Looks like it will be a good build. Enjoy.

thank you! i thought it would be, my only concern was only having maybe to much wattage and blow the motherboard or processor or something silly like that XD just as long as it looks good to you and a couple others then ill place my order soon and get back to beloved pc gaming XD

Your power supply will only give the motherboard/ CPU the power that it requires. You are well over the required wattage to run the system so you will not be over driving your power supply and have plenty of headroom to add more GPUs later.

Your 912 will do a good job but I would order a CM 200mm fan for the front behind the panel and one 120 mm for the side. There will be no cooling issues.
