I picked the NXZT case since it appears from reviewing to be pretty quiet and cool well--I also like how it looks!
I did NOT pick the NZXT cooler because I heard it's somewhat loud, and from reviews, the corsair tends to cool just as well and be quieter. Since the NZXT case has a rear 140mm, far as I can tell, it will support the corsair cooler.
As for the SSD, while I would like to grab a 256 GB, I could not seem to fit it into my budget and still get the other components I wanted. Therefore, I plan to mainly mount the OS, Office, etc on it. And use the 1 TB drive for games, media, and so on.
I picked the motherboard based on wanting something a little bit higher end, but also to have WiFi. While a wired connection would be great, it is not currently possible where I live.
One concern I have is if the RAM height will get in the way of the tubing for the cooler, not sure how I would go about finding out if it will.
That about sums it up! Thank you all for any feedback.
