Basically was hoping for some input on ram, price wise between the 2 i put in the thinking is pretty much the same, but 1 is 1866mhz 8gb 2 sticks vs 1600mhz 16gb 4sticks

Gaming wise im worried about bottlenecking cpu or gpu any input or advice highly appreciated.

Thank you for your time and patience

You really like the air flow eight fans doesn't sound very quiet hehe.

As far as your RAM concern, you won't need 16GB of RAM for gaming. I'd opt for the 1866 8GB. In fact if you can find 1600Mhz 8GB RAM for cheaper I'd go with that since you won't even notice the difference.

True true but i will be getting a fan controller to manage the sound depending on temps + i tried to go for quit fans as much as i could.

Plus will be testing things to see if its too noisy or quite enough, might have to buy a few acoustic foam for sound proofing hopefully it helps, only thing i do not think i am able to cure / fix is the noise that will escape from the fan spots but rest i could try to cover.

If you got any advice on sound deadening id love to hear your input :D 

Thank you for your time and patience again :p

No clue on sound. My ears must not be good enough to really notice it making noise.

I'd recommend getting an Phenom II 1100T. It's $90 cheaper and performs almost as fast (within 5%) in most cases, and faster in some.

Not really for me it costs the same, and other then that its only faster now, hopefully MS will have a patch for windows 7 or other wise windows 8 will fix the issue of performance.

Btw i remember seeing somewhere a benchmark on windows 8 where 8150 even beat a Intel 980x but again on the windows 8. Until it becomes public BD will start to rule :D
