1.) Is there enough space for both the RAM and CPU cooler to fit?
2.) I am not going with water cooling, will there be heat issues?
3.) If anyone can link me or tell me what kind of FPS I will be reaching on Ultra with this build on BF3, I would appreciate it.
I picked out these parts because I will be gaming on BF3/4 on Ultra settings, (trying to achieve as high of a FPS rate as possible.) I will also be doing video editing on sony vegas 12 and recording my gameplay.
I am aware that this is overkill and pretty expensive, I have earned all the money that will be going into this PC and a great gaming experience with fast video editing is what I need!
2. Based upon their own advertising, it's 18db louder (each 3dba = doubling of sound pressure) or 2^6th power or 64 times louder than the phanteks.

However, this performance comes at a cost; noise. At 2600RPM, the H100 isn’t a quiet unit at all and similarly at 2000RPM, it can still be quite intrusive. In terms of performance per noise, high end air coolers from Phanteks, Noctua and Thermalright still reign supreme, contrary to Corsair’s own marketing. Like other ALC units, the H100 relies too much on high RPM fans for its performance when the goal of water cooling is generally for extreme performance at low noise levels.
