No idea why you want low profile RAM. If you're liquid cooling, there's no blocking the RAM, so you can easily get high profile and get even better cooling on it.

Also, I suggest the 650D. Nice case.

This will going to be my first build.
any suggestion for the ram please ? I will go for the high profile thank you (you mean high profile ram with cooler ? )

and also look for the 650D case as you suggested

Yes high profile as in heat spreader. I personally use the Corsair Vengeance 8 GB high profile RAM and it is awesome.

is this an editing pc or gaming?

i think the two hard drives you have make no sense, why 2 different 7200rpm drives? (i understand what they are) but you could just get 3TB if that's what you are looking for. there is no "EXTREME" difference between WD and Seagate (even though it's WD Black). if you are looking for hard drive performance then you would have to go with SSD.

if its an editing PC i dont think you should fill all RAM slots (ie. get 2x8gb for future upgrade). If gaming, its ok but need only 8gb for these days.

I dont know about your CPU/Mobo, but both are very expensive, can only assume its editing... still wouldnt buy such an expensive motherboard, no need.

thank you very much SHORYUKEN

what about this one :
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) (F3-1600C9D-16GXM) it is about 124 $

OR

G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) (F3-2133C9D-16GTX) it is about 168 $ in my country

Regards.

I need to say that just I would like to have a high performance PC for at least 3 years and don't think OC whenever I need. So not so for gaming nor editing. This system will be around 2.000-2.200 $ I can not decide if I make it lower or not.

I will go for 3TB Seagate. Thanks for the advice.

Regards.

I know nothing about monitors, but I don't recommend 3D. I also don't know if you wanted Blu-Ray or not.

I will think about this one and will reduce the cost around 1.000 $
Thank you very much. I do watch Blu-Ray & HD movies.
