I have the Cooler Master 690 II Advanced case & the regular CM Hyper 212+ with duel fans for push/pull & they work just fine with plenty of room to spare. Now I do have to say that one of my ram slots is very very close to the front fan (so keep that in mind if your going to have 2 fans)
I only use 8GB (4GB x2) of G.Skill Sniper, but if I was to have all 4 of the slots filled up I couldn't do that, but that's ok with me.
I'm not in expert in picking out parts, but from what I see all looks good to me
@Vollman1 - Thanks for the heads up on the RAM upgradability. I checked out the low profile vengeance and it seems that many mobo's default the speed to 1333 instead of 1600. I guess it's not a huge deal as the BIOS can easily rectify that.
@Gators fan - I'll check out the temps before I decide to go the push pull route. I appreciate you mentioning that. I'm not planning on a huge OC.
Does anyone have any thoughts on the EVGA 560 Ti model I am targeting?
Also, any feedback on the WD 750gb drive I selected? It seems a little on the expensive side...
I'm heading to Micro Center tomorrow to pick up the CPU and motherboard. I'm curious to find out if the manager will price match some of the other components.
The EVGA 560 Ti looks & sounds good based on the feedback & specs from Newegg
I'm actually running 2 Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti Super Overclocked cards in 2 way SLI which are doing me just fine. IMHO go with a 560 Ti & down the road you might find a good deal on one to add a second for increased performance
the Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti super overclock cards I have are;
core clock: 950
memory: 2290 (4580 data rate)
