All looks good but why the pci slot fan?

if you have doubts the case has good enough cooling , then just spend more money on a better case IMO
Or spend the $15 you save on the fan on better RAM . Ideal CAS latency of 7 , and 1600 MHz if you can find some

Just paroosing newegg and found it. I dont know anything about the case for cooling as of yet but i assume it should be fine regardless.

Ram is expensive, and I bought crucial because i had heard it was a reliable brand. Any other suggestions for RAM?
