The upgrades I'll be making are the things that are not purchased. Also, the Noctua NF-A15 will go on my CPU cooler and the NF-A14s will go in the case. Opinions?

Looks pretty good (nice deals you got there, Sandy Bridge still has some life left in it, you know). I’d probably get some newer storage drives (the MX500 can be had for a similar price, plus I’m not sure about how much life that refurb Toshiba has left in it).

Oh, and where are all those fans going?

Lol the 5 dollar 1060 3gb was just me selling my 1050ti for 165 and getting a the current gpu for 170. The 120mm fan goes in back, 2 140mm in the front, and 1 up top in the back. Then we have the A15 fan going onto the CPU cooler just to match.

Sounds good, you might want to pick up a PWM splitter, as the Z77 may not have the sufficient amount to support all of them
