That case is so unnecessary. I have a HAF X and it has so much space for watercooling, it even has holes for tubing. You'll also save about $200 if you buy a HAF X or similar case.

For the money frozen CPU wants for that case you could buy the best caselabs case and it would be so much better in every way plus have some cash leftover.

I still don't really see the point for a custom case.

You can mount a radiator inside of a HAF X if you remove the fans from the top.

Awesome suggestion on the Case Labs Def looking into them. I have also updated the main list with a few minor adjustments biggest is the video card.

Dont get that GPU!!! I would go with a 3gb 580 ($100 less than the one you linked) and get an aftermarket EK (not nickle) block or a koolance block.

Also you forgot to edit the hard drives. With this budget you might want to look into compression fittings. They are more expensive but you don't need a clamp for them and look MUCH better than barbs and clamps. And don't forget to swap out the power supply for something like the AX850 or the XFX Pro850 which is another solid choice. And you never answered why you needed that much RAM??

I agree. 8gb is overkill but like i said earlier memory is cheap so why not just grab 8gb. The power supply is the next big place you could cut some major money off of this rig.
