Firstly I would just like to say, this is going to be a hackintosh so I have picked these parts for their compatibility.

I have a few concerns. Firstly is there anything that might not fit. I have done some reasearch but cant find any issues so if you see any post below please.

Secondly, is the h100i going to be loud?

the h100i is not going to be any louder than other cooling solutions

you don't need 16gb of RAM and 8gb is more then enough unless you're going to video render.

the os isn't here but i presume you've calculated this

you're also gone over kill on your psu and SSD
