Goodluck with your build, I'll try to follow it!
Excellent, thanks

Switched MSI reference w/ Twin Frozr II by MSI because they aren't making the reference cards anymore.

Switched to i5. Really did some HT research and I've decided it's not worth it.

nice specs for your rig Now we need pics
On another note, you should check my build log to see what I did with the airflow in the HAF-X

any reason as to why your going for the P8P67 deluxe? The P8P67 Pro seems to be the most popular 1155 mobo, it has tons of support and is pretty much identical as the deluxe version minus a couple minor features.

This table should help, however I would pick up the P8P67 Pro instead. Check the mobo section of OCN and see for yourself

Interesting... looks like I should go with the Pro. Digi+ VRM is just power delivery, so it looks like I'll jump back. Thanks for the tip!

If you are not planning on having a Multi Video Card setup, you could go with the P8P67 too . Myself, I like quiet systems so two video cards are too much. Looking forward for your build!

I do plan on crossfiring in the future. Once the 7xxx series cards are out I'll probably grab another 6950 as long as the price is right.

Well, officially am going with blue LEDs. I wanted to go with green but I didn't want to sacrifice part choice and have green parts. The blue will go with everything - blue mobo, RAM heatsinks, the blue themed case, and my video card. Plus, I save like $100 in fans because they come pre-installed in the HAF X blue edition.
