  1. Yep everything in this build is compatible!
  2. Best answer
    I'm not a big fan of Cooler Master power supplies. Although, everything is compatible, I would suggest a better case as Rosewill does not have the best reputation for cases.

    I'd go with this for your heatsink: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835709018

    Phantek has some great fans and this should create better airflow for you. If you want , consider going with a single rad water cooler, IE Corsair H80 or something.
  3. Here is the system you built with cheaper prices. Although if you are going with one newegg then you could always modify it to be that way.

    Yes it is all compatible although I don't have time right now to modify your MOBA and CPU to better fit this generation. Although if you wanted to stick with what you currently have, you have a great machine!

    Also Microcenter is in-store pickup most of the time so you can change your processor if you need to. Newegg has a nice combo discount on it.

    Best of luck.

    The reason for that is when I built my first computer and was looking into grabbing a full tower; there were many reviews on crappy cases. I have a Cooler Master HAF932 at the moment. I love mine without a doubt, there are just some brands of certain things I would not buy. I love Corsair, Antec, Cooler Maser, and Lian Li cases. Also with the power supply, I've gone with PC Power and Cooling and it turned out bad. They were a unknown brand at my time of purchase. Fan stopped working anywhere in the last 2 years. I currently just bought a TX850M for my new build I just did. Seasonic I heard is ok as well. Just make sure it is a Single rail and you should be fine.
