Just trying to get a little feedback on my options and which way to go with this system build been reading reviews until I'm blue in the face.

CPU - i7 3930 - I already have the CPU so don't try to tell me not to get it.

Motherboard - ASRock X79 Extreme6 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH

SSD - OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Case - SilverStone RAVEN RV02-BW Matte black 0.8mm Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case or Corsair Carbide Series 500R White Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Cooler - Undecided

What is coming over from my current system is HD 5870 & CORSAIR TX650, Now I haven't really decided if I want to or need to upgrade at this point my Video card handles everything I throw at it so I'm fine with it for now I might change that out later.

So any opinions on Liquid or Air? I live i Arizona so I like to keep my system cool and I'm not extremely worried about noise level however I'm still skeptical about liquid.

You also need low profile ram so it doesn't conflict with heat sink Ram:CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CML16GX3M4A1600C9

That memory isn't listed as being compatible on either Asrocks site or Corsairs site and at the same time the motherboard I went with isn't listed on Corsairs site which makes no sense as the other versions of it are. I'll take the low profile ram into consideration sounds like I need to decide on the cooler first and then go from there.
