Hey, if you want a magic solution that just does all the work for you, all you care is "hey, I have 1000 $ to spend, just give me the best configuration for my money, mirror-mirror on the wall type of thingy" then you are looking in the wrong place. Of course it is not 100% bulletproof and you'll have to put to work the gray matter that you have combined with a little common sense. I have just shown that the site DOES check the size and the combination of parts that you choose, giving you a pretty noticeable warning in case you are selecting incompatible components. Anyway it should be use merely as a guide, and it's recommendations taken with a grain of salt. As I said before, the site returns pretty decent results, and used wisely is very helpful for most of the cases. They are a business, so they are liable in court, this is why they have the small disclaimer below. Kudos to them anyway for the implementation, if you think you can do better give it a shot.

The 750W psu is for SLI i think. Other than that I'd get shorter RAM and call it a day.

@flopticalcube @Gmt @Allanitomwesh I appreciate all your input and help smile.gif. I did a lot of research and I found that I have clearance to install tall ram onto a z97 motherboard. However, I can only install it onto the 1 and 2 sockets, and not the 4th one (the one closest to the CPU) because the cooler almost goes halfway above that socket. This picture shows what I'm talking about: http://i.imgur.com/huxZ5ae.jpg.

If I ever think I'll need 16 gigs of RAM, then getting the 212 evo would be a problem. Fortunately I think I'm safe w/ 8 gigs of ram for awhile. I could also get a liquid cooler on sale in the future to resolve any future clearance issues.

EDIT: I also wanted to add that I finished ordering all of my parts today. You guys are the best biggrin.gif, thanks for the help. Once I put the thing together and have time to get some temps I'll put up a post w/ some pics.

You can choose a Noctua cooler like the NH-U12S, and Noctua lists all the compatibility issues with motherboards on their website. No other manufacturer does this.

Shorter RAM would've been an easier solution. All the best with your rig take lots of pics.

Actually for the speeds I wanted at the price I wanted picking RAM was a little difficult >_<. Will take lots of pics smile.gif.

And may we know what parts did you end up choosing for your order in the end?

anyone running two GTX 970 cards with open cooler design with either case? because the TDP is low, i'm wondering if it would be possible.

I'm planning a similar build when i get from holiday in the USA (early December) with 2x970's... but even though the power draw on the 970's is quite low, they still run quite hot and from my research you almost definitely want blower style coolers if going SLI in SFF case

@Gmt Sorry for the late reply, I've been pretty busy. I ended up going w/ the same list I posted previously, but here it is for your convenience: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/PoombyBear/saved/VNLdnQ
