  3. why would you need a 750w power supply?
  4. Just in case i want to roll sli.
  5. That's a good observation.
    Then stay with the xfx 750w psu, it will do for 670 gtx sli.
    I have worries about the ram, it could block the cooler, with the z77 asrock and those tall heatsinks from the corsair.
    I rather get the low profile ram kit from corsair.
    Other than that it's all good.
  6. You mean the ram is too tall to fit with the cpu cooler?
  7. Yes, it could be.
    I rather get the corsair low profile kit
