Great build overall - would suggest kicking the DRAM up, 1600 is entry level and Haswell scales very well to faster DRAM, I'd look to 1866 or 2400 anyway, maybe a killer buy - Tridents 2x4GB 2400/10 for $82 here:
I have one final question regarding the power supply unit. I already counted the number of SATA plugs that the PSU has which is more than enough for my hard drives. However, does it have all of the other required power plugs and connections for the motherboard, GPU, SSD HDD, cpu cooling fan, case fans, etc.? The cooling fans that I have listed are intended to replace the ones that come with the case.
Hey guys. I just thought I would let you all know that I got the PC up and running. With this being my first build, it took a total of 8 hours over the course of two days installing the hardware. Figuring out how to replace the front cooling fan was a pain in the butt. The CPU and CPU cooler installation (after accidentally dropping the CPU at a height of six inches onto my table) was also a pain. To my surprise installing the motherboard into the case was pretty quick but I then had to switch the CPU cooling fan from facing the rear of the case to the front out of concern that it would suck in the warm air that the exhaust fan was trying to remove. I had to make a couple of hardware changes. I got for X-mas a Rosewill N900PCE Wi-Fi antenna instead of the TP-Link, but it still has the same capabilities. I also ended up buying a SIIG 4-port USB 3.0 expansion card and installed it in one of the front expansion bays instead of trying to replace the four USB 2.0 ports on the top of the case. Because of the additional USB 3.0 card, I decided to buy a 650 watt Seasonic M12II Bronze Plus PSU with 8 SATA ports because I did not feel comfortable being limited to one additional SATA port on the Antec PSU if I needed to expand in the future. I did a little gaming with Crysis yesterday and the visual effects look pretty good with 2x anti-aliasing, even though I am using Vsync since my HP 2311x display refreshes at 60hz. The music playback is noticeably better with the THX card I installed. One final question I have is, even though I don't plan to overclock, are the RAM sticks that I am using overclockable? I couldn't figure out if they were or not. If they are, I plan to include them with the motherboard and CPU if I sell them in the summer of 2016 or early 2017 when I do a rebuild.
