Since this is my first build, should I really be messing around with liquid cooling. I am already imagining pipes leaking, and hard drives drenched with water...

For RAM, you should get that samsung 30nm RAM. Everyone here always reccomends it
Why are you getting a single WD red drive? They are designed to be used in RAID volumes. If you want a storage drive, get a WD green.
That power supply is powerful enough to support at least 3 GTX 670s, get a 550 watt for a single 670 or 650 watt for two 670s.

If you do not want to liquid cool your CPU you could always just get a heat sink for it. It is just easier to install an aftermarket CPU heat sink during the first build. That way you do not have to deal with removing thermal paste. I did it backwards and waited on a heat sink, regretted it. As for the H100i or the H80i, they are both closed loop water cooling solutions, easy to install and introduce you to the concepts of water cooling.

I also always see the power supply discussion on build threads. I went with a 650w PSU and it is a champ. Listen to them and save the money on lower wattage and put it towrds getting a modular PSU as well. Look in my sig rig to see what a non modular PSU looks like. Cable management will be cake, I start working with the cables and then an hour has gone by. Good cable management = good air flow.

Good luck man.

OK, quick cooling lesson:
intel stock cooler:
i7_roundup-027.jpg
i7_roundup-025.jpg

H100i:
Corsair-H100i.jpg
h100i_hero_fan.png

hopefully you can tell that one of those two options has much, much more surface area than the other - I'll let you tell me which one.

The more surface area, the easier it is to get rid of the heat without lots of noise. If it's easier to get rid of heat, in general, you get both a quieter and cooler all-around experience.

As for worries about liquid cooling, that's the beauty of sealed loops - unless you seriously damage it, you've basically got nothing to worry about - you're not responsible for filling / sealing it, other than occasionally cleaning the dust out of the fins, but you have to do that with air cooling, too.

My vote is for the Noctua NH-D14 always. It is the best CPU cooler IMO. The Corsair H100 has a little more cooling potential, but has much louder fans.
You could also get the Phanteks TC14PE if you value looks over functionality (it has a slightly weaker mounting bracket and slightly worse cooling potential except at very high heat outputs according to OC3D)

If you want something that's a bit easier to work around, you could get a water cooler, like an H100 or that new NZXT one that has a 140mm radiator.

The Obsidian Series 650D is manufactured with strong, stamped steel parts for increased rigidity, and coated in a black textured paint. The front panel features a beautiful black brushed aluminum faceplate to bring a subtle elegance to your next build. In addition to the quality construction, the Obsidian Series 650D comes with excellent cooling as well. A large, black 200mm intake fan hides behind the front dust filter, quietly pushing vast amounts of air over your hard drives and video cards. The air is then exhausted by a second 200mm fan on top of the case, and a rear 120mm fan. The top fan can be replaced by dual 120mm or 140mm fans, and is pre-spaced for a dual radiator if you’re interested in watercooling. And all fans are controlled by a three-mode, four-channel fan controller should you want to make your own choice between noise and performance.

The 650D description from newegg. Judging from the pictures you won't need to buy any extra fans for it - looks like all the spots are populated.

Apparently the H100i is measurably better (about 3db quieter, and a few C cooler, given the same heat load) than the H100. Not to discount a decent cooler like the D14 seems to be, but I'm a big fan of watercooling. Every car I've ever owned has been water cooled wink.gif .

The Cooler Master 212+ is what I am using. I am happy with it as well as the price that i paid for it. It was under $40 and from what I read it rates up there with some of the more expensive heat sinks. If you are trying to save a little money Cooler Master, if not, go for the Noctua, imo.

On the H100i video Tom Logan did, the H100i didn't do that much better. It did quite a bit better at the crazy voltages, though.

Alright, Alright. So now I guess I feel OK about liquid cooling, I'm probably going to get the Cooler Master 212
