So I am building a computer in the next month. Just want to make sure all of my parts will fit well.

Specs so far

Asus Sabertooth X58 socket type 1366
G Skill Ripsaw 8gb
Intel Core I7 920 2.67 ghz
Corsair TX650 PSU
PNY Gefore GTS-450
Nividia Geforce GTS-450 just Nividia brand
M Audio Delta
Cooler Master V6
WD raptor drive 3.5
Seagate barracuda 500gb 3.5 drive
seagate barracuda 2.5 1 tb drive
Hitachi 160gb 2.5 drive

My case is a mid tower case. Will I be able to sli my two Gts-450s, As well as installing this godzilla! Cooler Master V6 on my Asus Sabertooth motherboard? Yes I like to use Dinosaur references I cant help myself!

Also does my build look solid?

Why are you building this? Where do you live?

What I mean is that all these parts are super old. Are you getting them second hand or something? It's not a good build unless there are some unknown constraints. Please share: desired monitor resolution, intended usage (gaming?), budget, and time frame.

Yes, the motherboard will fit in the case just fine.

I am switching my processor to a different motherboard and smaller case. I am salvaging parts from a 2 year build. On my current build I can play all games at max settings just fine. I dont see the point in getting a sandy bridge or new mobo just yet. Maybe in the next 2-3 years.

I can play games at 1920-1200 hdmi
I can play Mass effect 3 at max settings
I can play BF3 at high settings
I dont see a point in upgrading the mobo and processor just yet. My build can play any games that are out.

Not worth it then, stick with your PC.

Yeah, it wasn't clear if this was something you were planning to build or something you already had.

well base on its dimension it should fit well, i haven't tried that case yet but maybe i should check it out,

ahahaha and i was wondering when you said building i thought you were buying all of those and i was like get x79 >.< but then after some reading down here i see that you already have it, just like transfering stuff but still such an insane rig

one last question. I made my final decision and op for the liquid cooling system. I am going with the Intel BXRTS2011LC Liquid-cooled Thermal Solution For the LGA2011 Socket http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Will this fit in my case just fine? Kind of a noob question to ask but when I buy components I make sure everything needs to work right. Does it come with thermal solution or do I need to purchase more just be safe?

It will fit. If you refer to the CM Storm Enforcer Owner's thread I posted, some people are using an H100 in that case, which has a radiator about twice as big as the Intel you've chosen.

I agree, go with the H100. I'm using the H60 and it works well, and it has the same form as that Intel one. Any ways they are around the same price.
