Haha - it's the only reason I haven't already bought it.

Large chunk of metal hanging from a silicon board is just asking for trouble

I can probably convince by little brother to buy my H50 for £40 or so at least an put it towards a new cooler.

Before I do I would like some feedback or recommendation for any of the hardware I have chosen.
  • Intel Core i5 2500K
  • ASUS ENGTX580 1.5GB DirectCUII
  • 8GB Mushkin Blackline 1600Mhz CAS 9
  • 128GB Crucial M4 SSD
  • 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3 HDD
  • Silverstone FT02B-W
  • Corsair AX850W PSU

The motherboard I have not yet decided on, it will either be:
  • ASRock Extreme4 Gen3
  • ASRock Extreme7 Gen3

This is dependant on the price of the Extreme7 on release.

I intend to keep the motherboard for a while and will definitely be upgrading to 1155 Ivy Bridge when the time comes and may go SLI/Crossfire in the future, hence the powerful PSU which will leave lots of headroom.

I may also get the ASUS Maximus Extreme if I can get a hold of it for cheap enough in new condition.
A sufficient cooler will also be used for suitable overclocking.

Is there anything that should be switched for a similar item?

Is there anything else I should purchase for use in the case, be it for cable management or upgrades?

This will be my first proper build so any help would be much appreciated.
If you dont have plans on upgrading the gfx card later, you'd make BIG MISTAKE getting the gtx 580. Either of your board will handle SLI so grab 2x 560 ti, you'd see 33% improvement over the single 580 at the same price range btw, that psu is a little too overkill, get a 750w max and you can tri-SLI those 560's later

concerning the asrock things mentioned before, I purchased an ascrock board with an integrated E350 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157228) and I have nothing but good things about it. The instant boot feature does not work for me, but it is a tiny annoyance. Everything else about it is rather good.

Oh, though, my board has some unusual stains on it like flux remains from when the board was manufactured. Other than that, no problems with it.

Since when can you tri-SLI GTX560 ti's?
They only have one sli connector, which means 2-way or no-way.

I already have the 2500K (Got it for £120 posted, BNIB) and the GTX580

The only reason I got the GTX580 is because it was such a good deal I really couldn't pass it up.

It was just under £300 posted and for such a decent card with the DCUII cooler it was near enough the same price of a comparible 570 - especially since it was new.

Being the higher end model it will probably keep a decent value when the next line hits (Hopefully)

ASUS ENGTX580 1.5GB DirectCUII ... if you plan to SLI later on .. this isn't the best card to do it. Unless you find a motherboard with 3 slot , 1 slot, 3 slot set up... you going to have some heat issues.

Just get the regular GTX 580 and you are fine.

As for the one that talked about tri-SLI with GTX 560, he doesn't know what he talking about haha. If you got the cash now get the GTX 580, it will last you a pretty long time, and when the time does come to upgrade again..just slap in another 580.

The dude was right about getting a 750 watt psu... if there a 'huge' difference in pricing between the AX750 vs. AX850, then i would just get the AX750. If not then just stick with the 850 watt.

I have had the ASRock P67 Extreme 6 for a month and a half or so. I did have to RMA the board a few days after I got it, but the second one has worked like a charm.

Only normally £5-£6 difference in price between the AX750 and AX850 (They are both normally on offer every other day on Scan.co.uk) that's why I decided on the 850, may as well with such a small price difference.

As for the 580 - I probably won't upgrade till at least the new NVIDIA/AMD selection will be out and so will probably push for one of those if an upgrade is needed.

I'll be running it at 1080p so the GTX580 should handle most, if not everything I throw at it up until then.
