Psu and cooling advice

I am building inside a bitfenix prodigy for my first build, I'm planning on putting in a i5-6600k processor and a gtx 1060. Since I'm only using one hard drive and an ssd I'm likely pulling out the top 3 harddrive bracket things. So, two questions. 1) what psu to look at? It says 140mm should be where I'm looking but I'm not having much luck, plus I admit based on videos looks like the smaller the better for cable management. 2) my air flow, I'm using the white version without the mesh front. I imagine based on what I've read that I'm gonna have some cooling issues. Ive got the cooler master hyper evo CPU cooler on, but will the stock fans be enough, if not, what should I replace with? Thanks very much for taking the time to read this and look forward to hearing any ideas.

1) Does it need to be modular/semi? Try building a part list, the pcpp compatibility checker should detect size incompatibility.

2) That cpu cooler should be good enough, unless you're planning for heavy overclocking
