Your PSU is 3 times the size of what ya need. (400w)

personally Id find the 38 dBA cooler extremely annoying how you gonna do music with that racket ?.

But I dont understand what you are asking ..... since you already "have" all this stuff, why ask after ya already bought it ?

The Sabertooth is a great board for workstation usage..... but if building now, I wudnt go with end of life Z77 components, Id use the Z87 Sabertooth and 4770k....the 3570k/4670k is a gaming CPU w/ no hyperthreading

For case PSU, Id use the Corsair 500R with a TX650 .... nice combo price on newegg right now

Big SSD would be real handy, or better one for ya OS and one for ya audio / video editing temp storage..... Seagate 7200.14 for long term storage.

For GFX, Id do at least a 650 Ti Boost, any of the factory OC'd one except the EVGA Superclocked.

Cooler that fits ya budget (no ALC units .... too damn noisy for audio production) . If budget allows, grab a hi end air cooler like the Phantels PH-TC14-PE or a if ywa want WC, teh Coolermaster Eisberg Prestige 240L

Go for an 850W PSU and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Boost or an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760. Everything else is just fine, but you should consider buying an internal sound card if you don't have or are going to buy an external one.
