If he wants good airflow the corsair cases wouldn't seem to be the way to go. They are nice but they always have pretty high temps in reviews it seems?

Corsair graphite and carbide series cases have great airlfow. It's cases like the 650D and 850D that have bad airflow.

The 922 is a good case but it's dated. No dust filters, no front 3.0 USB ports, etc...

This is going to my build:

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
Video card: GTX 680
Power Supply: AZZA Titan 1000w 1000A14
CPU: Intel Ivy Bridge 3770k
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB 2x4
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM
Optical Drive: ASUS Black Blu-ray Drive SATA Model BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS - OEM

I will probably put these at future:
1x GTX 680
2x Consair 2x4
1xSilver arrow
1x SSD?

That psu you have up there is an over priced paper weight. If this is a gaming build then drop that 3770K for a 3570K and you can get enough on a mild o/c on the vid card (gtx 670) without adding any voltage to run on par with a gtx 680.

750W psu...look at Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, Antec Gamer series psu's, Silvertone, Enermax, etc... in fact just grab the Corsair TX 750w psu and call it good. The TX 750 combo's with that Corsair 400R on newegg right now. Then combo that board with the 3570K to save a few $$$, drop the Silver Arrow for this down below to get better thermals and save a few more dollars.

nMake sure that Corsair RAM you have up there is the Corsair Vengeance with the Low Profile heat sinks and not the ones with those tall cake cutter ones or your never going to fit an after market cpu h/s. Those tall heat sinks are good for using as a hair comb and nothing more.
