Looks good, have you checked if the EVO will fit in the case? Not sure of Dimensions

I have seen quite a few builds with people using the EVO in that case, and I don't if I mentioned it, but I will be using a Bitfenix Recon Fan controller in place of an optical drive. Also, the two storages will be at the bottom near the PSU, so nothing should be in the way.
