with the saving from microcenter that would bring it to around $1270

i would say a Rasa RS240 Wc kit in place of H100 add another 30$ andits would be future proof and a lot better then the H1oo. the only reason i avoid H1oo is there are many cases of Leakages around and corsair is not always replacing it so i would better say go with a RS240 for 130$ or a D14 for 80$ thumb.gif for that budget you can put in 2x 7870 or 2x7950 if you want the best GPU performance but if you plan gaming on a single screen or 2 screen at max i would say a GTX 680 is enough wink.gif

Didn't realize that those watercoolers had a tendacy to leak. I wanted to get one for the no hassle install and to get my feet wet watercooling. For now I am just planning on getting the cpu and mobo while they are on such a good sale. I will get the rest of the components when I can get my sig rig sold. Currently just on two monitor with my trusty 5850, which runs most things quite well. I may just get the 680 now and if need be I could always get a second one down the road biggrin.gif.

Also I will probably just be running my cpu around 4.6 ghz. I heard the ivy bridge series is a bit hotter then sandy bridge though. I know I set my buddy up with a 212+ and that has been working great on his 2500k.

A custom loop will have more of a tendency to leak then the H100 and if it breaks then Corsair will replace any of the parts. If you looking to SLI 680s then you will would be pushing it with a 750w (3570k=228w, 680 x 2= 437w, and etc. = 50w) I would get a XFX PRO850W XXX Edition which is 80+ silver, semi-modular, and made by Seasonic.

The 3570k + Extreme4 Z77 cost $280 together drool.gif

That special is the single reason I am upgrading, there is no way I can pass that up. Waiting till Thursday for the parts to come in. Will definitively consider that modular supply, I always hate the huge wad of cables in the back of my cases.

Yeah, that's one hell of a combo deal. There are two pretty good deals on PSU's right now. The XFX Pro750W XXX Edition comes out to be $115 after rebates, and the Corsair AX750 ends up costing $125. Only difference between the two is the Corsair is fully modular, where the XFX is semi. My last PSU was an XFX and they make a sweet looking PSU. You can' t go wrong with either one from a quality stand point.
