  1. Looks pretty good! Your PSU will be fine with that system with a little room to spare. You will also have plenty of room in the HAF 912 for the Hyper 212 cooler even if you decide to add a second 120MM fan to it...

  2. Thanks for your fast replies! But 2 out of those 3 mobos have like 30% one and two eggs from user reviews so i think i'll get the ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 unless i find any issues but if you have more recommendations feel free to tell! There's still a lot of time until i buy it after all.
