The V6 is great, but the Hyper 212 EVO is cheaper and just as good. Build looks good. I can't see a single thing wrong with it. Also, did you build this yourself or was it prebuilt?

Building it myself.. It will actually be my first time. I am going to have someone helping me out that is pretty proficient but I just wanted to ensure I got the best deal for the money. I had heard the Cooler Master HAF 912 was mediocre with default case fans for cooling so that's the reason I upgraded the case fans.

Just switch out a Hyper 212 EVO, and if you want, get another fan to add to the EVO. Otherwise, great build.

I have the CM HAF 922 case and V6GT and they offer great cooling. I would stick with the 212 EVO as the V6GT interferes with RAM and has an awkward mounting system but would consider the HAF 922. Everything else looks great.
