Get a Modular PSU, **** will piss you off to no end with all those wires. It will make cable management hell.

Honestly I would wait for some reviews. You don't want to end up with a worthless motherboard. IMO the most important part of the PC.

+1, I cannot stand messy rigs so making it neat and order helps tidy things up and manage cables running EVERYWHERE!.

Also if you water cooled, you don't want cables blocking the view from the bright shining liquid flowing through your system right?

Edit: As far as I can see the RAM difference is stock voltage, though clearly one is out of stock for the moment, so if you are in a rush and don't mind the voltage increase, get the regular Rip Jaws.

Though for HDD, I'd say spend up to $30 extra for 1.5-2TB storage or just buy another F3 and RAID them for data protection or performance.

As for the motherboard, hopefully someone can shed some light for you since they both look and describe the same. Personally I'm getting the upcoming FatalIty ASRock board or the UD7 from Gigabyte. Prefer the UD7 cause I'm planning to buy another 580 and get some 200 series card for Physix.

Maybe check into some H67 boards if you don't want to OC on them.
