Case & PSU build questions...

I've pretty much settled on my build but have a few questions I was hoping someone could give me input on. Here's what I'm going with, followed by my two questions:

i5 4670K proc
ASUS Z87 Pro
EVGA GTX 780
Samsung 250GB SSD
Seagate Barracuda 3TB HDD
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Corsair Vengeance 16GB 1600

First, I'm leaning towards the NZXT Source 210 Elite case. Any problems getting these components to fit?

Second, I'm looking at a 750W PSU and was leaning towards the Corsair 750M but some reviews about them making a lot of noise made me nervous. Any suggestions on good brands?

You can go here to see a list of brands which rank from the most to least recommended. http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx

For your build currently the CPU and GPU are very good, and Corsair power supplies are very good, as you should be able to see in the thread I've listed above. You should opt out for anything above it though, possibly a tier 1 PSU, and if you have the money you could go for a Corsair AX (Tier 1), or anything of their TX, HX, and VX series. (Tier 2)

And about the case, I have no experience about them. Sorry!

Hope I helped!

I have used that case, everything will fit, including your 212 EVO cooler. Just make sure you RAM is not those big tall ones with huge heatsinks, otherwise it might not fit with your cpu cooler.

Thanks! That will definitely help. Now I need to pick one. Does 750W seem like overkill? I'm not sure I'll ever get a second GTX 780...

Thanks, oczdude8. Here's what they look like: Corsair Vengeance 16GB 1600. Are those the ones you're talking about? Also, did you like the case?

If you ever get another GPU, then you will need the power. But if you think not, then you should be good with a 600W PSU, which should fit your computer comfortably.

Here's a site that I use to check GPU's and their power requirements: http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm

A 750W according to the website would not support a SLI 780 anyway, but this is the websites data, and not physical, actually proved data. So beware about that.

The 780 recommends a 575W PSU, so 600W to 650W should be good, depending on your choices on overclocking.

Yes those are the tall ones. I cant tell you for sure if they will fit or not . You'd have to do research or ask on forum again.
I would say your okay because you can adjust the height of the fan on the 212.

Also the case is pretty decent for the price. Its good quality and completely black inside too. You'd definitely need a modular psu, as space is limited, and if you care about cable management, it will need some patience, but its definitely doable.
