You wont need a CPU cooler other than the included stock Intel cooler, if you don't get a K-series. On the non-K processors, stock cooler is sufficient. If you opt for a K-series, I recommend buying a Z97 motherboard as well.

Now to the case and PSU:

This one is absolute quality and fully modular. Based on the G-series from Seasonic, its superiority has been proven. Will last you a very long time: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550bbefx

Here are my two favorite cases, both incredibly silent, easy to work with and vast options regarding upgrades:

The K-series have an unlocked multiplier, useful for overclocking. The non-K series do not have an unlocked multiplier, which is not useful for overclocking.

Thus, a ix-xxxxK processor is for overclocking, a ix-xxxx is not for overclocking - broadly speaking.
