Wouldn't it be better to get a full size ATX mainboard, instead of mATX? shrug.
For the Heat sink fan. I would change it to »www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a···35608018 since ivy bridge are very hot.
PSU I would go for
»www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a···17371056 Same price, it is 80 Plus Platinum.
Case. I think you should change to where the back has a hole where the cpu is. If in the future he/she want to change a new heat sink fan. Instead of taking out the whole mainboard.

Well, he's on the border on that issue, he prefers full ATX boards but was looking at small ones for portability, and to fit in the smaller case. As far as the Antec, I have had 3 of them fail on me in the past. Yes, I know they've improved, but I refuse to give them business, if he wants to get it, fine, that's up to him.
As far as the HS/F, I suggested the Hyper 212+ because I don't think he needs to spend big money on a cooler. IF he overclocks, it will be a mild overclock, he's very wary of doing so. Besides, something that heavy in a small system being lugged around, no, it's a no go.
But thanks for all your input so far, it's all immensely appreciated.
