Delta get this build instead. Has a 10 times better psu which is fully modular and has 80+gold efficiency. You will regret getting the cx750m. You dont need to buy thermal paste, the cooler master hyper includes it. You have a 120gb ssd for games and os. Also you have the nzxt phantom full tower case. If you already bought your build, all hope is lost. LOL JK.
