I am building an i7-3930k pc to be used for gaming and photoshop rendering. I do not plan on over-clocking the cpu. I would appreciate advice/suggestions on the build. I am especially concerned about the fit between the mobo, the memory, and the cpu cooler.

Case - CM Storm Trooper
CPU - i7-3930k
Mobo - ASUS P9X79 LE
PSU - Corsair AX1200i
Memory - Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600 8x8Gb Kit
Cooler - Noctua NH-U145
Video - EVGA GTX 780
HD1 - Intel 520 240 GB SSD
HD2 - WD Blue 1TB 64MB Cache
OS - Windows 7 Pro

Great build. The CPU cooler will fit fine with the ram and motherboard. Only think I suggest you change is to get WD 2TB Caviar Black Hard-drive. It will be a little bit faster and will give you more storage for the future than the 1TB Caviar Blue drive.
