Hey guys I'm looking to move into a bigger tower and figured i would make the move and some modifications at the same time. I currently reside with...

Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower
ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ AMD 990FX
dual crossfire SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI
hec Zephyr MX 750 750W (not modular)
AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

and with all of this in the mid tower case, it all fits and all but becoming extremely cramped and hard to work around all the cords, and my processor runs at 55 degree C when running video games like WoW and crysis 2. So I'm looking for a bigger case better cpu cooling and a fully modular/or part modular PSU. I have come across these good options I think....

Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case
CORSAIR Hydro Series H80
OCZ ZT Series 750W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Bronze

I'm not the smartest when it comes to all of this but I would the cpu cooler fit on my processor and the PSU be a good choice for me?

If there are better options for me let me know, I'm here to learn.
please and thank you.

Don't get the H80, or ZT750.

Here are some better options:
Noctua NH-D14
Phanteks TCP14

What card are you going to run?

You didn't list your GPU's in the 1st post. :) 

Go with a corsair TX650V2 instead of the ZT750, it will power 2 6850's easily.

The Noctua NH-D14 and phanteks outperform the H80.

dual crossfire SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI


and as for the corsair TX650V2 i want a full modular psu, or even part modular, and that one is not, and would not be worth buying seeing as my 750 psu works just fine, just not modular.

and i was looking at the H80 because its a more compact cooling unit and I will still be able to over clock my cpu, I assume from what I read. where as for the massive heat sinks get in the way of everything.
