I'm getting

Silverstone FT-02 case
G.Skill Ripjaws X + Turbulence II 8gb (2 x 4gb) ram
Corsair 850HX power supply
i7-2600k cpu
Noctua NH-D14 cpu cooler
ASUS P67 Deluxe mobo
GTX580 graphics card (with a 2nd one down the road when I need it)

My concerns.. will it all fit? How the heck can I tell if what I'm getting will all fit until I buy it and start putting it together? Mainly wondering if the cooler that comes with the RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231433&cm_re=gskill_ripjaw_1866-_-20-231-433-_-Product will fit under the CPU cooler and if the CPU cooler will fit next to the PSU.

Open to suggestions on different CPU cooler too. Thanks.

You don't need a RAM fan even if overclocking the sticks get a set with tighter timings and no cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (personally I would go for a cas 9 ddr3 1333 4gb set for 40 bucks)

Everything should fit, if you purchase the RAM without the cooler otherwise it'll be trickier

For CPU cooler unless your a hard core air enthusiast a SCMG-2100 should be fine for overclocks up to 5.2ghz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... also don't forget TIM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I would totally revise this build I don't feel it's cost efficient there are a lot of unnecessary costs please fill this out http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advic...
