Sandy Bridge Build. Take a peek.

NZXT Phantom PHAN-001BK Black Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

ASUS P8P67 DELUXE (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

SAMSUNG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA CD/DVD Burner - OEM

Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC064MAG-1G1CCA 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Western Digital Caviar Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit English 1-Pack - OEM

CORSAIR Hydro H70 CWCH70 120mm High Performance CPU Cooler

Mouse & Keyboard I'm getting at Amazon.

Now I have some questions...

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz or i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz or any of the Bloomfields.
I want one thats powerful and will last me years. I heard the i7 is mainly for movie editing and programs like that. I don't know anything about the Bloomfields other than they're pricey. I plan on overclocking either one. Which one would be right for me?

CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-850HX 850W ATX12V 2.3 or CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-1000HX 1000W ATX12V 2.2
What would be needed for the GTX570 in SLI with the system overclocking?

8GB Ram: Corsair Dominator or Vegeneace? Which one is better and are they compatible with my motherboard?

NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen fan controller
I'm mainly getting this for the fans but also the temp. monitor and alarm. Is there an alternative to this? I'd like to know my temp. at all times and an alarm if anything ever goes wacky.

Tell me if I'm missing anything. Thanks!

EDIT: BTW, for graphics card, I'm using 1920x1080 HDTV.

Most likely the dominators and vengeance will perform almost the same. I believe the dominators are higher quality tho. You can get RAM with much better timings for roughly the same price tho if you look around on newegg for a little bit, cause typically corsair's RAM is expensive compared to some others.

Pretty good system there, my suggestions :

1) Go with the 2500k,it overclocks like crazy even with a decent air cooler.2600k is NOT needed unless u r into hardcore video encoding etc.
2)The 850w PSU will be fine with 570SLI and even has some room to spare
3)Go with the Dominator RAM,it overclocks better.
4)Pretty ok fan controller,if u need a bigger screen to monitor better temps have a look at : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-004-_-Product

You cannot use that motherboard with a Bloomfield processor. Also Sandy Bridge is a far superior architecture, go with that.

Can anyone double confirm this? I want to make sure my PC has no chance of burning out. I want it to be cool and healthy for years. I can afford the 1000 watt if it would be better. Remember: MAJOR overclocking.

Does anyone know of a good case with filters for the fan? I've read many reviews and they all seem to have problems, like lack of filters across the case and this and that. Any good ones that actually have filters all over the case? Or are filters not good for cases?
