Windows 7: These new parts compatible?

These new parts compatible?

So I am going to be upgrading my system really soon
Already upgraded the GPU and the PSU,

I would love some of your expert advice on my pickings

New specs
CPU= i7 4790K
Motherboard= Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming 7 motherboard

I would also like to ask is the h90 a good cooler for the i7 I have picked?

And will this Case Zalman Z11 Plus Midi Tower Gaming Case
work with the Corsair h90 CPU cooler?

I picked out that case as it has 140mm support but on the specs it says = 120mm/140mm Fan Vent just making sure that it will fit

thanks for reading my post

Not so sure the cpu cooler will fit anywhere but the front of the case :/
It's a 140mm and all you have is 120mm fans on the case,
Being the rear I guess is the most likely place for the cpu cooler but these radiators like to be intakes not exhausts but several people have used them as exhausts without issue
I prefer as a intake which would put the rad at the front of the case
The case does look wide enough on the front for a 140mm fan on it but I don't see on Newegg where it states there's enough room ? blue fan is 120mm and blue led,

But the top is the most common location for a radiator,

Attachment 367863

So it would seem this cpu cooler would fit in 3 locations being it has 120mm fans

I have no idea where the 2-80mm fans are located on the case :/

Hi thanks for the reply, was also asking on Overclockers fourms, and decided to change case and cooler, I am going to go with a H80i and another Case, just for price and fitting, thanks for the detailed reply, I am going to keep my options open in the next few weeks :)

If you get a new case these would be better for the cpu your buying,
A 120mmx 240mm
Corsair Hydro Series? H100i GTX Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm -
I have this one mounted on the front of my case which is a Corsair 450D mid tower,
The 120mmx240mm would fit best on the top of the 450D
Or 140mmx280mm on the front I did have to remove most of the extra hdd trays though I didn't need them anyway
