Hi once more.

I am putting together the parts for my new I7 build.

I am leaning towards this case

LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62 Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

Right now it is out of stock.

This is the motherboard I want

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

This is the CPU cooler I like

COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - Retail

This is the Ram I wish to purchase

OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK - Retail

I will be doing some mild overclocking. Right now I will stick with fan cooling as I have never installed water cooling.

Will this combination of Case + Motherboard + CPU Cooler fit?
Will the size of this CPU Cooler cause any issues with ram installation?

I know this is a large CPU cooler and I do not wish to make any modifications to the case in order to get it to fit.

If this will not work together, could someone suggest a case that would?

Please keep in mind I would like to keep this a mid-size case. I would also like to have a clear side so that I may see inside.

Thanks in advance

Make sure you get atleast 650 watt power supply from a good brand like antec, corsair, seasonic, pc power & cooling, or ocz to power those two GPUs with.
