New desktop build advice needed.

Hi guys!
I am planning on building a new desktop and I was wondering what kind of cooling method I should implement for the CPU (I've heard that the new Ivy Bridge cores heat up quickly, but I'm not planning on OC-ing much.

Intel i7-3770K Processor
Asus HD7970-DC2T-3GD5
GSkill TridentX F3-2666C11D-8GTXD
Samsung 128GB 2.5-inch SSD 830 Series
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB Hard Drive
Corsair HX Series HX750 Power Supply

I would also like to know what is the exact difference between the HD7970-DC2T-3GD5 and the HD7970-3GD5?
Also what mobo would you guys recommend from P8Z77-V PRO, P8Z77-V PRO/THUNDERBOLT, P8Z77-V DELUXE, MAXIMUS V GENE?
For the chassis, I'm looking at corsairs 550d and the silverstone ps06? Any recommendations there?

I dont think I'm missing any components other than the optical drive, which doesn't really matter for me, but if I am, let me know!

Thanks!
