I personally love my Tunic Tower 120 getting awesome temps at load as well as at Idle... On the other had I'm not running a quad so do some more research there has to be someone that has put this buet on a Quad.. Another thing Be wherry of that Antec, I use to have a 480 and I found out they were burning up systems... If your going to OC the system above you might want a 700w or higher... I just got my OCZ a week ago because I was having problems ocing my gfx card and brought it over to a friends house and he was able to bring it even farther because of the PSU he had... Well what ever you decide good luck and everything looks good... you might want to ask about the ram I dont know much about the DDR3s...

^^Toast,
Thank-you for the information. I had considered the TT120, but has you mentioned I do want to spend a lil more to keep that quad cool for a max overclock. I also had no idea that the Antec PS was possibly troublesome. Thank-you for the heads up!! I will be keeping a eye on it.

A good 550w psu will be enough for your build like the one I'm using. Also the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme is the best air cooler next to the ifx4 but the ifx4 only gets a couple degrees cooler if that and costs alot more so Id say go for the TRUE.

gorf just to clarify my earlier statement about the 480 Neo. I had that replaced way back last summer before I did this last build and Antec was nice enough to send me a Antec Neo 500 and that is what i wasn't able to oc my gfx any further with... Sorry about the confussion...
