Got my 2nd SSD back from RMA. Updates & pics will be updated later today once I get off work.

3-7-2012
I was able to get the mushkin ram to run stable with a BIOS update, so those wont be RMA'ed.

3-6-2012
Got my parts in but had to do a RMA on one of the SSD's because the pcb wasn't mounted correctly inside the case. I also had to RMA the ram because it wasn't stable and wouldn't post 1/2 the time above 1200mhz @ 1.65 and stock is 1600mhz @ 1.5v.

All hardware but the gpu has been ordered.
Watercooling will be waiting tell nvidia kepler is out.
Im not sure if this cpu will be long term or not, depends on how well IB does.

what GPU do you plan on getting when kepler comes out?
Im not sure, just what ever scores highest on benchmarks. Im kinda leaning towards AMD just cause of multimonitor support.

Some parts came in. =D Now im just waiting on my PSU and order from performance pcs as well as my RMAs for a SSD and RAM.

Mid range (I think) keplers are believed to support NV Surround out of the box... so I'd hold off and see what Kepler brings. Best case scenario, kepler's everything you want and more... worst case, kepler isn't and the AMD equivalent comes down in price.
