I want to know which one to run for a good gaming setup.
Current setup:http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1kwKu
Im unsure of the case and I just noticed that my MOBO is not compatible with the i7 4770k, for gaming should I just refund my i7 and get an i5? or should I get the new socket with an asus sabertooth motherboard?

I also plan on buying new fans either, the cougars or bitfenix 140's if I get the fractal or cougar 120's and nzxt fn200 for the phantom.

So really I'm asking two questions since i don' goofed.
1.) Trade in the mobo for the sabertooth or processor for the ivy bridge version?
2.) Fractal case or phantom for cooling/space?

Thank you!

for gaming get the i5, keep the mobo and just get ivy it has the same game performance, maybe 2fps difference. For the case they are both great cases but i seem to like the phantom better for cable management, space and just look

i had assumed this much, the nzxt is just a great case and so is the fractal. The nzxt is just a clean case with a nice space to put your builds.
