if you want to be better future proof a Z97 with an i5 or i7 would be the better option.

If you're going with the 9590 the minimum cooler I would consider is the H100i, seen ppl with problems using the H80i...

If you want case fans, then you have the wrong ones SP (static pressure) are for radiators and heatsinks.. and the AF (airflow) for case fans.

I would get 1866 ram as its the best ram for the 9590. Both compatible.

this is a better build with this changes, better cooler, faster ram, better PSU (Tier 1 vs tier 2B)

I'm actually going to go with that. Since my theme is green do you think I should just pickup a green light strip?

yes.. why not

you can also change the fans on the H100i for 2 green sp120 or 4 if push pull configuration

I'm just replacing some of the factory case fans, might attract dust, but I'm all about black and green.
