Now, anywhere you know of where I can check to make 100% sure these parts are compatible? I'm pretty positive they are, but checking and rechecking never hurts.
The only thing that I would make 100% sure and I will try checking for you is that the motherboard supports ivy bridge without a bios update, had a buddy who had that problem and couldn't update it without a sandy bridge.
It looks like you're good to go.
In the case specs I can't find anywhere that tells what exactly all the fan sizes are for each place but I'd check that out in a review video on youtube or some place and Front, Rear, Top will be plenty, if you're thinking of using side fans I'd highly suggest otherwise, creates a ton more noise and will not help much nor will you need it. the gpu exhausts out the rear and the top and front will be plenty of airflow.
Alright 3rd time editing this, after watching the video I'd just not buy the 140mm and put 2 of the 120's in the front and 2 in the top and skip the sides. Just my opinion. Looks like you were planning to do 2 top 2 side and 140 front?
Just from past experience with a case 3 feet to my side the side fans just make much more noise, I'd even suggest 1 140 front then just buy a 2 pack of 120's for the top.
I made a little mod to cover up my side ventilation wholes to create a better uhm, airflow tunnel I guess? Just have the front intakes and rear and top , shoudl in theory create air flow from the front bottum then pull it up and out the top and back.
