How come you went with the 750 W PS if the build requires 400 to run? Wouldn't 550-650 be enough w/ power to spare?

Interesting! I would spend more money on the gfx rather than cpu. I always thought gfx had a higher impact on the overall computer performance. As far as noise/heat, it was pretty minimal when I had the stock cooler/cpu fan. Heat reached up to 70ish max. Since then, I've installed a water cooling radiator/corsair h100, and the highest CPU temp I've seen is 60. It's usually 50~60 during gaming.

I thought this build was good. It's my first time building a PC, and it started up just fine. I've been running it the past couple days, and temps have been normal. I did have trouble getting the ODD bay out. The screws just wouldn't come out behind the bezel cover. The cover could be smoother to take off and on, but it's not too bad.

Since I can't get the bay/brack out, will I still be able to add a fan or two on the top later?
