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 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 (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 also don't forget TIM

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
