I personally give a nod to Cooler Master cases in general, more well know, decent support. I no nothing about Azza though.

The Storm Scout is a great case and I was considering buying one at one time. It is a bit larger than many mid=tower cases and has good cable management.

Please, though, no sir, it's Gary.

Cool, let us know how it goes. the HAF case are also very good, I personally don't like the side panel fans though, but that is all up to you. you have to build, maintain, and look at it.

Looks like you are well on your way. It's fun and I'm sure you will build a great PC at good value for money.
Just one thing to pay attention to is the thermal paste when fitting your CPU with an after market cooler. Arctic Silver is a good paste and the application instructions are here

Even if you don't use Arctic Silver, their guidelines are worthwhile.
Don't overdo the application of the paste. More can be worse.
Also, it's not Sir (appreciate the politeness) it's Michael.

I think you well like the haf922. Plenty of room for either a 120.1 or 120.2 AIO, lot of air moving thru the case. I have a 922 and a 932. You can get a windowed side panel if inclined, run with or without the side fan. I like the extra air from the side panel fan. I use Demicflex filters on both cases, positive pressure gives me a dust free computer. After 12 months of 24/7 I have less dust than 3 months running unfiltered.

I'm impressed with CM warranty, I started to get some noise from the top mounted 240 fan in my 922. One email to CM and I was sent a link to a rma form, filled it out and received a new replacement fan straight away. I wanted to different led color than the original, no problem, I was not even asked to return the defective fan. I think the defective fan can be saved with a clean and oil then mounted in a vertical position. The big fans mounted in a horizontal position wear out sooner from the blade weight.

This GPU:

IT has a very good cooler, better than the PNY and twice the GDDR5 (dedicated graphics RAM) .

Yes the CPU will come with a cooler, it's very handy to keep papers from blowing away. Even running without overclocks Haswell can get very hot, and it's very noisy, like a small jet turbine.

I recommend this one at least. I have it and installed 2 fans in push/pull configuration.
