Just wan't to make sure everything is compatible for this build! Just so you know, I customised this build for my dad. He was going to get an iMac, but then he was put off. He wanted to spend 500-600 pounds on a pc that looked good and was powerful. He does NO gaming, that's why it's onboard graphics!:) 

Spec :

Motherboard -Gigabyte H77N-WIFI Motherboard (SKT 1155, Mini-ITX)
Cpu - Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K CPU (4 x 3.40GHz, Ivy Bridge, Socket 1155, 6Mb L3 Cache, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0) ( will overclock )
Cooler - Corsair CWCH60 Hydro Series H60 High Performance 120mm Radiator All-In-One Liquid CPU Cooler ( Do i need fan's for this? Please say )
Ram -Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C​9 LP Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 Memory Module Kit
SSD -Crucial 64GB M4 SATA 6Gb/s 2.5 inch Internal Solid State Drive ( He has another 3 drives in his old pc, so no need for other hdd )
Psu -Corsair CMPSU-500CXV2UK​ Builder Series CX500V2 - 80 Plus Certified Power Supply ( Should be enough, i think!:p  )
Sound Card -Asus Xonar DGX 5.1 Sound Card (PCI Express 1.0, Smart Volume Normalizer, Xear 3D Virtual Speaker Shifter, Magic Voice) ( He loves his music!)
Case - Bitfenix Prodigy ( Will it all fit?)

I'd suggest getting the i5-3570 because you can't overclock with an H77 motherboard. The stock HSF should be fine for the same reason. The Corsair CWCH60 includes a fan, but fitting that thermal solution along with an SSD and 3 hard disks may be an issue. You should check reviews or contact Bitfenix before buying.
