Parts look great, I'd probably do a different CPU cooler myself. And I swear by Corsair PSU's, they're silent, even my HX1000. Not sure about the Sunbeams as far as sound goes but I know they make quality products.

Btw, what TIM are you using for the CPU? You should get some Arctic Cooling MX-3 or OCZ Freeze. Use that on the CPU, reseat the NB/SB and GPU coolers with it too.

Thanks for the feedback. Never thought about TIM. Not even sure if any comes with the TX-3. But I probably have some at work. We design STB for satellite TV. I saw some reviews concerning the TX-3 vs others and it seemed decent for the price and size. I'm not going to do any serious OC, just a little. I also thought the factory coolers for GPU were sufficient. I'll have to look into that. The worst part is all the pieces are under my tree right now, just taunting me. I have to wait.
