Hey all = )

About to be the proud new owner of a white NZXT Phantom case. Should be arriving on the 9th of June along with the rest of my build. Worked my a** off and have been saving for forever now. Basically broke at the moment, but well worth it. Decided to do something for myself for once (thanks to wifey for the encouragement <3) Been doing a tonne of research and planning to build my system which will be my first ever Desktop PC build.

Looking to do a very nice window modification along with painting my fans to match the color scheme. Thinking black fan case, white blades. You'll see why when you see which cooler I'm using (Try to guess, lol) Going with a blue interior lighting also.

Tell me what you guys think of the system?

Case: White NZXT Phantom w/ Extra 2 x 200mm Fans + 1 x 140mm Fan
Power Supply: OCZ ZX-Series 1000w PSU
Motherboard: Asus Rampage III Gene Micro ATX
Processor: Intel i7-960 3.20 GHz CPU
Cooler: Noctua NH-U9B SE2 CPU Cooler
Memory: 12GB Corsair Dominator 1600MHz RAM w/ Cooler
Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Superclocked
Solid State Drive: OCZ Vertex-2 80GB SSD
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200Rpm SATA II HDD
Optical Drive: Asus DVD±RW Drive OEM Black 48x CD 24x DVD
Monitor: Samsung PX2370 23" LED Backlit Full HD Monitor
Mouse: Razer Naga MMOG Laser Gaming Mouse
Keyboard: Alienware TactX Backlit Gaming Keyboard
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium
Sleeving: NZXT White Individually Sleeved Premium Cables (Mobo, GPU, CPU)
Lighting: NZXT Sleeved Blue LED Case Light Kit 2 Meter

Again, everything will be arriving with the case on the 9th. Have to put it together myself. Like I said, this is my first PC and I've never done anything like this before. All of what I know is basically from doing lots of research, reading lots of reviews and observing lots of builds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My biggest concern is, will the Noctua CPU Cooler fit with the side 192mm fan in use? From what I know, it's a tight fit, but it's shorter than the regular Noctua coolers as well as most other tower coolers, being 125mm or so from what I researched.

Any criticism / comments?
Anything constructive is more than appreciated = )
Thanks guys and glad to be a part of your fine club honoring this spectacular product! Luvving all the builds!

Might have been covered before... but I had a quick question. I installed a h50 cpu cooler today around 4pm, on my 2600k. I installed it on my rear nzxt fan blowing out, in a push pull config with the corsair fan pushing into it. I ran prime 95 at 100% load for an hour and one core touched 61c very briefly the rest stayed in the 50's. Right now, my ambient temp in my room is 29c and my cpu is a few below 40 at idle. Sound high? My phantom is sitting on my floor, with all the fans maxed out... about 5 or 6pm i was sitting at 25c at idle. btw, I didn't OC or anything.

My H70 with push pull in my hot ass room idles as 35C in my old apartment it ran at about 30C idle. I think it has more to do with your room temp then it does your cpu running hot. You will almost never max out your cores anyway so those high 50s really dont mean much.

The red looks awesome,but I think something is throwing off the interior color. Not sure if it's your mobo color or what bro. A tad bit more cable management won't hurt either.
