Anandtech just did a great article on Haswell memory scaling.
I would ditch the Coolermaster power supply for a Seasonic X or G series. 600 watts is all you need even with overclocking.
if you plan to use the igpu, get 2133, if you plan to use a discrete graphics card get 1866. if you just want the fastest ddr3 ram in production get mushkin redline dd3 1866 (yes, it's faster then higher clocked ram)
