For me as this is a premium build I would go with "the case" that will out last them all and go several mobo and cpu changes. Of course it's the 800D, go big or don't leave the porch as they say !

I have never held up the expectation that every single little thing is going to fall perfectly into place in the case.
Though I have been pleasantly surprised a few times, more often than not something has to be messed with.
Many people will give cases horrible reviews based on this alone, but given the near infinite number of hardware configurations going into them. It is near impossible for the manufacturer to predict everything.

...though with that 810 it really does seem like nzxt is making an honest attempt huh.

Unless you are like me and you hate ridiculously large cases. I like the styling of the 800D, but don't want or need a case that large.

And I always build a new computer and keep the older computer going and just upgrade something else in the house. So, I always go with a new case on a new build.

Very nice case...It will be almost a quarter of the budget....Not to pour cold water on the party, but how much over budget is this build?

The Chaser held my build with incredible ease. I will say the only negative might be that I don't know how well the optical drives are locked into position. Seems they come out of position easily while working inside the case. Maybe once te case is in position and panels on will be better.

Good luck with your new build !

Is the PSU you are looking at fully modular ? I was able to fit both cpu cables routing behind the board using an xfx platinum rated 1000 watt psu.

Read the feedback on the case since it has bottom psu location your power supply cables might not be able to reach, if you use the routing holes

Newegg.com - CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX850 (CMPSU-850AX) 850W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply Read the one egg reviews: one complains that the cables can't reach the top drives

If you max out the ram you can use the extra as a ram drive RAMDisk - Software - Server Memory Products & Services - Dataram

Rest looks good
