ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM Microsoft
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT55TFBGRBOX

Thermaltake Element G VL10001W2Z Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ700MXSP 700W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC ...


4gigs of Gskill RAM

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST31000528AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Will all that be compatible? And, for the task I am using the build for, I will be using 100% CPU for prolonged periods of time (possibly overclocking the CPU from 2.8 to 3.2 or 3.4). Will I need liquid cooling or will the stock fan be fine? If I need liquid cooling, would a corsair h50 fit in this build?

Thanks for all the help, really appreciated.

1. Go for an entry level 800 series mobo rather than a 700 series one : a BIOS update is mandatory with the latter

2. IGP + Thuban: 700W way overkill - hit a 450-550w 80+

3. F3 1TB? In fact a PSU + F3 1TB combo

4. Such light OC has been done on stock HSF but dun H50 not worth it - hit a decent air cooler like CM 212+, Mugen2/Yasya

Alright thanks very much. Saved me a lot of $ :) 
One question, could I buy the haf 922 incase I want to upgrade some time in the future and have enough room for all the upgrading? Would this setup work fine in the haf922 or do I really need to stick with the suggested case?

Any case as long as being able to house mATX mobos would be fine ^^ U are welcomed ^^
