My System Specs

Default

Based on all the advises I got, I think my refined build would probably be like this

Mobo: asus p8z68 v-pro
CPU: i7 2600k
GPU: asus gtx560 dcII oc
PSU: corsair HX650
HDD: some WD 1TB
SDD: Intel 80gb 320 series
Memory: kingston 4gbx2 8gb 1600mhz hyper x
Cooler: Noctua NH-D14

these would probably be my build, so now there is one left, casing. Is there any casing recommended from you guys? I am worry of the Noctua cooler can't fit it as it seems quite big to me. I was plan to get cooler master USP 100 or elite 430.

Get a HAF 912 or a Corsair 400/500R.
The build looks solid, just make sure the GPU is a 560Ti.

I am concern that whether a Noctua NH-D14 can fit into HAF912 with fans on the top? I've done some research on it and some said it fits well because it fits Silver Arrow and Scythe S-Flex fans which has similiar size to NH-D14 ( I guess? ). but I am worry about will it affect the airflow in the system?

The only direction where the NH-D14 is problematic is the RAM and mobo heatsinks, It'll fit with the case fans just fine with enough room to spare.

It's not a big deal if you could not fit regular sized fans at the top, thinner fans could be placed at the top. Remember, hot air rises or whichever direction there are exhaust fans, so there is no need to worry about the airflow. I would prefer to get the 400R if I were you, my personal choice.

I've decided to get Corsair 400R and fit NH-D14 in it, hopefully it is fit
