great build but-
1-i am not a big fan of kingwin,better go with this SS strider gold unit-
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
raven is a great case,i won't suggest any change.
closed loop coolers are overpriced and stock fans are crap,better go with a good aircooler,something like this-
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
a single 680 will struggle at your resolution,better get two of them as you can afford ;) 
you have good SSDs.
all the best,enjoy.

I plain to overclock the CPU to around 4.8ghz also the last pc i had I had a big AIR cooler and it covered 2 of my ram slots so i was trying to avoid that. Also I only play on 1 of my monitors not all 3 I will be getting a second 680 once i can They just have been out of stock since release :)  Also Do you know how the top fin goes on the Riven case with all you cables connected?

i don't like hxx or hxxx coolers because you have to pay a high price for a bit better performance but still if you want silence then you have to put your own aftermakret fans as stock fans are crappy.if you are willing to pay then go ahead otherwiese silver arrow will easily take you to 4.8ghz-

for a single monitor,a single 680 will max out anygame with playable fps.
raven is one of the finest cases,it has great aesthetics,cable management and cooling.

Good job, build looks great, but here are a couple suggestions:

- You might want the ASRock Extreme 6. Benefits aren't huge, but you'd get 8 DIMM slots and more USB 3.0 ports. It's only $25 more, which is nothing for a $2000 build.
- Get a Seasonic Gold or Platinum power supply

With that budget I'd spend a little more on the case, but that's up to your preference. My top recommendations would be for the Silverstone Fortress FT02. It is amazing according to everyone who has used it, and it will take great care of your parts without making noise for many years:

the Corsair Obsidian series is solid and professional:

it's only 1 degree behind the D14 when tested under load and it is still 54C,which is amazing for for a cheap cooler.


interesting...why would anyone pay 2 1/2 times more for the D14, which is just a shade better!

you said to recommend case's ok i personally love cooler master case's, i am using the HAF 922 its great for me i over clock my cpu so i need good airflow so its great for over clocking. that's a full tower they got mid towers and all.

http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Advanced-SuperSpeed...


please don't take it in offensive way but everything we owned or own is not the best,in this case,phantom is a reasonable choice.it looks great,enough space,good cooling and a lot more than what you expect from a $130 full tower.spending anything more is definitely not worth because a high end(and more expensive) case won't add extra framerates.i hope you got my point :)
