the Kingwin revolution is 31 bucks. Same thing as the xigmatek. Depending on what review you read. It shows the OCZ V2 coming in first.

Tuniq has worked really well thus far.. I've been able to get my existing system up to 3.0 ghz stable.

Does my PSU look ok for the new setup. I want a 4870 but was also considering a crossfire setup with two lesser cards. What would the recommendation be on this?

Rosewill Thor V2 Full Tower - i5 3570K Stock W/ CORSAIR Hydro Series H60
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600
Asus Sabertooth Z77 Mother Board - GTX 680 FTW+ w/Backplate 4GB
SAMSUNG 840 Pro 128GB SSD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD
Asus DVDRW 24x - CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX850 PSU
Samsung P2770FH ToC Rose Black 27" Monitor - Logitech G15 Keyboard
MX518 Mouse - Logitech x540 5.1 Speakers
