Build advice please (Mostly CPU/cooler/motherboard questions)

I'm making a new computer to kick off college, and I'd like a bit of advice on what I'm thinking so far.

CPU: AMD FX-9590

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131876&cm_re=ASUS_Crosshair_V_Formula-Z-_-13-131-876-_-Product

Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139011

Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181032

These are the parts I've thought most about so far, and I plan to include an SSD, hard drive, and (obviously) RAM and a graphics card. What I'm most interested in right now is that if the motherboard, cooler and CPU will play nice. I've tried using the CPU before(it was a graduation gift) and I had some issues with it because the rest of my rig wasn't up to snuff. I would also appreciate some graphics card advice (I'd like something to match the grade of my CPU, more or less).

My apologies if I've missed come crucial information, or if my questions aren't possible to answer without knowing the rest of my rig. Still trying to get the hang of picking parts. Thanks a ton!

Don't get the 9590. It has a stupidly high TDP. Get an 8350 the 9590 is basically an over clocked 8350 plus the 8350 is cheaper than the 9590

I already have the 9590 (like I said, it was a gift), so I would prefer to build around it. That's why I'm asking specifically about the cooler and such.

I would buy cheaper parts and put it towards a nice gpu.

You can't buy cheap parts with a 9590. It NEEDS liquid cooling and NEEDS a good motherboard or it's going to fry itself and/or your northbridge. Or maybe just throttle itself down of you are lucky.

Drugs are never the answer, unless the question is what isn't the answer.

My main concern is how the parts I have will play with the 9590. From what I've heard and experienced, it's a bit of a fidely peice of hardware, and, since I already have it, I want to make sure to get other parts that will wok with it. Cost isn't a huge issue.
