One question I would like to know is are all these parts needed?

A six-core extreme CPU is a big investment if you are just doing random things + gaming. This includes 12GB RAM as well, what are all these parts being used for? Also, the 990x is sold at exactly the same price I believe...

For the mobo, you might as well go with the Rampage III Extreme. I'd also skip the GTX 580 SC since a regular GTX 580 will most likely OC just as well, sometimes even better (like mine).

Also, don't WC your RAM, waste of time, money, and overall loop performance.

Remember this, just because you're not on a budget doesn't mean slapping together random high end parts is a good idea.

Then go with the R3E, a Mushkin kit (screw Corsair, I'm tired of their 1600mhz kits not being able to hold that speed at stock voltage), a vanilla GTX 580, and a quality PSU (something that Corsair does right!)

Anyway, don't buy a RAM block. It's a waste. The NB/SB block is often not needed, but if the temps bug you, then why not.

Swifteck, EK, AquaComputer, Watercool, maybe XSPC. The way you're spending so far has me feeling like you're going to be shooting for something a bit more than a Rasa kit, though.

So you've basically got a blank check for this? I'd say that EK's kits are probably the best in terms of newb friendliness and performance while still being easy to upgrade.

Getting together custom parts for a loop is iffy for a first timer, though not unheard of, and if you've got a blank check, that might be the way to go.

As for the GPU, EK doesn't mill standoffs into their GPU blocks so their blocks (you stick them on with a bit of TIM or something) are a bit tricker to install if you've never changed a GPU cooler before.
