Here's what I have so far: (Not sure about the heatsink)
(DVD drive removed when I realized I could use my old one)
Come to think of it, what kinds of extra fans should I get and should I get thermal compound or will the one coming with the CPU be good enough?
The Hyper 212+ has it's own thermal compound in the accessory pack. You won't need to get anything else.
With the 2 standard fans in the Antec 300 you should be OK. It's certainly enough to start out safely. If you find your system temps are running higher than you like you can always add more fans later.
-> The usual advice; read the manual / install guide; look at the parts, read the manual again and if everything makes sense and looks right - then go ahead with the install.
While you're waiting you can download the online version of the motherboard manual and start getting familiar with it. Same for the other parts you want to order if they have install guides or manuals available.
