I would choose a different PSU. The modular versions of the Corsair "CX" use all-Japanese capacitors, but the non-modular ones do not; they have some inferior Samxon capacitors that don't like heat and are known for early failure (their "GF" line). Fine in a light-duty office build, I would not put one in a gamer.
Either get a modular CX, or something built by Seasonic.
