I don't think anyone enjoys clicking link after link to see what you're working with, type the item name in too xD

Looks good, your psu & hdd links just go directly to newegg homepage.

Love the build, but at that price point you should be looking at the corsair carbide 500r case.

Had that originally but I was recommended to this one and it was a mid tower, which I was also told is quite small to work with.

I have an NZXT Phantom, its an absolutely awesome case, yes the Corsair 500r is nice too, but theres nothing thats going to re-invent the wheel about it over the Phantom.

Only thing holding me back from the phantom is the lack of USB 3.0. If it had that I would not think twice in buying it :??:

Actually, some of the newer Phantoms DO have a single USB 3.0, and one 2.0. Mine has one USB 3.0 on the front panel, I'm not sure when they started shipping them that way, but I can say I bought mine March-April-ish of this year from TigerDirect.com and it shipped that way.

Yea, Corsair makes really nice cases if you're into the "plain" look. By plain I mean, you don't want a ricey case.

Yeah to each his own when it comes to a case ( long as it does a good job cooling )

LOL You made me spill my drink, in my area japanese cars with "coffee can" mufflers and stickers are all the rage it seems...

:lol:  I know the feeling, I used to hang with that ricer crowd when I lived in PA. I have a 2003 Acura RSX Type S, but I swear its a nice looking car, no spoiler, black, no popcorn popper exhaust. Nice and subtle.

The Phantom case is great to work with, definitely up there with the higher end enthusiast cases. and yeah I guess it depends whether you want a Case that looks like a brick or a case that looks like a spaceship. I personally prefer bold, eye catching design so I chose the spaceship.

Thanks for the replies. Is it worth getting a full tower as compared to a mid tower, especially for my build?

Not really.

Are low profile memory's necessary in my build?

No. I can confirm that Corsair Vengeance standard height does not hinder the installation of a 212 evo.
