Thread Starter 
I'm not sure whether we have the latest WD blue in Aus. I will take a look though.

Notes:

The Water 2.0 Extreme outperforms the H110 by a slight margin and greatly outperforms the H100i.

The Plextor M5P is the direct competitor to the Samsung 840 Pro and offers damn near the same performance at a slightly cheaper price.

And I hate people who blatantly, Takla, hail Corsair as the best choices you can get. There are better/cheaper options out there as shown above.

Oh, and you can probably find these parts even cheaper from vendors in Australia that don't show up on PCPP.

Is this shipping for each store included? And thank you for introducing me to pcpartspicker. I wish I found this earlier.

And for the 100i being the lower performing CPU cooler. I looked at some review/tests and most seem to come to the conclusion that the thermaltake is better, but not by much. And the 100i is also cheaper in its defence.

Why the OC board? it's geared towards extreme overclockers

Also 500W PSU should be fine.

Yeah, the shipping should be included in that total cost AFAIK.

The CPU cooler is your choice. They are both good and solid picks.

Mainly because its the same price there as the Extreme6, and the OC board is a slight bit nicer overall.

And the PSU was because I was under the assumption that OP wanted to SLI/Xfire down the line in the future and there really aren't that many options in Australia
