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.

Ok Thank you. Does that Cooler Master fan needs paste before putting it? and Is that also gonna fit in my MoBo?

It will come with pre-applied paste, but I remove it and use Arctic Silver 5, but all CPU cooler plates HAVE to have paste on them. It will fit very easily on your board, it has parts for all Intel LGA sockets to date and AMD sockets too.

I think it was mentioned to use 91% isopropyl alcohol to remove paste.

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
Arctic Silver, Inc. - Intel® Application Methods
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.
Thanks. The CPU comes with an cooler right and do I have to put filler in that?

I need to find RAM. Im thinking of this

Good choice on the ram.

And the GPU.

The Artic Silver link (post 36) shows how to apply the thermal paste for different CPUs. I use high purity isopropyl alcohol 99.7% Helmar ISO PRO and coffee filters make good lint free cleaners.

I've also read the Haswell CPUs run hot like mentioned above and have no idea how they behave when overclocked. I'd be monitoring the core temperatures when your system is up and running.

Round two of little upgrades I would consider a better CPU cooler of either air or sealed loop water. Just when assembling see if the cases opening in the back will allow for an easy swap of the mobo cpu back plate? If not then I strongly would consider the upgrade now.
