I am currently looking at building a new system, I have done one in the past but it ran quite hot. With my need build I am looking to find a cooling system no more than $200-250 (preferably under $200) which will be able to efficiently cool the following rig.

-Fujitsu MBA3147NC 147GB 15000 RPM 8MB Cache SCSI Ultra320 80pin 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
-PLEXTOR Black 8X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal BD Combo Model PX-B320SA LightScribe Support - OEM

The cooling can be any combination of fans or heatsinks or whatever else there is.

You should be fine with just adding a heatsink, and making sure you exhaust the fans the right way on that case. If anything, buy like one big fan to put in with the new build lol.

The ram you are getting is made for i7's on lga1156. That socket is dual channel(same as the ram your gonna get). You want triple channel ram, so ram with 3 sticks or 6. I dont know if it would work or not, just that it wasnt meant for i7 920's socket with triple channel.
