Why a Fractal design PSU? Just get the EVGA one. It even cost way less then that, and has a better rating I believe.

Also, Seagate Barracude, really? That's a horrible HDD. Switch to Western Digital ASAP. Also that Intel Pentium doesn't even support 1600MHz RAM so all you're really doing is wasting money beyond that point.

True but that's if the OP will ever upgrade to begin with, plus you might as well need a BIOS update to if you plan to upgrade to a i3 or even a i5 due to the fact that even on that current motherboard it said "Some Intel B85 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Haswell Refresh CPUs." and considering the OP has no idea how to do a BIOS update, it can cause many many problems.

https://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-100w10500kr Granted it's not modular, it's still +50 wats with a 80+ certificate. It's also $5 cheaper, and with the $10 rebate, $15 cheaper for +50 watts, but not modular.

https://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-100b10500kr Or this one, again not modular bot +50 watts with a 80+ Bronze certificate. Plus it's literally the same exact price.

I also don't see how there crap if looking at the reviews for both on Newegg, there excellent, especially for gaming.

I must've been looking at the wrong build then lol. I've had mutliple tabs opened all at once for a while now, and I got confused xD.

Having the right case, you can easily get rid of the cables that block airflow. Or you could just you know, keep them all tied down to the bottem below the HDD's, and now air flow would be blocked.
