You could go with watercooling? Isnt that expensive and alot more effective than air cooling.

As for your next question, I have no idea xD

go with the H50, just be sure you have fans to move some air over your MB and memory.

Who knows. Probably a long time. Right now the only real games that will use a quad are bfbc2, gta 4, and flight simulator x.

Yeah I think for cases go with haf922....its on sale on newegg right now...cheapest I ever saw it.
And wouldn't the AMD 965 suffice....don't think there's a big difference

Why 6GB of RAM? 3 sticks won't get you dual channel, and AMD doesn't have triple channel.
