  2. Looks solid, but I can say from experience there is always a chance that Cooler gets in the way of your RAM (I have that Cooler and that RAM, but a different MOBO). Always a good thing to check, seeing as you only have 2 slots.
  3. Ahhh what mobo did you purchase?

    Nice bundle find. Saves me about $15. Are corsair PSUs just as good as Antec PSUs?

    Yep. Corsairs are great psu's...manufactured by Seasonic. The only junk Corsairs are the "Builder Series" which are manufactured by CWT.
  6. Corsair and Antec both make high quality PSUs. I'd put them in one of the top tiers.
