    Nice build btw i like it very much!
  3. Ok , you have selected some good parts and some questionable ones. I would not get a Rosewill psu for any reason and you are going to be doing SLI so I would go with this psu;

    I also see that you intend on overclocking so the cpu cooler you have selected is good and will certianly cool an overclocked cpu but the new Ivy Bridge cpu's don't overclock as well as the Sandy Bridge so you most likely won't be overcolcking very high and won't need a monster cooler.

    Your other parts are good and should work fine for you.

    I replaced the PSU with the one you suggested but I think I would like to keep the cooler for future proofing and to just have a nice cool system.
  5. As with any build the final choices are yours to make and in this forum we will suggest options to be considered so if you want to keep the cpu cooler then of course that is your choice. It is a very good cpu cooler to be sure and hopefuly there is a spot inside the case for the radiator , maybe up top.
