Hope no one minds me asking, but i've got a few starter questions.

I've looked at every page of this thread, so i know you end up answering the same questions 10 times over! But I'd appreciate the help!

Firstly, does anyone mind look at the list below, and tell me what you think of it?

Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Corsair H100 92.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
OCZ Vertex 2 120GB 3.5" Solid State Disk
Asus Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card
NZXT Phantom (White) ATX Full Tower Case (Obviously!)
Corsair 750W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply
Samsung SH-B123L/RSBP Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer
Creative Audigy SE 7.1/PCI Bulk Sound Card

I also plan to pick the following up, mostly because i like things that beep, flash and make me pc look like a spaceship.

Akasa Interconnect Pro
Sentry LX LCD Meter
NZXT Hue


One of the first things i plan to do with my Phantom is cut the side out and replace it with a window. I've seen numerous photos on this thread but I'm still quite lost. What is the best width of Perspex to use, and also (i really hope i don't sound like an idiot here but i'm clueless) how do you attach the perspex to the side of the case?!

Anyway, thanks for any input offered.

You lot are a great inspiration to newbies like me, so keep up the amazing work!

Okay, first of all, I don't think you looked through all 1200 pages.
There are a couple problems with your build:
You will need the BIOS updated on any P67 or Z68 motherboard if you want to use gen 3 core i5s. Get a Z77 instead.
The Noctua NH-D14 is recommended over the H100
Corsair makes more than one 750 watt power supply, which did you choose?

That's my bad. I meant to put the Asrock Extreme Z77 Extreme4 (although i'm tempted by the extreme6 - it being only about £15 more expensive) I'd put the parts on partpicker and forgot to update it before i pasted it in.

Thanks for pointing it out, i would have probably been too excited to notice when i was buying everything.

I'm not sure about the Noctua, from what I've seen there is a bit of a debate about it. I like the fact that the Corsair is less bulky, and i think it looks smarter and smoother, from what i've seen it also offers slightly better performance; but i could be wrong about that. Thanks for the suggestion though, I'll look into it some more!

The power I'm going after is the Enthusiast Series TX750 V2. I don't think I'll need more than 750w.

In all honesty even a 650w is overkill for a single GPU system, but if you plan to have a second card later, it's nice to have the extra power.
