That CPU should actually come with it's own CPU fan and should be adequate if you are not overclocking.

I do not feel obliged to help out further as you have mentioned your OS will be pirated, and I discourage piracy.

Athlon II x4 645 || 1TB 7200rpm HDD || EVGA GTX 650Ti OC || 8GB DDR3 RAM || Windows 7 Home x64

i5 4210M || 500GB Samsung EVO 850 SSD || GeForce 825M || 16GB DDR3 RAM || Windows 10 x64

that cpu is locked so it cannot be overclocked and comes with a cooler so you would not need the aftermarket cooler.

The motherboard/hdd etc would come with sata cables, so you wouldn't need extra.

A mid atx tower is not much bigger than that?

CiT Vantage Midi Mesh Gaming Case with HD Audio, 4 Fans, Card Reader and No PSU - Black: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

And the best advice i can give is NEVER USE A CHEAP PSU, NEVER. That one WILL break an take other parts with it. trust me.

Only use trusted brands. corsair,xfx, seasonic, ocz etc or a trusted rebrand (novatech)

Novatech PowerStation Gaming 400W Silent ATX2 Modular Power Supply | NOV-PSG400

I would save some more money an get the I5 3570k (£170),but depends on what its used for. I

wouldnt bother with ddr3 graphics cards, get a ddr5 (only 20-30 more would be needed)

ddr5 1gb hd 7750oc £83
I5 3570k oc'd 4.3Ghz, CM hyper 212+cooler, Gskill 8gb 1600Mhz, Gigabyte 7970hd oc edition, msi z77a-g45. Samsung 830 256gb SSD, WD cavier black Hdds
