this is my first time build a proper gaming system, and I wanted to ask if im missing anything here or if there is any compatibility issues with parts I've picked and the phantom case. someone on a different forum suggested I get a cable extender for the CPU power to psu because of the case size, but they weren't entirely sure, so I thought I might as well as the owners of these great cases if there is any recommended things to purchase with the phantom.
The build:
Intel Core i5 3570K
M.B: ASRock Z77 Extreme6 Motherboard
RAM: G.Skill Sniper F3-12800CL9Q-16GBSR1 (4x4GB) DDR3 OR G.Skill Ares F3-1600C9Q-16GAO 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 or corsair vengeance low profile kit.
Graphics: 670GTX, probably either the ASUS or Gigabyte Overclocked Cards.
HDD/SSD: Crucial M4 SSD 256GB
HDD 2: Seagate Barracuda 3TB ST3000DM001
Optical D: Lite-On IHES212 12X Bluray Combo
Case: NZXT Phantom USB 3.0 Case White
PSU: Silverstone Strider Plus 850W
CPU cooler: Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler
Side panel: NZXT Phantom White Windowed Side Panel
An assortment of fans, consisting of: BitFenix Spectre Pro 140mm Black Tinted Red LED Fan $19.00 x1 NZXT FS-200 LED Rifle Bearing Fan Red $29.00 x2 BitFenix Spectre Pro 120mm Black Tinted Red LED Fan $19.00 x3
Things im still not 100% on:
Which ram to get? (looking at a 16GB kits)
Whether the case needs fan filters or not?
If there are any cable extenders or extra longs cables that need to be putchased?
Cheers and thanks in advance.

Nice specs! My only concern is the hard drive, I havent had good luck with seagates and that one only comes with a one year warranty. Seagates are priced low, but I think you would be better off with a Hitachi 3tb that comes with a 3 year warranty which can be viewed online here http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0354808 ,it must be bought in store though.

Also My 8pin reached but just barely, so it varies by power supply.

Thanks for the help guys....probably should mention I live in Australia, so buying stuff from microcentre might be a bit difficult :-P

I'll look into my hdd choices as such, as I just need a 3tb for backups, and I'll remember to get a cable extender for the CPU power.
In regards to the fan filters, is it worth getting one for the side 120mm fans? And if so, do you get 2 120mm filters or one joint 120mm filter that's made for when you have 2 120mm fans right next to each other?

Yeah microcenter might be difficult haha, I'll see what I can find for Australia. As for the fan filters the only one I use is the one for the power supply, other members should be able to help you some more with regards to those. Also welcome to the club!

The side fans are already filtered! (:

I've never had an issue with Seagate drives, personally.

The caviar greens are great for storage that does not need to be accessed quickly. I have a 1tb green in my build right now as a server drive.

I personally prefer my XFX PSUs. Made by SeaSonic, single rail, and ultra long cables to reach anyhing. Come in modular and non-modular.

I just got a Phantom from ebay and he gave me filter and extra fan.

How do you guys align your filter?

Case > filter > fan?
Or Case > fan > filter?

It also has an extra 200mm filter, am I supposed to use it for the top 200mm fans? Or what?

I have one for the side panel 200mm
post #12059 of 15187
fan > filter > Case

As your sucking air in it will trap dirt in the filter before it touches the fan itself. Cleaning fans can be a paint at times.

The phantom comes stock with 2x 200mm fan filters, the preinstalled 200mm fan does not have on installed.
