Hi All,
I'm using some components that are new to me, so was hoping you could look over my build and let me know anything you'd change. I've included absolutely everything I'll be purchasing.

Purpose: Gaming with High/Ultra level graphics settings primarily. Also a factor: Aesthitics, low noise level, airflow, ability to OC
Budget: Up to $3500, including shipping
Link: ]

Made me laugh that you said that, because it's EXACTLY the board I wanted to get at first! The reason I didn't go for it is because of the yellow in there. It would look horrible next to the blue theme I'm going for. I could go with all black, or black/gray instead of black/blue...but black/yellow just would look horrible.

I'd preffer MSI, ASUS or Gigabyte to ASRock any day, but that's just me.

What? the Extreme 6 doesn't have yellow in it.. Your thinking of the mPower from MSI or the OC Formula from ASRock.

Since ASRock and ASUS are basically the same company neither companys can you go wrong with

8/10. Windows 8 FTW

Agreed, swap out your board. Get a 2Tb. Maybe MSI Z77A-GD65 or Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H.

Is this just to save some money or is there any other reason you'd suggest this? I took a look at the gigabyte boards but didn't like the way their integrated WiFi worked. I've never worked with MSI before so I'd love to see more about why you'd go with these boards.

Uhm, I don't know, but a fairly low score.

Even if you have money to burn, why spend so much on parts that aren't going to help you at all?

Extreme4 would easily do the trick for you but if you seriously want to blow all your money than go ahead i would recommend saving it for future upgrades

The two logos are in yellow text. "Z77" and the other one (can't read the text).

MSI is very good built about 5 new pc's with MSI boards and no problems. Gigabyte was only because its cheaper and the extra cash goes to something more important like GPU or SSD etc

But than again if you are going to spend so much I guess it's not going to be a problem :)

Oh cool thanks, I'm going to look at the MSI boards and see if I can get any for less $. What's the BIOS like with MSI? Pretty straightforward to use?

It clearly does. Not a lot, but it's noticeable.

The reason as to why I dislike ASUS (and the only reason) is their customer support. But they usually don't fail with products. I'd say, You've got a solid build... and You're not going to use 2 tb. 1tb is just fine, especially since you're running SSD Raid.

*Edit* Click BIOS? That's all you can come up with? Come on man, How hard is it to use a BIOS with out a cursor? Come on now! The MoBO will actually save him money so he doesn't have to purchase a WiFi Adapter lol.

After looking at the boards and reading more reviews I'm going to go with Asus, but I'm going to skip the external fan controller and go with the Asus fan control software instead. Thanks for the feedback all!
