PSU: Seasonic X 850W
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X
Cooling: Noctua NH-D14 + Any really good 120mm or 140mm fan for bottom

So will the above parts all fit in the case and work? And will the NH-D14 fit if i mount it to blow air out the back? Im worried about the RAM heatspreaders being too tall and blocking it. And any recommendations for a 120mm or 140mm would be nice.
I have yet to assemble my own rig, still trying to get all the parts.

I purchased the exact same ram above to fit with Noctua NH-D14, IIRC others have done the same and i also checked for clearance/compatiablitiy online. Check for yourself, either do a search or check over at Noctua site.

PSU: At first i also had the x850 in my cart while it was on sale while i learned about all the hardware i was after. It went off sale then i later found the x750 on sale. From all info gathered and confirmation from other OCN members the x750 will work nicely with SLI 570's. Though the crazy power gamer in me ached for the x850, but reallisticaly it'll would have just been more money spent. If the difference in cost will give you added piece of mind then get the x850, but then your just disregarding and not drawing on the experience for those who are quite knopwledgeable in this site. The money could be put towards a quality monitor. Also you may just continue with a single card solution, thus making an x850 way overkill.

Do a little reading on the resolution you will be gaming at, and the FPS you like to see in the games you play. This will help you decide if you really need SLI or not. Keep in mind, ensuring yourself a little higher frame rates for any future games that may be released.

EDIT: oh i see you just went and started a new thread, you should have just continued with the other one. I also covered all this in the other thread a couple times if i'm not mistaken.

I think i got everything i need, but I still havent decided on a case. Could someone give me suggestions based on this:
Quote:
I'm thinking of keeping everything on this build, except i cant seem to find a case that is a perfect match for me. I would get the HAF-X, except that it is fricken huge and i'm assuming that it has a higher chance to fall over than a Mid-tower. Basically, i want a Mid-Tower version of the HAF-X, without sacrificing too many features. Im not interested in any older cases such as the HAF 922 or 912 since they dont have the same features as the newer HAF-X. Once i figure out what case to get, ill be ordering the parts ASAP. But that's only if i find out that the NH-D14 fits with the RAM i mentioned above in the first post. If your suggesting a case, please remember, High Air Flow. You may also try to convince me to get the HAF-X if you like.

What are Delta's? Are you talking about the fan? Those fans are a little bit loud for me.

Is the Storm Sniper still a good case, or are there newer cases that are better? By better i mean it has better air cooling potential, and more features would also be nice. Also, make sure its big enough for NH-D14 as well as future upgrades. Ill probably use the case 3years+ before i think about changing it. The max ill spend on the case will be $220, and that's will all fans. And thanks everyone for your help
