I agree. Single loop is just no match for custom loop or even 240/360mm ones because most of them come in 120mm

ASUS 570 SLI Could go with another brand of 570 but I really do not plan on going tri sli or using the slot for a 1x or 4x card, but I do want to be future proof and my needs may change in the future. So this one is still debatable.
CORSAIR H100 I'm digging the 0 maintenance and performance, but the XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 is starting to grow on me. studying on this one.
Intel 510 120gb SSD pricy but good numbers and high quality.
GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD7-B3 This board made me wet myself
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)x2 for 16gb Best I have found so far, but any suggestion of something better might change this one.

Still open for suggestions.

If you like Asus , here is a killer board and its red. The evga board is really good,But not the best for the money(imo) they need to come out with a classified model for 1155 (imo)

I think my mobo choice just changed to the Asus!

EDIT: The layout of that board is perfect!

Certainly nothing wrong with anything you've done there; I'll just offer some suggestions, since you want some additional input/thought:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130593 (perfect "five egg" rating with 172 reviews)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16820167043& (with your budget, 2x the storage capacity would be a plausible option)

Man, I'm glad I brought these questions to oc.net

Another option would be getting a 580 now, upgrading it a few months later to SLI since a single 580 can still max out almost anything at 1080p
It's a computer.

recommendation...move closer to a Microcenter >$400 for SB i7 and a rockin mobo

--Also recommending Intel or Crucial SSD's.
I use crucial M4s at home, they aren't the fastest solo (on paper), but they rock in RAID0 (crystal mark gives me around 520 read on sata II ports). plus they're cheap as dirt and so far refuse to break.

Another option is intel 510 series...I've used around 20 Intel 510 120 GB drives at work, an they are all still rocking with a ton of hard and heavy usage.

Speed is nice, but shoot for dependency any SSD is going to knock your socks off

Good choice on the SSD. I've seen intel benchmarks. If you have the money, go for it

This is where I stand right now.
2600k
EVGA 570 Classified SLI This is still debatable but the stock clock speeds are unmatched, only uses 2 slots instead of 3.
CORSAIR H100 studying on this one still.
Intel 510 120gb SSD Sticking with this one.
ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z This board is perfect, definitely getting this one.
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)x2 for 16gb Best I have found so far, but any suggestion of something better might change this one.
