More about cooling assistance time build
  1. no obvious issues with the build. Power supply is overkill unless you plan on doing 2 of those 570s like I am.

    Just about any cooler should fit int he case. Crowd favorite around here is the hyper 212+, but there are many more interesting looking coolers if you don't mind laying down some cash.
  2. Case - No front USB 3.0 port

    PSU - somewhat undersized for twin 570's if you are not overclocking

    http://www.geforce.com/Hardware/GPUs/geforce-gtx-570/specifications

    Thermal and Power Specs:

    97 C - Maximum GPU Temperature

    219 W - Maximum Graphics Card Power [for 2nd card]
    550 W - Minimum System Power Requirement [w/ one card]

    769 total

    Two 6-pin - Supplementary Power Connectors

    Here's a real live test when the card is overclocked.

    Actual system draw with one 570 GFX card overclocked = 615 watts .....add a 2nd, and ya easily pass 750 watts.
