Looks like a very solid build.

Great build. Nothing wrong with the 212 Evo but I would go with a Cryorig C7. Better perf for around the same price.

Thanks, quick noob question, will the radeon 480 fit with this case plus the components. Also I cant seem to find a UK seller selling the Cryorig C7

The 480 should definitely fit no problem but you'll need to remove some of the drive bays. Maybe check a video review/breakdown for that case and make sure you don't have to remove a whole block of HDD's, and that you'll have enough space for HDD's/SSD's. Some cases each drive bay is separate and removable but some you need to remove a whole chunk of 3-4 bays.

But the case specs are:

MAXIMUM VIDEO CARD LENGTH

177mm With Drive Cages

317mm Without Drive Cages

And TechPowerup lists the 480 at 241 mm in length. And don't worry too much about being able to find the C7. I'm in the US so I can't help much but the 212Evo is very close.

Btw PCPartPicker automatically checks compatibility at the top of the build page. "Compatibility Check: No issues/incompatibilities found." If you pick a case that's too small it'll tell you in big red text.

Then why go for a different cooler for a budget first build? It's great for it's cheap price
