It has been years since I built my own computer, so I need a little help figuring out a couple things. I'm going to be using the computer for recording/mixing audio with Pro Tools 10, so I need it to be fast, to stay cool, and to make as little noise as possible. I'm looking at the ASUS P9X79 WS for the motherboard (SSI CEB), the Intel i7-3930K cpu., and an NVIDIA Quadro video card (per Avid compatibility).

Given my requirements, what are my best options for the case, power supply, and cooling?

Thanks in advance!
Kyle

The specs on that case say the motherboard type is Micro ATX / ATX, but the P9X79 is SSI CEB, which has a different size than ATX, right?

Oh. It will be extra hard to find a SSI CEB silent case. Sorry, but it is best to buy another motherboard.

OK, so I'll probably go with the NZXT SWITCH 810 and I'm looking at Corsair Vengeance 32GB DDR3 1600 MHz.

Any suggestions on Cooling? I don't want to go overboard on this...

I was looking at the Noctua NH-D14, which is apparently very quiet, but also very large -- someone posted that it wouldn't fit over his RAM. Given my configuration, would it fit alright?

I also looked at Corsair H80 and H100, but I'm not at all familiar with liquid cooling systems.
