if i go with the kit that is ddr3 1800...when over clock the cpu will that make it harder to get to higher numbers?

The H50 is outdated. If you're gonna go that route, get the H70. As for as how it compares with the air coolers I mentioned, I would still go for a good air cooler because they're cheaper than that all-in-one liquid cooling kit. They should cool about the same, though.

No. If a kit is rated at 1800 MHz, it should be able to run at that speed regardless of what the CPU is running at. The only problem you might run into is if you've got your FSB set at some weird number and the RAM dividers can't get you to 1800 MHz.

i guess i worded my question wrong.... if i run the 1800 would that allow me to over clock the cpu just as well as the 2000?

also would this be better to go with for cooling?

Yes. The memory won't hold you back as long as the settings you have them at are stable.

Yeah, a full-on water loop will cool a lot better than any air cooler or all-in-one liquid cooling kit. I've never personally set one up, though, so you'll have to ask someone else about that.

well i this is my last question i just need to figure out for power usage how big shoudl i go this is what im going to be goign with

ASUS Crosshair IV Formula mobo
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz
G.SKILL Flare 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (will upgrade to 8gigs latter)

XFX HD-695A-CNFC Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit (will grab a nother one latter to go cross fire)
CORSAIR Hydro H70 CWCH70 120mm High Performance CPU Cooler

and right now i will just use my standard 110gig hard drive
and also my dvd/cd burner

If you're going to get another 6950 in the future, a good 850-watt PSU will do just fine. You could probably get away with a 750-watt PSU, actually. Just make sure it's a good PSU that can cleanly deliver its rated wattage. The PSU is the one component you should never cheap out on because if your PSU decides to die, it can take out other components with it.

I would probably go with another PSU, though. I think the XFX Black Edition 850-watt PSU would be great for this build. Here's the review.

Yeah, the efficiency of the Cooler Master PSU is great, but I think voltage regulation and ripple suppression are more important than efficiency.

The Corsair 850HX is also a good choice, but I would probably get the XFX PSU over this one because they're both quality PSU's, but the XFX has got the cheaper price.
