    Nice build, I had the red one but sent it back unused as I was a bit concerned about the limited air flow. I went with the Phanteks case in the end.

    Thanks mate! I found a super good deal on some Avexir Core Series white cameo edition with LED DDR3 2400 RAM and bought 16gb worth at 4x4gb! :) These should add a nice bling factor to my setup and match the Asus Z97 Sabertooth Mark S motherboard that features the same white cameo design.

    Here's 2 pics I grabbed from Google for an example. I'll add pics when they arrive & I install them. :D

    :D Yeah, the Raiden RAM with the lightning look real nice! My only drawback was the blue color on the RAM, or I might have been interested. Blue's not bad, but the white cameo on the Core Series I liked much better.

    I've read up that the prices on RAM are the lowest they've been in 26 months and I got the 16gb (4x4gb) of Avexir RAM for $39.99 for each set! Talk about a good deal! :D

    That is insane pricing, yeah demand has been very low for Ram, expect the Christmas period to ramp up demand now that Skylake has joined Haswell - E on the DDR4 bandwagon. DDR3 will slow production so less supplies could drive up prices as stock depletes.

    I seemed to get one of the H440 cases that has the burnt out or dimmed LED lights. :( It happened a few months ago and just learned last month that NZXT will send out replacement & better LED logos and lights if you so happen to have this problem. I contacted them and they are out of stock of the replacement parts and will contact me when they receive them back in supply.

    Bummer I know! Glad I searched the net about the issue before it was too late. :)

    Lucky !!!! I think changing my big Cooler Master HAF X for a case like that....smaller. Before my 2 GTX 980, 2 GTX 480 (HOT !!!! :D) was inside the HAF X. Now, i dont need alot of cooling for my GTX's....

    So, how is the paint on this case...and the panel are solid? The paint on the HAF X never "chip".

    And your Avexir, do you try to overlock pass 2400 Mhz? (I am curious...) ;)

    The HAF X is a beast of a case! :)

    Everything about the NZXT H440 is excellent! The body, construction, glossy paint, size, inside room and overall awesome looks are just great! With the 3 NZXT 120mm fans in the front there's plenty of good airflow too.

    I haven't OC'ed the Avexir RAM......yet! But really see no reason why they couldn't be pushed further, if I decided to.
