The cooler will fit. No big changes from me. Mostly the 2x4GB RAM for dual channel configuration. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO comes with thermal paste so you don't need to buy one.

Nice build, trying to imagine it and looks great in my mind :p , but i suggest atleast but a mid-range graphics card in it like the 650 Ti which is on sale now on amazon for a 100$ or so, or go with a 260x from AMD

your better off using a standard size case. the parts are cheaper in the long run if you do and you can sli/crossfire your gpu if needed. the samll cases are nice for movie/av pc.

Thats the plan, eventually, the motherboard supports crossfire/sli as well.

And thanks ksham for the cooler info and thermal paste tip
