Well psu is fine, just wanted to check as you didn't mention the brand, If you plan on air - then i recommend hyper 212+ . I have one myself- at 3.6 ghz, temps dont go over 60 c.

I've decided to go with the following

--Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case


---ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Also, I'm new to overclocking and you said you get 60c @ 3.6ghz isnt that alittle hot???

I want to get my Amd as close to 4.0ghz as possible @ full load

every time you decide on mid tower case,you will end up running in to cooling issues, specially with high end heatsinks ..ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm is not
the best choice
