Samsung 840 120GB
WD Blue 1TB
Samsung DVD Burner
Fractal R4 (Had a good bit of budget left, figured I'd put it towards a good case)
I plan on getting everything off amazon. Total is about $1089. Any thoughts?
Looks great. I think that you will be really happy with this build. I really like the Fractal cases, I built a PC for my parents in a Fractal Design Arc Midi and I was really impressed with the overall quality of the case. So I can only assume that their bigger cases will be real nice to build in. Are you going to get the R4 with the window? Or are you really into the whole idea of the "silent" part of the one without the window? Also, I would get some extra 140mm fans if I were you, that case has a lot of fan options and 140mm will be quieter and move more air than a bunch of 120mm fans, since you have the option. One on the bottom, two up front, two up top and one out the back would keep that system cool, really cool.
Here are some suggestions for 140mm fans:Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet EditionCooler Master 140mmNoctua NF-P14 140mmNoctua NF-A14 FLX 140mm
Different price ranges, none of them bad fans imo.
Also setting up that 212 in push/pull will help keep that CPU crispy cool as well. You want a fan with a high static pressure for heat sinks.CM Blade Master 120mm PWMCorsair Air Series SP120
