Build looks good. Although I've heard that you will lose some of your 3.5 HDD bays with a 5870 in the Antec 1200.

Looks like a pretty sweet setup.

Personally I wouldn't be able to afford parts like those.
I'll be getting the Phenom II X4 955 Black and I'll over clock it to 3.8Ghz.
It's not the CPU that's expensive it's the motherboards that are compatible with the core i7 cpus. (Especially since you are getting the 1366 socket)
The motherboard I plan on getting is about $80.
But I won't be running crossfire or SLI. Plus the AM3 socket will run AMD's next generation of processors. (May not be quite as fast but I'm poor)

Well i've done some research and I havn't heard/scene of a problem with the 5870, BUT there is an issue that if you leave all 3 front fans in there stock configuration you give up 2 HD bays. but with there being a total of 9 i'm not worried :)

Hope you get a good chip mate. Have the 965, can't get it above 3.6 prime stable. End up getting rounding errors at 3.7 and 3.8 or strange blue screen freezes around and after the 3.8 mark. I have the Mega Shadow so it's not heat, and the ram is on proper timings/voltages etc.

And Dewm must have some deep pockets.

Good to hear, a guy in another thread practically chewed me out for saying a 5870 would fit in the 1200 (I know it will), but he claimed his friend had to remove the entire cage. (which I know isn't true, or his friend is a real dope)

But I read that it may block a few HD bays, so I figured I'd just forewarn you, but yeah with 9 bays, it's a non-issue.

:S well according to several post in several forums it will fit.

and according to newegg it will fit. (I'm wondering about this dude that chewed you out, lol the 1200 is one of the biggest cases)

The 1200 has 12 drive bays, not 9. The three internal drive boxes that hold 3 drives each can be moved to any height so you can have one external DVD/Blueray and still mount 9 internal drives even if you do have to give up 2 slots for the GPU.

The 1200 is about 1.5 inchs deeper than a 900, and on a 900 there is only about 1/2inch overlap so I wonder if it really is an issue or if his friend had the internal fan bracket at the level and didnt realize its a clip on removable piece of plastic. He obviously doesnt understand the flexibility those moveable front fan/drive bays give you.

Mate, try loosening your ram timings... Rated speeds and voltages for the DIMMS don't play well with high Bclks.
i had issues without 5 mins in prime blend at 9-9-9-24-2T, raised each by 1 and they are cool now...

I'm at 3.8Ghz btw, using a 860.
