    Actualy, you already have a verry good choice. Just be sure thats you mother board have a 3.0 USB conector, PCIe 3.0 and check the max frequency of RAM memory (on Motherborad and on RAM). I indicate a 1600 or 1866Mhz RAM, because that influence a lot on rendering. And be sure: your build is very very good. if you can, use a ssd storage for rendering and get a little more speed power.

    Thats realy good, but I recomend change the AirCooller for a WaterCooller. With this price $60,00 you can get a Corsair H60, thats have a realy better performance.
  4. i believe the dark rock pro 3 is dual tower heatsink, and there is no way a h60 beats it in performance

    I picked low profile ram as well, for the compatibility with the cooler.

    Also - Reason for a cooler like that - my guess is that you will overclock since you got the 4770k, if you do not want to oc, just change the cpu to Xeon E3 1230 V3 - That cpu is non overclockable, but it is not just server gpu, please go take a read about that particular xeon and you will see before trying to correct it.
  5. If you need quad-channel RAM later on, you should consider a 4820k or even Haswell-E, which will have DDR4 support. With 32 GB of RAM, you will need Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
