Case is generally up to you because there's a lot more personal preference. The H500 is a nice one though. You could look into dropping the 2TB HDD and instead getting a 2TB Intel 660p with the extra £50 spare.

The only thing with that is the CPU cooler is massive. I have it in my case and my RAM wouldn't fit in correctly. Instead of installing it in bay 1 & 3 for the DIMM slots I had to go 1 & 2 which isn't a bad thing. Just a word of warning! Solid cooler tho!!

What RAM do you have though? Shouldn't have issues with the DRP4 and Vengeance LPX.

Like you said though, just use B1+B2 DIMM slots, instead of A1+A2 if there are any compatibility issues.

Should be okay with the Corsair Vengeance LPX, I have 2x16GB and the same cooler and motherboard and I don't have any issues.

I have CORSAIR VENGEANCE RGB 2x 8GB sticks, and I'm very lucky that my 2 DIMM fits.

My CPU cooler is actually blowing hot air on my GPU rather than the exhaust on the back of my case because the cooler doesn't fit the other way around along with my RAM.
