I agree....I'm just a nervous nelly and don't want to run into issues and then have to keep bugging people for help. I'm sure their first response would be "ITS NOT ON THE LIST". I'm sure it would be fine though.
Yea I see it form a practical perspective and getting that C300 just doesn't seam worth it, haha. But you should be good to go with that set of RAM. I've seen a lot of people using XMS3 ram and not having any problems.

If no, the Noctua D14 is overkill. You can save some money by going for a Xigmatek Dark Knight, which is still OC-friendly up to around 4GHz.

If yes, you might look into ditching the i7 960 for a 930 or a 950 if cheaper. You'll hit the same clocks since you're limited by your cooling anyways. The Noctua D14 is a solid choice in this case.



It doesn't matter if the memory is not in the list. RAM is RAM. As long as you don't try shoving DDR3 in a DDR2 socket, or raise the voltage up to 2v, you'll be fine.
Overclocking...yeah. I've never had a system where I could.
The 930, 940, 950, 960 are all within $20 of each other. So yeah. Of course I went bigger.

The reason I went with the cooler I did was because of the case. It has 3 huge 230 fans and my thinking was to get the heat out of the box with the style I selected. I was afraid that with those bigger fans turning at a lower rpm it would circulate the heat inside the case from the style of cooler you guys are recommending.

- Swap out the Hitachi hard drives and go for some Samsung F3 1tbs. They are the fastest 7200 RPM hard drives (faster than the Western Digital Caviar Blacks) and are rather cheap.
- Lose the H70 and go with the Noctua NH-14 which is currently tied for the best air coolers out.
- Lose the two Corsair SSDs. Get a second C300 and use those for raid 0 for a boot/program drive. 2TB of storage from the Samsung F3s is already going to be way fast.

^That but I would recommend the CM V6GT and save a few dollars or maybe even the Hyper 212+ if you're not looking to overclock too much

Those large fans are actually quite good at getting heat out. HAF cases work quite well at getting the heat out. The Noctua NH-14 will actually out perform the H70 while costing less.

I recommended the Noctua just because it was the best cooler you can get (I say best because a stock Silver Arrow doesn't come with fans so stock vs stock the Noctua wins!!). The Hyper 212+ would be my next vote if OP doesn't plan on overclocking much. IMO go with the Noctua if you can afford it and overclock that thing up to 4.0 or above.

Well I love my NH-D14 but I made my suggestion if the OP is looking to save money. If the OP wants to get BEST cooling why not go water eh?

The Noctua it is! Thanks. I'll save....$5 getting the Noctua.

Savings so far:
Power Source: $80
MEM: $30
CPU Fan: $5
HD: $10 (more)

So...$105 making those changes.

Thanks guys!

Switching to Sandy Bridge is actually a great idea for this budget. Didn't even think about that. The only thing is that 2200mhz ram isn't completely necessary. I really don't think OP will see a difference between 1600 and 2200 ram unless he's benching. In reality I've overclocked my old set of RAM from 1333 to 1800 and didn't notice any difference until I started doing some super-pi runs.
