My System Specs

My concern was the wattage, and you've just verified my thoughts that the PSU has more than enough grunt for the setup, thanks
Oh, you put hot air off the CPU rad into case. Good for CPU, bad for every other component in the system. You may damage VRMs on your MB and VC that way.

Make front fan intake, up its RPMs, all others should push air out, including CPU rad fan. Your goal is to make air inside your case cooler.
