Default Re: looking to build a new system

Depends how much you want to overclock.
Cooler Master V6 GT falls right in that price range, $60 ($45 after MiR).
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus/EVO or Corsair CAFA70 are also great at the <= $40 price-point.

I'd say go for the V6 then, looks like it was going toe-to-toe with the NH-D14 on an i5 750:

Hmm, I've been looking at this V6... I'm worried about RAM clearance.
Since it's the highest reviewed, I'm looking more at these RAM chips rather than the more expensive 1866 I have in that list
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB &#40;4 x 4GB&#41; 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 &#40;PC3 12800&#41; Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9
and after reading more about the Sabertooth motherboard, I'll also be getting this for cooling

This CPU cooler is monstrous
I have an Arctic 7 Freezer in mine right now and I thought that was large...
I'll stick the RAM in the cart, thanks
