@harshilsharma63 - I think Corsair 400R would be sufficient for me, as it has 3 fans with it.
I can add 5k for a better components in PC...

Also, can I have a single stick of 8GB Kingston hyperX Blu inplace of 2x4GB

yes.but AFAIK Dual channel memory works slight faster than Single stick

+ Single 8gb stick @5.2k ... whereas 4gb x 2 = 4.7k:wink:

Was wanting to go with a single stick of 8 GB as I will be forced to add another in future...

Revised config:

Asus Z87-K (12600)
CM hyper 212 (3100)
Kingston hyperX Blu 1600 MHz 4 GB x2 (4600)

Will be going with Asus GRYPHON-Z87 @ 14.3k as it offers 5 years warranty
ASUS R9 280X Direct Cooling II Top Edition 3GB (R9280X-DC2T-3GD5) is much better as compared to Sapphire DualX R9 280X
Replacing Corsair GS600 with Corsair CMPSU-650TX 650 Watts PSU @ 6.5k [flipkart]

Since you are going to overclocking with your Haswell based Processors, my suggestion is to get a better cooler. Haswell runs hotter than their Ivy Bridge counter parts and needs better CPU cooler than Hyper 212 EVO for 4 GHz+ overclocking. Try something like DeepCool Ice Blade pro, available around 3K in Theitwares.com.

Is Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H new? Haven't seen it anywhere. Only available online here @ 11.1k
GIGABYTE GA-Z87MX-D3H LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Was buying Asus GRYPHON due to its 5 year warranty, here Motherboard - GRYPHON Z87

Will 650W suffice? Since 280X requires has a TDP of 250 W (on load) & am planning to add some extra 140/120 mm fans on the cabinet for high air flow...

You can get the Gigabyte GA-Z87M-D3H at theitdepot.com for :http://www.theitdepot.com/product_quick_view.html?q=18348
Yes Asus GRYPHON is a solid MB but it is for serious Overclockers only.
