Default Love at first sight!

I was going to make myself a budget gaming PC and was going to fit it all in either a HAF912 and load it up with 2 more 200mm fans, or just get the zalman z9 plus. But then I came across this case, that isn't even available yet, which I fell in love with instantly (Azza Toledo 301). The price is right, the air flow seems bang on, only problem is I don't know what the CPU heatsink clearance is and as it's so new there isn't any documentation I could find on that.

My question is would an OCZ Vendetta 2 on an MSI NF750-GD55 fit in this case with the stock side fan on and if so in which orientations?

Case: Azza Toledo 301
Heatsink: OCZ Vendetta 2
Motherboard: MSI NF750-GD55

Here's some links just in case:
Motherboard: MSI Global ? Mainboard - NF750-G55
Heatsink:OCZ Vendetta 2 CPU Cooler *EOL - OCZ
Case:www.azzatek.com

And my build so far:



(still haven't decided if i want to go with a dual hoping for unlock, a quad, or a hexacore for some minor video editing I might be doing)

P.S. if I get this case I will be populating the 2 vacant 120mm slots with blue led coolermaster fans @5$ each ;)

For the case I don't know but I am going to make an honest suggestion.
Do not get a Refurbished PSU. Espically a refurbished OCZ PSU.

Grab something like a Seasonic 750W, corsair HX750, Silverstone Strider Plus.

Never let the PSU be the item you go cheap on. It is the cornerstone of your computer.

it looks nice, not sure on build quality etc.

from the other thread i see youve already placed your order. the 750i is a decent board, but
i wouldve gone sb 2500k for the build with a smaller psu for a single card..but thats just me :)

You would do just fine with a quality 850w psu running 2x 560s and an am3 chip. I would almost go as far as to say that 750w would be enough, but don't quote me on that.

I run a pair of 460's, an i7, 4 Blacks, and a myraid of case fans, card readers, and other accessories on a 650W HX. With only 10-15W increase with 560's you could do it on a 750W easily.

ST is right on everything above. If you go cheap on PSU and it decide to die and take your mobo/gpu/HDD in the run you will be very annoyed to have saved 30$ on a cheap PSU because now you are going to spend a lot of money and time on RMA. I can't say how many time a week we say this exactthing but people never listen and the same story always happen -_-

For the case, it's the way to chose one. You have to fell in love with your case since it's the thing you always see. Happy that you like your;)

are u saying the psu I finally went with:
XFX 850W PRO850W Core Edition Single Rail ATX 12V 70A 24PIN ATX Power Supply 80PLUS Bronze - DirectCanada
wasn't a good choice or are you still talking about that OCZ psu? should I change to this:
Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan - DirectCanada.

thing is i didn't want to stress my psu too much, didn't want it to become a hot brick with a fan going crazy as soon as i start gaming...

im pretty sure their talking about the OCZ S-Stock you were going to originally get

That XFX PSU is a fine unit and is enough power for a future AMD/560 SLI setup

Hehe, I was that way about my case... I saw the NZXT phantom and couldn't get myself to buy anything else (purely based on looks)! The case just looked amazing and had awesome fan options/controller. I had to wait 3 weeks from when I could have built my rig so that I could get the case... Gave me a good opportunity to open bench everything.
