Remember the reviews may not mention the extra features. Logan from tek syndicate has an overview of all the Asus Z87 motherboards all from an actual Asus rep. Too lazy to look it up lol.

Sorry for double post. Really lazy today, also on my phone.

Ya the fans on the H110 are crap. Get something like Swiftech Helix 140's are your good to go. Either that or switch all together to the swiftech H220 or 230 and save yourself the $40 minimum on fans. Remember fans add up really really quick. wink.gif

Touchee on the Swiftech.

For the most part I agree with you on the PCPartpicker thing. But it definitely helps to find out if you're paying too much. I have a total of 1 choice for enthusiast parts in Winnipeg and it's definitely way faster than scrolling through the top 5 or so sites.

The H220 was my first choice. I think I decided to go with something else cause I saw some YouTube vids about the radiator noise in certain units (cause by an air bubble or something). But I'm glad you brought Swiftech up...I'm gonna go with the H220 (or maybe H220X if I delay the build).

Actually, if you do have to wait, go for the H320 since you got all that triple-rad real estate in the front of the case biggrin.gif

*EDIT*
Also, if you do get one of those ones with an air bubble problem (never heard of this problem ever), just tell swiftech and they can send you another one. No big deal if you gotta use your stock cooler for a week to get a silent unit.

UPDATE:

Decided to drop the 2100's and go for the Sennheiser HD558 (gonna buy a 1.8m replacement cable) + Asus Xonar DX combo.

Price is up to $3287 (everything included). =\

EDIT: And replaced the mobo with an ASUS Maximus VI Hero ($30 more than the MSI)

Yeah originally I wanted to go wireless as much as I can (SSD, headphones, mouse, keyboard), but then you realize you have to sacrifice too much (quality, weight, speed). Also, I don't think it's healthy to have so many wireless signals all around your head.

What?
Also you dont have to sacrifice quality or speed with wireless, weight yes, but that if you care. Logitech's G602 is just as fast as your standard wired mouse, and its wireless, and its battery lasts an insane amount of time. I bought mine like 3-4 months ago, and i only just changed the batteries last month, just as an example.
