430 watt PS is very important also a reliable brand such as
Enermax , Antec True Power etc... Water cooling is very effective
as long as you dont spring a leak .
I like the Cooler Master Aero fans 4-7 for air cooling .The color of the Heatsinks on your memory is a preference one doesnt cool better than the other and yes the heatsinks do help .
Thermaltake Armor A90
Corsair HX1000W PS
i7 2600k / Cooler Master Hyper N 520
Asus P8Z68-V Pro / Gen 3
8 GIG Corsair Vengeance
eVGA GTX 570
SB Audigy2 Platinum
Kingston Hyper X120 SSD
WIN 7 - 64b
LG Blue Ray Super Multi Burrner
Logitech THX Z560
3x120mm - 1x200 mm case fans
