I'm looking for it to be a quiet build, next to silent. What's your thoughts?

Seems like you overspending on the case. Personally, I would get a much cheaper case and invest the rest to other areas of the build, preferably the GPU. But, If you deem it necessary to spend $259 out of $1551 on a case, thats your call.

WD Blacks can be a bit loud. Go for 3TB WD Reds for the extra robust enclosure. 

Stock Corsair case fans are pretty loud. Get some Noctuas.

Are you planning on replacing the stock graphics card fans as well?

The 212X is far from loud but isn't that quiet compared to something like a NH-u12s/u14s. 

The psu is overkill. The RM550 already has more than enough headroom.

for a more silence optimised case. look more for a fractal desing define R4 or a NZXT H440  they both ahve windowed versions and look quite neat !  (they are also cheaper than the 760T)

I've fallen in love with the 760T, gonna be my first full tower.


I might not go with Seagate, I've gotten 3 drives from WD so far and they've been great.


Not too sure about getting Noctuas, they might look a bit out of place with the green theme and especially with the window so big. Silence isn't such a large issue but I can fix it down the road, already taking a $300+ loan as it is.
