Wow, looking very nice indeed. However one or two suggestions.

Corsair Dominator is 1.65V while SB is like max 1.6V!, go for Corsair Vengeance instead.
Why not go for Maximus extreme? Its got a more, extreme look, but that's just me.
If you can fork out so much money, why not get AX850?

Didn't even notice that. Correct, you want to get RAM that's under or at 1.6v.

also, the Maximum extreme is sold out on newegg, plus the I need at PCIe x1 slot for my wireless card (though I use LAN) and a PCI slot for my soundcard, which it doesn't provide.

Perfect!!!

The Vengeance RAM is amazing, I have it in my sig rig below. Only gripe people have with it are its timings.. But I don't overclock RAM usually, I just get it stable at advertised timings and voltages after I overclock my CPU.

Yes. Also G.Skill RipjawsX are also good for memory I believe.

SB can do 1.65v, dunno why there telling you it can only handle 1.6v. I am assuming this is a gaming rig only, so make sure to disable hyper threading in bios when you get it. You'll only need 4, not 8. Far as the ram goes-i got the same ram, and got 7.9 in WEI.
