I have no idea what to do for a CPU cooler. As for the case, im open to as well (I'm not 100% sold on the 240 yet.)

Edit: re-thinking most of my build now. Removed case/motherboard and going with reuglar ATX. Will update with another build.


Update 1: So I revamped quite abit. Any red flags before I hit that buy button?

As for the CPU cooler you can go with the Noctua NH-U12S or the NH-D15S.

Both the micro2 and fatal1ty3.1 boards support 3200 gskills and I've read tridentz oc well with x99. I've read the tridentz support up to a 1.5v xmp so you could OC the 3200c16 down to 14 cas. The 4x4 is only $125. The 5820k is on sale at micro center as well as the 950 pro. This change is only $50 over your first update. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qczRQ7

Personally I would wait on a 2.5" ssd since their price per gigabyte is dropping this year from the m.2's. 6-12 months from now you could upgrade into a 1TB 2.5" ssd for a lot less to cover the premium on getting the m.2 now.

Why the ATX case though?

Thanks for the suggestions =) . I don't live anywhere near a microcenter though so I couldn't get the 5820k deal. As for the case, it's still up in the air. I looked into the 350d and it seems the airflow isn't as good as the 450d.
I thought I might benefit from the extra room over the Air 240.

I also need to go with a different CPU cooler with the air 240.

He is saying the AMD 390/390x is a better video card for the money.

Here is my build.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/w9KLt6

The ram is actually faster (lower latency), I dropped the PSU from 750 down to 650, and I upgraded the GPU from a 970 to a 390x.

That PSU isnt nearly as good as the G2.
