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.

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/sp...

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.
