The recommended RAM for sandy bridge by intel needs to be rated at 1.5v. I would say 1600 cas 9 RAM is fine for 99% of people. If you insist on going Mushkin then I would reccomend this RAM instead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226191 .
Alternatively Gskill has similar ram at the same price point.

If he doesn't like waiting I wouldn't bother with open box. Since he has a full size SSD and a descrete card there is no need for Z68, so lets go with the P67. The best cost:performance boards would be any of these three. (note the UD4 doesn't have UEFI)

Or if you don't care you usually can get some similar Gskill ram for 10-20$ cheaper.

What is so wrong with Open Box ? Ive bought a few boards and there not bad at all? I thought that the board I had was a P67 board plus its cheaper than what youve listed or am I missing something?

With shipping on open box items (non open box are free), they have a less than 5$ price difference. Nothing is wrong with open box, but it seemed as if the build was urgent, and I thought that the added risk of buying open box may not be worth the 5$ to the customer.

Np, that is the old version the the TX 650. This is the new.

The only notable difference is the Bronze certification, but there is a 5$ price difference (before rebate). Corsair is actually good on there rebates, they have trackers ect, but they take like 3 months.

The H50 is pricey compared to it's performance, but it is a nice solution for people with limited case space, or just want to a better look at their motherboard. You could step down to something like the hyper 212+, or step up to the Noctua D14

Not sure if you already have a case, or have a preference of one, but the HAF 922 is a roomy case with good cable management, the only notible con is the inside is not painted black.

He wants to stick the thing in an old computer case of his and i mean like large floppy disk old lol so im going to be doing a bit of moding on it but space will be a a premium as its not very tall. which is why i was looking at the H-series of coolers it would allow me to route the radiatior in a different spot. I would just go full WC on it but he dosnt want to go that route

Thanks for the info on the psu as well didnt even catch that it was the old one smile.gif

I would actually not bother with the TX650V2. The XFX 650 watt is modular, cheaper, and both the Corsair and XFX are based off of the same exact SeaSonic unit. It's $88.99 and $68.99 AMIR
