Yah I saw it, just didn't know what you had planned with it . I've never seen those either, so kinda neat. Guess space isn't an issue then.

What do you plan to put on the SSD? It might be more worthwhile to spend another 100$ for the 128gb one to have peace of mind. I got the 128gb one over the 64gb just because I don't want to have to constantly be dictating which drive has which games on it.

Looks good. Psu is way overkill though.
You really only need 750w psu for that setup. However Id recommend a quality 850watt psu. A corsair hx would be perfect.

link should work now.

On this rig probably not, but my current rig i will more than likely. Depending on which is the better OCer. I know high frequency ram can get in the way of those tests though.

Was maybe thinking about going with these too. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...te%20Vengeance

It will just be for the OS

Well i plan on OCing my CPU to around 5ghz for 24/7 use, and also OCing both cards to atleast 950core. The power draw will be enough for an 850?

Also is there a fully modular 850 like the AX i have picked out?

Not only would the MSI GTX580 Lightning Extremes be 2 slots instead of 3, but they also have 3gb of VRAM instead of the 1.5gb on the Asus. I myself was going to get a Crucial M4, and I believe they seem very solid. Other than that, I believe you have a perfect build there. Can't go wrong with that Noctua, its amazing. BUTTTTTTT, you have to watch your RAM spacing because the Noctua has been known to overlap the first RAM slot on P67 boards.

Also, here is a link for the Corsair AX series 850w.

an 850watt is more than enough for overclocking head room on the cpu and both gpu with room to spare. These 500 series cards use less power than the 400 and sandy bridge uses even less than the 45nm previous generations.

I will post a link here in just a sec to a psu calculator done by one of our psu gurus.

here it is. give this a thorough read. No sense in spending money on a 1200watt unit when a 850w is MORE than enough

I will have no use for 3gb of VRAM at 1080p, SLI will mostly be for the 120hz.
