Hi guys,

first of all, heres my build:

PSU:
Corsair AX760
Motherboard:
ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO
CPU:
i7 4770K
GPU:
eVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked w/ ACX Cooler (3 GB)
RAM:
G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 2 x 8 GB
SSD
Samsung evo

I'm not quite sure if I need to buy additional cooling for my CPU, or if I can buy a case that has sufficient cooling to begin with?

I'm also thinking about wanting to overclock later on, so buying a case that can fit the Corsair Hydro H100i Extreme Perfomance Liquid CPU Cooler would be nice, but I also still don't have a never ending fund of money, so is there anything you can suggest?

Thanks :)

Well if you plan to overclock you will want more than the stock CPU cooler. I have really good success with my corsair H80i on my overclocked 8350. And that is a pretty hot running chip. I also have a corsair carbide 300r series case and i love it. Air flow is fantastic, with spots for 2 140mm fans in the front. You can fit a h100i in this case too, although it will be pretty snug. I got the case and the h80i for about 89 each.

Hope this helps.
