The Dual 1366 Classified isn't even out...
Well then, build your own.

Also why no on the water-cooling? Any specific reasons?
I don't mind having water in my computer at all. I'm not scared of it, but for the money that's put into it, along with the extra amount of time (Even if it's not much more) I don't like it. I'd rather just air cool and stay that way. I also take my computer apart way too much for water cooling.

My own case? I've considered, but I don't have the time.

Yeah that's one downside to water-cooling.

Also I would look into the G.SKILL PI Series 6GB. Much cheaper then the Dominator's have the same speeds and probably have better timings. Almost the same timings (7-8-7 instead of 7-7-7). And really you wont notice the difference between that.

Here's the build on newegg.

Ram is 12GB of G.Skill Pi at 1600MHz
5x Raid Edition WD 750GBs
V8 is place holder for Mega or whatever cooler you want.

Lacking: Sound card, Dirt 2, Case fans.

Oh, I did that too. I'll just tweak the GSkill to the same timings.
