I am concerned as well. I am asking about it in the case forum.

These enthusiast power supplies we all have (high-end Corsair, Antec, SeaSonic, Enermax, Silverstone, etc.) can take a lot more abuse than you think. I have tell people this a lot. These are heavy duty, precision engineered electron pushers, not tinker toys.


About why I don't care for Corsair Dominators in your build:
They OC nicely, but it's really not necessary for Sandy bridge since you're not dealing with FSB/BClock. The OC of the 2500k will be done on the CPU Multiplier, and not affecting the RAM like in other previous generation sockets.

the way i learned was from reading some how-tos from maximum pc magazine or watching youtube videos. you can learn a lot from those sources. anyway, before powering it on make sure all the power cables are connected, don't close the case until you see that it turns on and posts fine (otherwise you'll have to open it up anyway to make sure all power cables are connected), make sure the power supply is connected to an outlet (pretty common sense), make sure your power button cable is connected to the motherboard (or use the on button on the mobo). also i would suggest getting shorter ram (for clearance issues with the silver arrow), a more modern power supply (like the one in the combo suggested by PowerTrip), and a graphics card with an aftermarket cooler. If you go stock you're probably want to upgrade the cooler later one anyway. For the aftermarket gtx 580, these fit the bill

Also i think these combos will benefit you the most

The cooler might not fit with the RAM, Id go with an corsair H70, just so you don't have clearance issues. Also you don't need more than an 850w for SLI, and that case is horrendous, just get the normal HAF-X.

I was looking at these Ripjaws as well. But too much/too rich? What would you suggest? The Corsair Vengeance in the combo?

The combo is $275,

The Ripjaws X (+promo) and HAF X together comes out to $280.

I would go with whichever has shorter heatsinks. In this case it's the G.Skill Ripjaws X.

Also i think these combos will benefit you the most

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.624958
I definitely like the use of these combos better.

I had thought that you couldn't apply promo codes to an item in a combo but I just did it and it works with the Ripjaws X.

Any of those two GTX 580's would be great.



As for building it yourself, I find this video to be one of the most detailed yet simple to understand:

Answering to your previous question, a Corsair HX750 (750W power supply) would be more than enough for a x2 GTX570 SLI

As of future proof on a GTX580 SLI, a Corsair HX850 would be more than enough

If you need anything else, we're here to help you out!

Also keep in mind for gaming 4GB of RAM will be more than enough.

I'd suggest some G-Skill Ripjaws X @ 1600Mhz CL7, you don't really need more than 4GB of RAM.

EDIT:

Those 2 Combos are great! Go grab them now! They're great for the price and perfect RAM too (Even though you don't need 8GB, but that's a great price).

As of GPU, I'd grab the DirectCU II version of the GTX580, great cooler, great temperatures, and great overclocking capacity.
