What do you mean a raid card?

I know what you mean about the costs for a nice watercooling loop. I just completed a build that I am hoping to sell and have about $1200 in the watercooling components alone. But your just a hop and a skip across the border, why not have someone in that states (like me here in WA) order the stuff for you? Do you not have any relatives that live in the states?
Seems like it would be worth the extra effort if it will save you that much $$
Sorry we don't know anybody in the States, and we prefer shopping local so if any problems occur within the first few weeks...

Oh, I didn't know that! I was flipping through the pages of the Intel General section and getting so pissed

Also swap the H70 for a SilverArrow.
Finally instead of 1 x 2TB HDD get 2 x 1TB and run in RAID 0 config, way faster.
The extra $300 not worth it for the 990X + X58 board?
The HDD is only for storage so for safety, just leaving is as a 2TB should be fine
We'll definitely look into SilverArrow

We'll look into SA since Noctua is just too damn ugly.

that 2600k build will kill everything. i would know
So the extra 2 cores and a X58 board is not worth the extra $300?

1x Intel i7 2600k
- such a better choice in CPU
1x Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD5
- fantastic price/performance with great overclocking capability
1x 4-8 Gb. G.Skill RipJawsX 1600Mhz. CL9
- won't be needing anything else for gaming.
1x GTX 580
- won't need more than one for gaming at 1920x1080 res.
1x Corsair HX850
- won't be needing more for this system
1x 120 Gb. SSD
- one is quite enough (I use only 1x 60 Gb.)
1x Samsung SpinPoint F3 1 Tb.
- Great HDD, and you can always add more
1x Silverstone Raven RV03
- SUPERIOR cooling
1x Antec KÃ¼hler 920
- MUCH better cooling performance over the H70 (check some reviews)
This would be more than enough for a daily/gaming setup at 1920 x 1080 resolution
I guess you didn't read all the post and just randomly made a list here:
CPU - considering whether to save that $300 and go with 2600K
MB - he demands Asus and he DEMANDS ROG
RAM - He's obviously not only "gaming"
GPU - he's running a XL30 @ 2560x1600 and no it's not just gaming
PSU - considering AX850 or AX1200
SSD - 120 is NOT enough for him
HDD - no F3 here
CASE - this is more personal taste, gotta pass the "looks" test first
COOLER - still deciding, but the Kuhler is the exact same as the H70.

cooler- antec kuhler 920
Hope u like my help
He won't OC the GPU, that's why we picked the SuperClocked version of the EVGA GTX 580
Will look into all these new coolers

If you do though, check their website to see a compatibility list of MOBOs and RAM.
Check out the Corsair AX1200. Not only is a very solid modular PSU.. all of the cables are sleeved all the way to the connector. No color showing. Looks cleaner.
Noctua is too ugly
but will check into AX PSU's

keep in mind, i think some sockets are limited how many sata devices they support though... mine only recognizes 4 i think (max)
I've already indicated 2x Intel 510 Series 120GB and a 2TB HDD

Definitely looking into it
