I definitely agree about the cooler - Xigmatek coolers are a horrendous pain to install. They come with junk thermal paste, requiring you to buy new, have tons of tiny screws and loose parts, and the rubber connectors for the fans are impossible to work with.

For that price I'd get this:

Mine's a bit more but I included a better case, cooler, and PSU.
