Yea like i said, MX-4 thermal paste, its prob one of the 3 best thermal pastes. The other two being indigo xtreme which has a tricky application process and IC Diamond which has a pretty hefty price tag. AS5 was good, but its been out done. Generally though i use AS5 on motherboards mainly because it has a longer efective lifespan.

Since your overclocking this system and using it for gaming id get a better board if you can afford it. The asus is good, but if you could spend a extra $100 and get a EVGA classified board youll get rock solid overclocks and would lessen the risk of motherboard damage. You could get another brand gpu since evga gpu's are more expencive then say, gigabytes same card, and that would give you some more money for the board. Also no matter what board you get add 2 40mm fans on your list for the MOSFET heatsinks, ive seen too many people blow mosfets because of lacking airflow, you can easily attach them to the heatsinks with double sided sticky tape. If you want to see any pictures of my 40mm fans attached to my board to get ideas on what i mean send me a PM.

Well, about the PSU, you don't actually need a 750w if you're going for a single gpu.

and no, overclocking your system will not make it consume 300w more lol.

from the article

Now the question gets asked often enough so I thought I would address it in a basic sense right here; What PSU do I need for my system?

Well most *high end single GPU systems will only need a 500-550w unit. Most *high end dual GPU systems will need a 750-850w unit. Most *High End Triple & Quad GPU setups will be in the 1000-1500w category.

Simple systems like an Athlon II x4 & HD5770 would run on a solid 400-450w PSU.

There's no need to over buy in the PSU category as half the time you'll be wasting away that nice 80+ Badge by running a unit below 20% load at idle.

*High End qualifies as: Core i7 920 @ 4.4Ghz, GTX 580 with high air overclocks, 2 HDD, 1 SSD, 1 ODD, 5 x 120mm fans.
If your case has good airflow (which it has) you won't need 40mm fans over your mosfets, they're not going to blow up.

And yes, the Silver Arrow will work no problem, 1155 boards use the same mounting system as 1156, which the silver arrow includes

I definitely wouldn't run that build on a 550W psu
