I'm about to build this rig: http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=13706994
And I want to know, do I need more fans?

1. You proberly dont but there is room for more. But nzxt make 45cfm fans only.
2. I prefer if you got a Z68 that will support IVY Bridge for future upgrades.
3. Wheres the CPU?
EDIT: and a storage drive (HDD)

I personally run an extra 200mm fan on the top of the case an a 140mm in the front by the HDD bay.

No i afraid not. I think only Z68 will support them. But I might be wrong so ill help you research
Edit: Oh no no no. dont worry i was wrong they do support ivy bridge. Thats why it has pcie 3.0 cause ivy bridge is the only cpu that supports it doh.gif

wait if your getting a 7970 and its PCI-E 3.0, the cpu your getting only supports 2.0 like all the other sandy bridges. So what i recommend is to get a cheap i3 until ivy bridge comes out in april. Then buy an i5 3550K or i7 3770K if your planning to overclock
Heres a list, (all the one that have 'K' at the end is overclockable)
