Ok, so I don't need the AS5. Also I was planning on shopping around for the best prices, Newegg's wishlists are just convenient, I saw someone saying the CORSAIR 520HX was cheaper on Buy.com in a different thread.

That was b1gapl. You can go to SVC for fans and HSF and such others. It's pretty cheap there. :happy:

So if I'm going to overclock the Processor would it be better to get the tuniq over the AF7?

I don't think it is. It's best to get aftermarket thermal pastes, such as AS5 or MX-1.
