    Everything looks great, nice choice on power supply.

    About the hard drive:
    1) Is it SATA? if not then no you do not need a poweer adaptor, if it is SATA then i am not too sure, your motherboard, hard drive, or power supply might come with one...

    2) Is it 8mb cache? it's a lot faster than a drive with 2mb cache so you might want to make sure.

    Where are you buying from?

    It is a SATA with an 8 MB buffer. I'm getting everything except the case and keyboard from Newegg.

    Your Enermax PSU comes with the necessary SATA power connectors.

    Does anyone have any experience with ThernoMaxx fans? There is one out there that has a sensor on it. Also what about the Vantec Stealth fan?

    I hate the thermo-sensor fans.

    Stealths are nice, as are Sunons.

    Either run your fans on 7v ( nice and quiet) or use a fan controller to speed them up/down.

    YUa don't use the sensored ones i bought one about a half year ago and didn't like it cause it was always running at the slowest speed. I returned it for a cheaper non-sensored fan and it blows way more air.
    I've seince replaced them with 80mm led fans though...
