Other than that, it's a good looking build...I LOVE that case. Best solution g-unit1111 February 6, 2012 7:02:37 PM That looks really good actually. I have the Graphite 600T and while I love it, I will tell you that is huge and heavy and not easily transportable. If you move your computer around for any reason I'd suggest looking at the slimmer Carbide 500R: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Also don't get that RAM if you plan on using the Hyper 212 - the tall heat sinks are a menace to large coolers. Try one of these RAM sets - they would be far better: - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

(Also, I don't plan on moving the PC around at all. It will sit underneath my desk in my office. I did read that they are quite heavy though) w0lfspyd3r February 6, 2012 9:37:49 PM Best answer selected by w0lfspyd3r.
