For the fan controller, the Lamptron FC5 V2 seems good plus it looks great in the 650D. I personally own a Scythe Kaze Master Pro and I have no real issues with it so far.

Looks like you've got yourself a nice build going on! You'll love the ssd and the keyboard. I own both of them (64GB ssd however)

I believe your push pull question depends on where you plan on mounting the radiator. you'll want one side fully dedicated to push and one to pull.

Ah, so thats what the above poster was referring to? Ya, i know 2ms is better, but most monitors rated in 2ms gtg, which is kinda pointless anyways. Hopefully performs well, if i see any ghosting ill return and grab a 2ms.

Gonna try and squeeze the rad up top in my 650d, if it won't fit with the four fans, ill do two fans up top outside of case / rad / two fans on bottom of rad. Ok so the left side could be intake, right side could be exhaust. I hope so about the keyboard, was actually tough with all that's out there tbh. thanks for info man

Ya, was actually looking at the Lamptron. The touch screen fancy dancy ones catch my eye, but i feel in long run the knobs going to last longer, and seems they hold more fans

Last night mouse and tool kit actually came in, ups guy just dropped by garage so didn't notice until checked tracking.
