Hmm....the only thing i would check is the power supply...i am about to build on that is gonna run a PC power and cooling 750 Silencer...check out this link on it. it's a little bit more expensive...but for the money i feel its well worth it. i almost used that power supply (the OCZ), but after reviewing it the stability on the 750 is remarkable. I don't think the OCZ would be a problem...but i know the 750 would perform flawlessly.

That rig looks great. PSU maybe needs attention? Though that one you've picked out is pretty much top-drawer.

One thing to check into is the standard voltages on the OCZ memory. I know they tend to be high (~2.1v) and some 965 boards wont boot the first time with memory voltages over 1.8v.

Just a heads up, it may not be the case with that board or that memory, just something to look into.
