I'm looking to build a system for work/home office running several VMs mainly linux with some windows. I'm trying to also keep it low power as the system may be on for long periods of the day or may even run it 24/7 - I may have 1 VM as a dedicate NAS server.

(I'll probably get the BitFenix Ghost case which is not on the pcpartpicker list.)
I'm not into games so don't need graphics card. Not sure if I would need any other cooling e..g cpu cooler? or the heat-sink on the cpu should be sufficient?
Just like to sanity check my build and avoid any post-purchase doh! moments.
