Building a pc - NEED HELP

Hey I have one question(or more, I dont know). Will this components be compatible if not recommend me something else, it cant be costing more than the price I type! This is what I was thinking to build! One more question- can you recommend me a not to expensive cooling fan (for processor) which I can OverClock a little bit with!? Please the fan must be from AMAZON!

Here are the specs:
Chassis: Cooler Master HAF ATX Mid Tower Case 922 - 89$

Motherboard: Asus P9X79 DELUXE Intel X79 So.2011 Quad Channel DDR3 ATX Retail - 380

Processor: Intel Core i7 3820 4x 3.60GHz So.2011 WOF 310$

GPU: 3072MB PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 430$

RAM: Corsair 16GB XMS3 (2x 8GB) DDR3 1600Mhz - 110$

PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 -105$

Optical Drive: Asus 24xDVD-RW Serial ATA Internal OEM Drive 22$

Total: 1448$

If you don't need a case quite that big, I can't recommend the HAF912 enough....plus it's cheaper.

Cooler Master also makes a Hyper 212 Evo, I think, that should allow you plenty of OC'ing headroom. I have two of the Hyper 212+ models, and they are quiet and perform very well....and are very cheap.

Samsung optical drives work very well and are just as cheap. I'm not a big Asus guy, so maybe that's just an opinion.

I don't see any hard drives listed. Did you forget or do you already have hard drives?

Looks like you have a relatively high budget. I'd certainly get an SSD for the operating system and programs and a standard HDD for data. SSD: Intel or Samsung; HDD: Western Digital or Samsung.

You likely won't need 16 GB of RAM, but you may have an unusual circumstance requiring that much?

Is there a particular reason you chose that motherboard?? Do you need 8 RAM slots?

What you have chosen looks pretty good, excluding hard drives.

Post a link to the Amazon site from which you will purchase.

The Coolermaster Hyper 212 that Deacon mentioned is a good choice.

I'd definitely get an SSD.

Post a link to the site from which you will buy.

How many hard drives will you need?

If the site is not in English, I can't help much.
