The PSU could be better.

The case is VERY overkill and expensive.

No SSD?

I personally do not like closed loop water coolers.

For PSU look at antec, XFX, Corsair (not CX line), Seasonic. 650w is fine.

Look at the NZXT Phantom 410 in white. 3 fans is all any build ever needs.

DO NOT get a raidmax case. They are very low quality.

The nzxt is a nice case but I myself hate doors that swing out to easy for kids or even adults or pets to run into and break off. In my case my sheppard broke mine off.
