£100 for case+PSU

Hello people of OC3D, I am building a pc,
i5 2500K
8GB Vengence
HD7850 Twin Frozr II

That leaves me £100 to spend on a case and power supply, I was orignally going to go with a Coolermaster silencio 550 with a 550W cm psu, but have heard that it has terrible airflow, which may not be a good idea if I plan on overclocking.

So if you will, what power supply and case should I get for a combined price of £100, that will have good airflow, not excessively noisy and has space for upgrades such as a new heatsink

Don't buy the ASUS P8Z77-V-LX. It has no heatsinks.
Get the MSI Z77A-G45. This costs 10 pounds more.
This leaves you to £90 for PSU and case.
Get the Corsair CX500 PSU.
£45 for case.
I'd spend £15 more and go for the Corsair Carbide 300r case.
