I would recommend getting the Corsair Vengeance low profile RAM. The full size vengeance memory with the heat spreaders can interfere with heat sinks and is only necessary when using water cooling. Other than the heat sinks they are identical

I too feared that the regular Vengeance and their Heat spreader's would cause some sort of an interference with my heat sinks, I'll change my order right now on Amazon, thank's! Other than that, is there anything in my spec's that'll cause problem's?

Not really a compatibility issue but I think that the CM Storm Enforcer is a really dumb looking case. It looks like it has down syndrome.

For the same price I'd recommend the Corsair Carbide Series 300R. It looks very similar and uses the same design as the extremely successful and highly regarded 800D full tower that I use, which I must say is absolutely outstanding in every aspect. For $40 more you can get the 500R which is a bit bigger and has more cooling in it than a nuclear power plant.

The best thing about cases is that they can be carried over from one computer to another. If you buy a good one now you'll be able to use it for your next build as well.

Thank's for the help Pinhedd! I really was considering getting the CM Storm Enforcer or a different case, but it's too late for that as I ordered the case and a side panel for a side fan :\ I'll most likely return the case and possibly get a better one as you recommended!

I just changed my order from the regular Corsair Vengeance to the Corsair Vengeance LP :D  And that'll be coming in with two day shipping thankfully!
