    Looks good to me. Your CPU/ CPU cooler will come with thermal compound, but if you want an aftermarket one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835100007
  2. Looks pretty solid. Is the SSD going to be your only drive, or just your OS drive? I'd consider adding an HDD unless you're really frugal with your storage.

    This should cover you as far as thermal paste selection and application:

    Edit: I'm guessing that you already know that's more PSU than you need. Are you planning to Crossfire later?
  3. Not really! I might do it in future
