Don't order small parts?
They'll look twice as small in that huge case.

install the cpu into the mobo first
you can install the cooler outside of the case and then install the whole package (cpu, heatsink, ram)

if your case has a backplate window you can install the cooler while the motherboard is in the case

next hard drives, cable management

video card

more cable mangement


did i say cable management?

Nothing worse then finding out later(inconvenient) you got a bum stick.

you think your case is big try looking for the Silverstone TJ11 supercase.

now thats BIG, 3 inches higher and from front to back 8 inches and 3 inches wider.

my mate has the HAFX942 and my case makes his look like a mid tower :S
