Thanks for the replies...
As for the cases, the ones you mentioned are up there, except from the HAF X Nvidia edition - a bit of an ugle number that one! But i guess so is the DF-85
Good shout with the Zalman cooler too.
As for the Mobo's, I seriously thought about the Rampage III, I just don't know if i'd use it to its full potential having limited overclocking exp. Will have to look into that ASRock too.
As for the Sandy Bridge, yes I have thought about that, do you think it will affect the price of the I7's?
Thanks for the suggestions
