  1. Yeah, this is great. The CX is terrible though; go EVGA and you're good to go.

    thank you, I was avoiding the cpu cooler because I'm going to liquid cooling pretty soon an i do both?
  4. PSU: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1650snlb9 << This will be enough for your system and still have some room to overclock.
  5. Haha you call that a budget PC?

    Anyways, very solid build you got there. I personally would prefer a mid ATX case to a full tower, but that's totally up to you. Also, if you plan to overclock that 4690k, I'd consider grabbing an aftermarket CPU cooler. If you aren't gonna OC, then the stock cooler should be fine.

    I though the NZXT Phantom is an ATX Full Tower?
