Much appreciated post.

Definitely going SLI this setup and I will be doing some OC to get that more juice out of it.

As for the initial setup I am a bit worried about some comments on the air flow in the case. So I am willing to buy a 140 fan to make a push/pull in the bottom and buy some nice 3x120m and put them in the top which I would use for the 360 rad later on. Perhaps flip the 140m on the back to intake.

Heres some thought about prepping the initial setup for water cooling while it air cooled.

Get a Corsair H50 (Can always use it for another build/computer)
Get 8 Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15.

2 on the Corsair H70
3 on the top for exhaust
1 on the bottom for intake
1 on the mid plate (push/pull intake from the bottom)
1 on the hard discs.

6 of those will later be used for my 360 rad.

Going with Corsair 700D instead I don't need the hot swap and I don't like windows

So far as Fan controller I am leaning towards Lamptron FC-5.

Some financial options opened up and my initial setup have reflected that
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K
  • MOBO: ASUS P8P67 Deluxe
  • GPU: 2xEVGA GeForce GTX 570 SLI
  • PSU: Corsair Professional Series Gold AX850
  • RAM: 2xG.SKill DDR3 RipjawsX PC3-12800 1600MHz 4GB Dual Kit (CL 6-8-6-24)
  • Case: Corsair Obsidian 700D
  • CPU Cooling: Corsair Hydro H70
  • HDD: 4xSamsung 1000 GB F3 32 MB
  • Screen: 3xASUS 24" VW246U
  • Fan: 8xScythe Gentle Typhoon A-15

I'll hold off with the SSD and Water cooling to have fewer updates and hope for SSD dropping in prices as stated here http://www.techspot.com/news/43752-g...s-in-2012.html

I might even do a water cooling before SSD since the price is like I want it but the price tag is just too high.
