Question Need Help Deciding On Last Mintue Gaming Build

I just have a last minute question or two before I order my build.

I was doing some digging on the internet and found that the cm stacker 832 will not for a true or tuniq 120 with the side fan bracket. Does anyone know if it won't fit with the fan bracket at all, or just when you add in all 4 fans? I was thinking the ZALMAN CNPS9700 Newegg.com - ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - Retail,
but want others opinions on this matter.

Also what 500gb hard drive is the best for gaming? I was thinking between the: (What is the difference between the Samsung F1 and T series?)
Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3500320AS 500GB
Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3500320AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD753LJ 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD753LJ 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
SAMSUNG SpinPoint T Series HD501LJ 500GB
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG SpinPoint T Series HD501LJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD5000AAKS 500GB
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

Thanks for the helps guys

It doesn't fit w/ fans installed. You could just install 3 fans though and leave that space open for the cooler. Choose one of the two 32mb HD's

Choice number 1 for hard drives looks like the best for the price. With 32mb of cache for 10 bucks more than choice 3.
