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.

Ok can you explain the CPU power phases for me? I dont understand anything about that lol!

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

Selling it most likely. But could take that power supply out just fine. Can replace it with something cheaper hehe!

Everything else stays though.

Power Phases help stabilize high voltages. You'll be able to get higher stable overclocks with more power phases.

I'm working on a build that is very high end while saving you some lettuce in the process.

That would be great, Im just itching to pull the trigger, just got my 15k bonus from work and want a new computer.

I went with the Crucial M4 over the 510 intel, though not sure, does crucial have a good reliability history?

Thanks for all the help so far guys.

That's a good combo...

The c300 beats it in random 4k though, and is most likely cheaper.

I could be wrong but I don't the the Ripjaws X and SA are compatible. I know the air cooling forum has the answer somewhere. I do on the other hand know that the NH-D14 is compatible with that RAM, and pretty much the same performance.

Several things. First I wanted the Asus Max IV because of the Bios, the overclocking ability and just general goodness of it. Read alot of reviews, and have not had good luck with Gigabyte boards, especially there bios.

I have 4 HDD's right now, so wont need the spinpoint.

EVGA has much better CS with there video cards, so going to stick with EVGA, also better warranty.

I really want the NVIDIA edition case, I love the looks of it.

Other then that going with most of what you have listed. Though am getting the Noctua DH14, so many good reviews of it.

Though still not sure what paste to get. Would like to order everything from one place that ships international. Newegg has never done me wrong there.

PS Should I go with different ram then what I stated? The 2000 speed ram looked like a good deal, it is G.Skill ripjaws.

Already not wanting to get into the wiring portion of this build, and liquid cooling MEH.

The Noctua Im told/read and so on can do a nice overclock with air cooling.

So with the HAF X case and all that air cooling plus the noctua should get a nice OC.
