Comments regarding my first build

I tested each part for compatibilty on pcpartpicker, but I would like to know if what I have is adequet or if there's anything i can do without.

  1. 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.
  3. Sounds like you have it all planned ;) let us know how it goes !
