the XFX 750w is a great unit and they are priced really well

Your case is your opinion, find one you like and just see if it will have cable management and such. just look around here and see if you find a case you like

as far as coolers go, the D14 is the best probably. the U12 will also be really good and its cheaper, so i would go with that. coolers are also kinda your preference. most high end coolers are within a couple degrees of each other, just find one you like the best and has the best price for what you need

IntelConvert,

Thanks a lot for your input, I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out!

Changed the power supply to the XFX Core Edition Pro for $145, not sure what the difference is between the black edition beside the colour. I decided to spend the extra $20 and get the Noctua D14 as it seems to be the best on the Noctua list.

As far as a case goes, I'm leaning towards the HAF-X but I may settle for the CM690II Advanced. Have a couple of days to think it over.

Thanks again

the XFX core editions are great PSUs. the Black Edition is a little better in terms of voltage regulation and efficiency but the Core edition is still really, really good.

if you want to overclock, a good cooler is very important. you will kick yourself if you dont get the good cooler now cause you will end up buying it later when you want to OC more or just drop your temps/

the HAF cases are good cases, just get what you like and what fits in the budget. the 690 II is a good case too. i like mine a lot
