First off I'd like to thanks to those who helped namely TheBigTroll and manofchalk.

I've investigated the case and found with the assistance for customer support that the case I wanted won't work for the current cpu cooler on the list.

Case: http://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-SG01B-F-Aluminum-Micr...
Cooler: http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=64385&vpn=RR-212E-20PK...

(This is for the i5-3570K cpu btw.)

New build thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/361472-31-first-build
Parts list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/gka5

I've been wanting to get a "cube" like case for my matx build, is there any recommendations to get closer to what I'm looking for?

Thanks and I hope this is not misplaced.

if you are just asking for LP HSF for the Sugo SG01B-F that work with the LGA 1155 CPU then

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

its only 60mm tall, cools well and is fairly quiet.

I have one in my HTPC/Gamer computer cooling an i5 2500k. way better than the stock intel HSF

if you are asking for a Cube case recommendation then, I would get the SG02B for the USB 3.0 front panel jacks. you should get 2 additional 80mm silent fans for the case also.

your PSU is way overkill a good 450-600W PSU is all you need. I would recommend Silverstone and get their short cable set for small cases so you don't have a wad of cables in your case messing with your air flow.

i dont see the problem with the fractal define mini but ok

the other low profile coolers are the nh-c14, nh-l12, and the gemini from noctua and cooler master respectively

also, the graphics card might not fit given its 10.5 inches long

Ok, I like to the other case better, it's less "messy" (simple in appearance). With switching to jerreddredd's recommended case, cooler, fans and psu will everything work out? I'm aware of the GPU size problem, but on the manufacturer's site they state that even a 14.5" GPU will fit.

I don't think there's anything wrong with the fractal define mini either, I'm just picky when it comes to cases it seems. :p 

Thanks for responses.

I have a mini and I love it. bigger than the SG01/02 though.

the SG02 will take a long card. no issues.

Ok if I were to go with this list (omitting OS & Monitor):

From pcpartpicker list:
Intel Core i5-3570K
Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 Micro ATX LGA1155
G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Samsung 830 Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Galaxy GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card
Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer

And:
Case: SG02B-F
PSU: SILVERSTONE ST60F-P 600W ATX
Cables: Silverstone Model PP05 Short Cable
Cooler: ZALMAN CNPS8900
System Fan: SILVERSTONE SCOOL81 x2

It does stretch the wallet, but that's something I can deal with.
How does system look for overclocking/noise/temperature rise? Is this a winning combination?

Thanks for all help guys, I appreciate it.
