I do wanna OC, or attempt OC , by about August this year or so. Just wanna run stock to get a good feel on the system first. "I" don't mind getting something to run a little better that stock for now, and purchase better later, "BUT", my "wife" wants me to get what I need now so we dont have to get it later....... I hate women sometimes

the 212+ is a great budget cooler
just not good enough for the 125w+ cpu's overclocked

something like the h50 would be the next step up

Love your build personally, NZXT and Asus FTW

I would look at getting a corsair PSU, you can't go wrong there.
As far as the memory is concerned, I would say the some Gskill ripjaws 1600 MHz.

As far as the H50 and H70 go, amazing coolers, I have an H50 and have used it for bout a year with it in odd positions with tubes and no signs of sealing issues or performance decrease at all. Just make sure you seat it right or your temps will be FAR off (learned this the hard way)

H70 has little improvement though over the H50, save you some money and get the H50 over the H70.

Wish you the best, sounds like an awesome build!

I have to disagree with this entirely. I had other fans sitting around, and tried them on my 212+, running a light OC (3.75 GHz) 1090T, and the absolute worst I've seen it (once, in an 83F room) was 51C. Usually my room is around 68F, and the temps are around 42C. Even the stock fan, and 2nd fan improved things, and the 38mm ones are overkill.

For the price, you could just get a decent flowing, 2000+ rpm 25mm thick fan, can be sleeve bearing, and will work just fine for the sake of improving the 212+. Provided your case has airflow, and cool room temps, you shouldn't have problems OCing a 1090T.

For what it's worth, my CPU is spec'd to put out 141 watts according to HW Monitor, and that would seem right.

now I've heard the Corsair H50 has had a few joint issues where J joint will accidently disconnect from the contact base sometimes

I like the idea of using the H50 primarily due to the fact that I can only fit max 150mm heatsink in if I have the side fan installed. The installed side fan currently is about 116 CFM blowing directly on the cpu. I was thinking of going with a low clearence 150mm air heatsink, but I'm a little iffy about how the air flow would react due to the side wall intake blowing on the heatsink outtake, though I could invert the heatsink fan to an intake. Good thing is that it has an outtake 120mm directly above on the case, so with the heatsink setup as outake, it might counter balance the airflow. Guess I will just have to experiment with the airflow. Would you suggest close loop liquid or air cool in this scenerio?

If you want low profile on air, Noctua C12P-SE14. However, for the price, the H50 will win. Try using the H50 as an exhaust. It might be better than expected. If you've good airflow in the case, and the case is 1-2C above ambient (room) temp, then your airflow is probably pretty good.

I'm not to worried in regards to price, mainly just concernded on performance value (aswell aas insuring it'll fit in the case). I'm guessing though that due to cconcensious that the H50 would be the best choice. Now, is there really much difference between the H50 and the H70? like I said, price is of no concern, just want the best performence and longevity. Also, I have decided to go with the Mushkin Redline 1600mhz 8gb memory. Have not purchased yet, gonna get next week, but if anyone happens to have other suggestions, I am open to opinion and will research and compare each module to decide a final choice. Also I have decided to get th Raidmax 850 watt modular psu for $109.99, not yet purchased, but still open to sugestions

I took a close look at the Noctua C12P-SE14, and I think this should work perfectly. The side fan would blow directly onto the heatsink fan (setup as intake) allowing for a better degree of cooling with a more centralized flow onto the cpu. This also help greatly due to the how close the ram slots are, which would keep those cooled down as well. Much better setup than using the H50, since it'll cool multiple components at one time. Thanks very much for the suggestion, I'm gonna go ahead and get the Noctua C12P-SE14.
