Im getting a Samsung 960 EVO 256 SSD when it comes out in October. Definitely not letting it bottleneck there, just wanted to wait for the improved speeds and better price. I'm not sure about the CPU fan, either the Noctua NH-D15 with dual fans or Noctua NH-U14S. Im seeing benchmarks with different numbers, some sites saying one is the best, and the next site saying the other is. I think everything else is pretty good, for the money, but im willing to spend a little more if theres some major improvements. Staying with Newegg only, as they have the 12 months 0% apr financing. Oh and I have a mouse already.

Looks good to me :)

As for the CPU coolers, they both are good. I'd guess the NH-D15 performs better... On Noctua's own site there is a TDP Guid. They are both on the top section.
