It's my first time building a PC rig strictly for editing (Unity/Blender/Photoshop/After Effects) and gaming.

I have most of it but I'm struggling with what motherboard, SSD, and CPU to get along with trying to figure out if overclocking will be a factor to improve 3D rendering.

What I have so far:

Case: Antec Three Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded 2 x USB 3.0

Power supply: CORSAIR CX series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

HDD: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Planning to get a ASUS GTX650TI-OC-2GD5 GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

ASUS Z87 Pro (or similar), or an ASUS Maximus VI Hero paired with an i7-4770k.

I would highly recommend the Samsung Pro series of SSDs, 120GB should do you just fine.

Ok so I have an Asus Z87 Pro (V-Edition) and I keep looking at the antec three hundred two and the motherboard's manual to see where I can install the fans that came with the case, but I can't see where but I sure you can't plug it in the CPU fan slots right?

Do I have to replace the fans?
