Hey guys, I've built a few PCs over the last couple of years but this is my first mATX build and was just wondering if anyone had anything else to add or would like to point out something I had missed. Thanks!

- Zalman cooler
+Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

Zalman cooler doesn't allow you to change the fans. I personally don't think they're very good. The CM one allow you to change the fans and can work with push/pull.

The whole build seem to be missing something. High RAM + i5-3570K CPU, yet no GPU? What's the build for? If it's not a gaming build, you don't really need those.

Hmm, thanks for the recommendation. I do have a GPU listed above (AMD RADEON HD 7970) since this is gonna be my LAN gaming rig.
