Moneybagman you have done some serious shopping. Very good choices. I'm also a Corsair fan. I do believe a Corsair H100 should fit in that case with ease. It will also free up the space on and around the motherboard.

Corsair Hydro Series CPU Coolers

If you do want or need extra fans I would recommend Noctua. Your 650d 200mm case fans should be very quiet and move air well. I have found that the Corsair 120/140 fans are a bit loud. The 120 fans with the cooler are also loud. Better than the older Corsair fans but not as good as the Noctua fans. A SSD would be very nice with your system.
Nice job on your homework and selection of hardware.

Thanks! I did put days worth of research into this build, but I cannot take all the credit. As you can see, there were many helpful people who were willing to take their time to help me out, and for that, I thank you!

Note I did not mention any purchase of a HDD or a SSD in my list if items, this is because I already own a 256GB SSD, and a 1TB External HDD. I also have a 500GB HDD, but it is in need of reformatting. Once I accomplish that, it will be added to the build :3

The final piece arrived today, I will have to clean off my desk before I start assembeling the build, but it will be well worth it!

Here is a quick pic of everything that is going in the computer

Very nice stuff you got there Moneybagman, the GPU you got is real nice, I have the exact same one. It runs games really nicely.

Good luck with the build, I am sure you will be real happy with it.

Good luck on the new build moneybagman having built a previous generation Sabertooth/Intel rig myself for the first time you have chosen top notch components and you will be amazed that your new rig is so much faster & responsive than anything you have owned before.

Random BSOD on new build, Any ideas?
Hi, I've recently built a a computer for my sister out of spare parts. Every couple of hours it just seams to BSOD. I'm not the most skilled pc builder as I'm only 14. At first it just freezes but then it just goes to the blue screen. If any one has any suggestions to why it BSOD's or how I can...
