✔ Best Answer
Cooling system? All you need is the stock heatsink/fan for the CPU & one large exhaust fan (120mm?) in the rear of the case. A front intake fan is optional; a side panel fan should not be used. And it's not really a high end system you're building so a decent quality 500W PSU should be good enough. Here's a 600W Corsair for just $37 after promo code & rebate but you've only got one day to pull the trigger:

BTW, double check your hardware config. The A88X chipset is used for socket FM2/FM2+ systems....that means no hex-core FX-series CPUs which are socket AM3+.
