if intense gaming u can follow my budget build
here's the pic
450
u can put 120mm fan besides the GPU using double sided tape or velcro to make it stands still...
and can use my fan setup
front 120mm intake
bottom 120mm intake
side 120mm intake
top 2x200mm outtake
rear 120mm outtake
the results i have with room temp 29C when idle is 35C average for CPU/GPU and load CPU 50C, GPU1 68C, GPU2 65C

That's a shame, any known CPU coolers that aren't so big that they give enough space for a 200mm side fan? It's not like it's being overclocked so I don't need anything big, just something to replace the god awful Intel Stock coolers.
And yeah, it's a gaming PC. Using a GTX 560 and an i5 2500.

Debating between installing rad in bottom or top? How do you think Orange trim with black grills and orange Led fans would look on a white case? Do you think that would be 2 many colors? Thoughts please.

well any CPU coolers height that is not exceeding 150mm will allow u to fit side fan 200mm and, but i would recommend +- 120mm heatsink to avoid turbulence like noctua NH-U9B SE2.
or u can go with water cooler and u shall have no issue with the side fan.
also id recommend not to have 2x120mm side fan install, its useless, mess up the airflow

You mean the 2 120mm fans that come with it on the side?

450

What temps do you see running IBT with AVX max memory? I really can't believe you're getting better temps (vs pulling in outside cold air) blowing warmed air through your rads. Have you tried running your setup pulling air in?

Imo you got it backwards. Not sure if you tried the rads as intake but its normally better that way. Your temps sound good though.

Looks good man, you put the hard drive bay upside down compared to how others have done it, might save you a tad bit or room though. I like the build. Those 480's must get hot though, they look thirsty!!!
