Whats your take on my build?

I have looked through a few other builds in this price range and found we pretty much all share a lot of the same hardware> Just wanting to drop this here and see if there is anything I should be aware of. Im pretty sure every cable to hook this all together will be with it right? This will be my first PC build. And after 4 self reviews only added 100$ more to the budget for memory and a new HDD ( mine just failed the day before hah ).

I have heard that some people have had issues with the CPU cooler and the mother board ram location, and being able to properly place the rams where they need to be (#2&4). Anways hopefully get my new card in tomorrow so I can order all the parts to get building it!

Try the H7 it's a bit better than the 212 and I've heard there is no issue with RAM clearance.

Just my opinion but maybe a better case.

Nothing really wrong with the case, it's just an old case. Newer ones usually have better and easier cable management, build quality, features etc. Honestly it's up to you if you want to change it but here are a few options.

True, it only comes with one fan, the Acrylic version has another one but is more expensive. You really don't need more than 2 fans IMO as long as you have positive air pressure.

if you use the ram slots farther away from the cooler you will be fine, the build looks great btw. it is very well put together for a first build. that being said unless you really want it you could go with a $70 pair of ram. the difference between 2400 and 3200 is negligible for the price difference. try something like this http://pcpartpicker.com/product/4vWrxr/gskill-memory-f42400c15d16gvr

This is actually exactly what i put before changing after looking at benchmarks, this would have been the 2nd set i would have gone with under the tridentz. Thanks

EDIT#2: I see you guys might being to help find the happy medium of balance for hardware?

No, the MHz you see on the RAM is just to make it sound better. All jokes aside though, for the price it is not worth it. Except of course if you feel the need to save 1 second on the load time.

Very well, I can always upgrade later if i feel it needs to be slightly better. Thanks!
