True that. I've had four Seagates; two failed (one after a year, the other shortly after I got it), one was a disappointment (a SSHD that didn't work out for me), and one that is ok. Conversely, I've owned 15 WDs and only one failed (an early Green that had the head parking issue and failed after a little over a year).

What I said about the warranties still stands.
I had one Seagate 750GB do me wrong started clicking it was OEM wouldn't replace it so it's a nice coaster for my drinks now

Make sure your case will accommodate 140mm/280mm radiators. Many will have only 120mm/240mm mounts.

My case is this one Newegg.ca - CM Storm Trooper - Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with Handle and External 2.5" Drive Dock with Side Panel Window

I don't see any size for radiators for this case

It should work with 120/240/140/280.

Good choice, the radiator is 52% thicker than a 25mm rad.

I would test everything outside of the case with the stock cooler and make sure it boots to bios and everything is seen in the bios !

Very good idea to test it all outside the case, just in case. Here's how I did my current system before putting it in a case.

Do Not lay the board on the anti-static bag, it's conductive on the outside.
