Default Building Computer - Which Components?

Hi, this is my first post here, I hope I'm doing this right

Ok here goes, I'm quite computer proficient and have decided to buy all the parts and assemble a computer myself. I've looked at various tutorials and guides and stuff of what to buy. What I would like to know, is:
-are all of the parts compatible with each other?
-are there any other parts I need?

I'm sure I need some cooling fans... but not entirely sure which ones...
the case says I can have fans for various areas (such as powersupply.. but I THINK it has a cooling fan built in). And I KNOW that I need a fan for the cpu, but not sure which one :/


I'll provide the titles and PCWORLD links of all the parts I've added to my list. It would be GREATLY APPRECIATED if anybody could check through everything, make sure its compatible and suggest things which I may also need to add. THANKS

(I really hope I've posted this in the right place, I'm going to look like a right idiot if it isnt...)

Everything that you have listed is compatible... Although, I've never personally heard of the brand Highpower for a PSU manufacturer. I would recommend sticking with a trusted PSU maker. Take a look at this one, a little more expensive but you really do get what you pay for.
