I don't care for recent reports regarding Samsung labor conditions (subsidiaries and such) and I've always found Western Digital to be the most reliable. Some of their NEWEST drives are quite fast: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... That's all I have to say, pretty good build. | Report abuse tecmo34 August 15, 2010 12:32:15 AM I would go with the Cooler Master HAF 922 for your case. Rest of your build looks good... IMO | Report abuse Wayrath27 August 15, 2010 12:43:31 AM Thanks!

One suggestion I can make is maybe looking at the Hyper 212 Plus Universal CPU Cooler. http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0315397. They seem to be highly praised around here and are $30. | Report abuse Wayrath27 August 15, 2010 1:23:34 AM Thanks Aphelion, good suggestion, I'll definitely look into it. | Report abuse Wayrath27 August 15, 2010 1:55:20 AM Thanks for the help everyone, all ordered.
