Looks like Overkill theme there.

If that's the case, go with Indigo Extreme thermal solution.
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=232141

I would go with a more recent PSU, that HX1000 is form 2008 or 2009. I forget which year but it's outdated and there's better for less money.

Antec high current pro, Silverstone Strider, Corsair AX, NZXT Hale90, etc.

Looks like a fun build, congradulations!

Most reviews & comments I've seen is that the Artic Silver 5 seems to be the most recommended thermal paste around.

NewEgg also has a new customer coupon code "NEWCUSTOMER10". Just create you a few extra gmail accounts and save you some bucks. smile.gif

Again, a lot of the old favorites like the HX1000 and Artic Silver 5 need to be laid down to rest.

Just about everything available in the enthusiast markets are better than AS5.

MX-2, Shin-Etsu, Indigo Extreme.
Even OCZ freeze is cheaper and better than AS5.



OP: Wait up on the ASUS maximus for a second, look at this Mobo with 24 Power Phases:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128499

I believe the Asus Maximus only has 8-phase CPU power.

So I need a new powersupply! I knew I was doing something wrong.

I just looked up 1000w power supplys and there we were.

So AX is the newest Corsair?

Yes, It's their highest quality units, But I would go with whatever is lowest priced because the other high end brands are on par or better.

I'll try to find you your best option.

Nevermind: I took a look at what JG had to say, it's pretty much one of the best units:

AX1200

What's your budget? The AX1200 would suit your overkill theme perfectly.

Alot of overkill there? frown.gif Wait, I like overkill!

Budget is around $4000.

Was going to order from digital storm online, but then put all the pieces into a newegg cart and found I could do it for a grand cheaper!

Well, Let's not get out of hand and just waste your money. The HX850 in your sig can power 2 GTX 580s in SLI.

Is there anything you can transfer over? Are you selling your current rig? Or keeping it as a backup?
