Ugh,blue ram on a red and black motherboard? :ouch:  (just something i look at ;)  )

looks good!

Which gpu? And plans for crossfire/sli?.

The noctua NH-D15 should be better than the D14 so get that one if it is within the possibilities.As long as you use low profile ram would you be fine with that cooler,from noctua,

Quote:
the NH-D15 should be used with standard height RAM (up to 32mm).*

However, in chassis with more than 165mm CPU cooler clearance, the front fan can be moved upwards to make room for memory modules taller than 32mm (e.g. moving the fan 5mm up will increase the total height from 165 to 170mm and make room for 37mm tall modules).

Your choice of case supports coolers up to 180mm according to corsair.

SAPPHIRE R9 290 4GB DDR5 TRI-X is what i have. :)  Thanx for ur positive chat. Btw i was only worried cause D14 is huge & D15 is much more wider comparing it. :o  So iam not sure if my corsair cabinet 500r & the mobo ASUS CROSSHAIR V FORMULA Z & the rams would be better for it? Hope so, there would be enough space for rams to remove/clean/& put it back.

Well for removal of the ram should you,i assume,have to take of at least the fan above it,but maybe even the cooler which isn't such a hughe job,but would require new paste every time.
Looked at some pictures in a review and removing the fan should be enough as far as i can see.

Looked again at the build.You realize that for the money you're spending you could also go for a intel build?
If you want amd because you like it is that fine with me,but wanted to mention it to you.The 4690K is on it's way and maybe worth while waiting for.
