Fitting the cooler is everyone's main concern... The H50 actually comes with really good thermal paste pre-applied from the factory. All you have to do is attach the pump / heatsink base, tighten it down, and twist it left to right a few times and you're done. IIRC the thermal paste is Shin Etsu brand. As for getting the wires tidy, it just takes a bit of time. Look at the pics that I posted in my thread... Basically you'll want to route everything through the back of the case if at all possible. New headphones are always good, and with the mobo I've got in the list you're already set up for a USB 3.0 or Firewire 400 or eSATA 6.0 Gbps external enclosure for backup. If you need any more help, you know where to find it.
