  1. Usage? Budget?
  2. I was wondering the same thing.

    But initially - that low voltage RAM will not mix well with Sandy Bridge / Ivy Bridge. You need 1.5V. And don't waste money on the H100 - the H100 is the very low end of the liquid cooling spectrum. Either use a real liquid loop or don't use one at all.
  3. If you really want WC, get the Rasa or Raystorm kits.
  4. Yep, 1C is not worth the extra for the H100.

    I'm thinking of getting the Swiftech Edge HD but that's a long way off. :lol:

    Gaming, video editing, lots of photo shop and general web browsing.

    What about the rampage iv formula? (mobo)

    Major overkill, and you'll require a case that supports XL-ATX boards on top of that. It's not worth the premiums and you only need it if you're building a 4 x SLI setup - which you most likely won't be.
  11. For photoshop and some video editing, the X79 socket is overkill and not wise. Better off with LGA 1155.

    I was originally going to the rampage iv extreme but i only opted against it because i heard it has reliability issues wich i dont want with a 400 mobo and i dont mind spending $200 more for a 4 gb gtx 680 because i will use surround And want to get good preformance as opposed to a 2 gb gtx but the build he gave me was good

    I was thinking about the 2011 socket, just to overkill for me but thank you. The build you listed would probly be what i get minus the case and psu.
  14. Will this psu work with i7 2700 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371050
    I only ask because this one says compatible with i7 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006
