moved back and working there.
I understand where you are coming from with the dual slot idea. But we convinced him not to get a sli /cf rig so why would he do it in the future. When he can get a card that is not reference and have much better cooling then the reference cards. (Asus/msi).

Here are the charts of the m4 vs 3

They are very neck and neck. But I would still go with the m4

Looks good. If you go with a d14 you may have some problems with that vengeance ram fitting. I'd switch it to gskill. I'd also get at least an 80gig ssd, preferably 120gig. That way you don't have to worry as much about filling it.

Hey guys, I just got the parts today and finished building it. I made some major upgrades because I got a job, so I decided to dig into my savings a little. OC'd to 4.5GHz 1.25v, been stable on Prime95 for 6+ hrs!
