Hi guys, I'm finally building an entire new rig over the next month (Ordering PSU/Video card next week) and hoping for "okays" suggestions and looks overs. The Video card is 100% For sure, the 4770K is also 100%. Everything else is up for debate.
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146068 . I've personally set up rigs in this case before, and it's alright. Not exactly my style but I'm really bad at picking cases. However I wanted lower $100s and PLENTY of room. Would have preferred like a nice LED Fan guage or something. Would -really- love case input. I prefer black and blue or red type cases. Darker colors.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157372 Mobo. Was a tough choice between this and Asus. I never followed 1150 until recently so don't know how they all perform. I don't overclock often but sometimes I do. Need 2 PCI-E 3.0 (prefer x16/x8 or x16/x16). Would love inputs on 1150 Mobos.

Honestly the lights don't mean anything to me, the unconnectable cords and 1KW ware amazing. Curious as to reviews of better suggestions? I -didn't- wanna spend this much on a CPU so if anyone has good alternative? I just really hate routing. But I'll probably sink a lot of time in it with this one.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147193 Really excited to try new 840. I currently have a 128GB old Samsung in here which I'll probably keep as Main ans use 256 for gaming.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233360 RAM. THIS is where I got torn as well. I saved $40 by not getting the Vengeance but I'm not overly familiar with timing or latency. I did aim for 1866 because 2400 is retardedly expensive. Would prefer to stay under $160. And no, it doens't have to be 16GB. if you can find AMAZING RAM for less than $160 and it's only 8GB, that's fine too.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835146007 Side fan for the case I got.
Any suggestions? Would really love some input, on any of the devices. RAM/Case/Mobo I'd -really- appreciate some input, those are my weakest areas.
I truly appreciate anyone's thoughts! Thanks! (Ordering Video card next week with PSU and then ordering rest of rid probably mid September.)
Thanks! (Hoping links work)
