The HSF doesn't fit AM3. Shouldn't have bought one unless you overclock. The stock cooler will work.

This mobo can unlock the 3rd core, but it's not guaranteed. Also, no AMD boards support both SLI/CF. It's either or none. This mobo supports CF.

GA-MA790XT-UD4P is a good board. The rest of the parts are good.

F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ is a good ram kit for the price. Get it. The Kingston is sold out.

Yup, get the Hyper HSF.

You're all set.
