Cooler is the only let down mate.

A noctua d14 would sit in there nicely.

whats you have linked looks good

whats the speed on your ram?

if its 1333 cl9 1.65v try go get something better
aim for 1600 cl9(or lower) 1.5(1.65 is ok too)

im not sure what am3+ cpus like more timings or speed
but am3 cpus like low timings vs high speeds

id get a 212+ instead of the arctic cooling freezer 7 (although i like the choking hazard warning)
atm its $28.50 fs

Yup. All that looks nice. Though a better cooler would be advised. D-14, Archon, Silver Arrow, Ven-X... Something hefty.

asus chv is like wow looking and all but don't you guys think it's a little over priced?
the sabertooth dang near offers the same stuff and costs a heck of a lot less.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131736 $189 vs $239

The Pyro III is behind the other sandforce SSDs in terms of speed, according to reviews. The Crucial M4 120GB is slower than (faster) sandforce SSDs, but it is faster than the Patriot and also has a better reliabilty record. For less money.

Scythe Mine 2 offers NH-D14 class performance with an extra fan, for lower price. I highly recommend it.
The best cooler at that price point is this Sunbeam 120MM dual fan cooler.

Ok thanks mod, i'll take that into account.

ffejrxx: its 1600mhz 9-9-9-24


This is my set of ripjaws, got it on a shell shocker for 50$. couldn't miss that

Mod, that sunbeam looks perfect. Right weight, size, matches the crosshair V, and looks like it cools great. And free thermal paste?

Wasting that motherboard with that cooler.

if you really want that cooler, id recommend maybe a 4-6 phase max board.

Just to make the cooler worthwhile.

edit: I got 16GB of that ram for $50~ in our FS section.
