If you aren't planning to overclock, then the stock cpu cooler is sufficient. The cpu you choose is not a "k" version which means it is locked to overclocking.

Why do you want a limited function micro atx motherboard if your getting a full tower case? Those boards are space saving designs for smaller sized systems, and therefore they lack features that won't fit compared to a regular atx board. But the full tower case is as big as it gets for typical desktop systems. That case is giant compared to your board and is meant for tons of fans, drives, bugger graphics cards, liquid cooling, etc.

You might as well just get a full atx board so you don't have as few ports, pci slots, drive hookups, etc.

I thought some of your prices were really high at first too till I noticed it's Australian money... Kinda threw me off lol.

Yea i noticed it was a micro atx motherboard, any other motherboards that are msi and are around the same price. GD-65 maybe, thats the only one i can think of off the top of my head.

The gd45 should be somewhere around there too, but I'm not sure and too lazy too check on my phone lol. It costs a bit less than the gd65 in the US though and is very close features wise
