Another "First" build - primary usage is gaming

Hi- hoping to get a final look-over before I go ahead with the attached list.

Anything I should adjust? Anything just complete overkill? Thanks in advance for any help.

Is the Phanteks cooler necessary? Or would a 212 EVO be fine?

First time builder, really looking forward to putting together over the holidays.

Sweeeeeeet! Your build looks AWESOME! Sorry, I have a touch of SLI envy......

The Phanteks cooler is quieter, More efficient and more athletically pleasing. Whilst the 212 EVO is ok, the Phanteks cooler seems to provide more cooling performance at a quieter level making it the PCPARTPICKER cooler of choice in all their build guides!

Hope this helps!

Awesome thanks- should I be concerned at all about getting everything to fit? Phanteks cooler looked quite large.

You have Low Profile Ram so there should be no clearance isses there.

Also, the heat sink sticks out 171mm from the socket, so it should be accomodated my most cases, including yours.

However, I can't make any promises! If for some unforeseen reason the thing dosent fit, then RMA the cooler and get a new one like the EVO. However it is EXTREMELY unlikely that the Phanteks cooler won't fit, I'm just dishing out the facts my brother!

Actually, the fact that your case is a Phanteks case also, t would be really silly if there Cooler didn't fit, so I think your pretty safe!
