The CX600 is overpriced for what you get. RoseWill greens are built equally well or better and cost less.

The rosewill challeneger in a combo with the 530W PSU works out to be a $45 case (free shipping) that comes with 3 fans, making it a better buy than the NZXT Source. (don't have to buy any fans for it).

The Micro ATX board you have selected, while CFX supporting, will pile the 2 cards right on top of eachother, which has been known to cause cooling problems for many cards. The boards I suggested have slots oriented such that you separate the GPUs buy a slots width, which allows for proper breathing/cooling.

Sorry man, I think you should try to cancel that order.
thanks for the info, but I had already used another promo code which gave me a bigger discount

I have worked with Rosewill before, corsair is just better

the Challenger case comes with LED fans, meaning I would have to buy new ones. See the OP

I have crossfired cards on a micro ATX board before, and it was a crappy MSI and I still had no cooling issues. that NZXT case has a side fan slot right where the cards would be... providing more than enough air.
