1. What OS will you use?
2. Are you going to overclock? If so you need a good aftermarket cooler. Even if you aren't overclocking it is still recommended .

It will be Windows 7.

An upgraded cooler sounds like a good idea. Not sure about over-clocking but good to have the option.

Is liquid cooling the best option or just a good fan/heat-sink?

Thanks for your help!

2000mhz memory is only usable with overclocking.. that MOBO supports 1600/1333/1066 native so switch to 1600mhz

Asetek liquid cooling is just like the corsair h50. I like them both.
