Please sort out the details of your build better so it's not just one big block of text. From what I've read at amazon, the motherboard supports up to 2200MHz of RAM so you have any choice of RAM to buy. I would personally buy from Patriot, Kingston, or G-Skil.

If you want to future proof right now then buy a PSU greater than 900W, probably 950W would hold you over.

I don't know the clearance off-hand for the HAF 932 but I would imagine a full tower could fit any air cooler you can install.

Thank you for your input so 900-950 would run 2way sli great!
