I'm about to order parts for my new rig, but i'm not sure if everything will fit OK.

CPU CooleR:

i'm not 100% if the h100i radiator mounted to the top will interfere with my motherboards heatsink or what? Any insight will be appreciated greatly.

thanks for the fast reply, just can't be too careful, if anyones still around, this is my final build I think, I know a few parts are extremely excessive, but money isn't an issue right now, feel free to tell me what you think!

Not doing SLI or Crossfire, and I just want the Dominator Platinum Ram for aesthetics, also, my friend is really really really recommending the XFX psu, 650W is more than enough for my system, I ran about 4 different calculators and the most it comes out to is around 530 watts. Also, I said price wasn't an issue, but i'm planning on upgrading to SSD's later in the year, i'm good with just a 64gb for my OS right now. :)

For 15$ more you get a gold certified power supply, full modular from seasonic
Seasonic is known for there good quality and efficient power supplies, also many people recommend them...

Highly suggest a 128 GB Vertex 4 SSD instead of 64 GB.

The rampage is pointless if you're not going 2or 3 way sli. If buying the cpu at microcenter get the asrock extreme4 for $50 off as a combo. Take the money saved and get a 180 or 256gb ssd. Really a waste of time and energy to install to a small ssd then do it all again inside of a year.

Rather have a noctua dh-14 than the h100i - quiet and no pump noise.
