It largely looks like you've got this build pretty much figured out.

I mean, the quality of CPU cooler you get matters still and you should bounce your options off of us, but you're doing alright with it. Just make sure you get a good 120mm socket 2011 cooler.

Then you need to make sure the case can fit the cooler. And any RAM, as we discussed previously, will do. I don't trust Komputerbay, but you insisted that you do.

For the PSU, stick to Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX.

Your CPU cooler link isn't working, btw.

I figure your parts are...

Case: $70
RAM: $160 32GB (8x4GB) 1600CL9
Cooler: $50 Thermaltake Frio or similar http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
PSU: $60 ~600W Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX.

TOTAL: $340

The Antec Neo Eco 620C was recently $35 (after $20 rebate) on Newegg. That was a great deal. I guess you'll want to save $20 on your case to get it closer to $300 total. But the elephant in the room is your RAM. Just get 16GB (4x4GB) for now and add another 16GB if you need it or when you get $80 more. I wouldn't get a bad cooler as it will strongly impact your LGA 2011 overclocking.

It should ship with the latest bios. Contact the seller and see if they can confirm that or update it. If it doesn't, I think you're justified in returning it saying that it doesn't work. Sorry to hear about that.
