    The Zalman cooler is not the best, try the scthe infinity = better+cheaper.
    Dominator RAM is no different to the normal XMS2's, just the heatsink. Might be better value to go for the standard ones.

    Also, what case are you getting. Lots to choose from, Akasa mirage maybe - big and cool.

    The zalman CNPS9700-LED is cool, quiet, and purdy. Can't say the same for scythe coolers on the looks front.

    If I was going for a case I'd get the Akasa Eclipse 62, the Mirage front panel is fugly. However great airflow with either, and tons of room to move around, plus a windowed side panel can be had for dirt cheap.

    My case is a year old version of the Coolermaster Tsunami Dream

    Had a look at the fan you mentioned looks good and a few quid cheeper , but the trouble is the fan and normal ram is on "ETA Manufacter".
