ballin out i see, looks like a really nice build man. the only thing i would change is the cooler since you want to overclock those 92mm fans might be a little small. maybe something like this

Newegg.com - Noctua NH-U12P SE2 120mm SSO CPU Cooler if you can dish out the extra cash

Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8T-6GBRM
Go with this ram instead and use the savings to get the NH 120 like sniper said.

The 92 is good but the 120 is great

and I would go with this combo http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.540792
It's a HAF X instead of a 932 and a Sabertooth rather than rampage.

EDIT:
Whole build with the same gpu and cpu.
Better cooling, case, PSU, and price.

I was looking into the other Noctua coolers, but i don't want to have to block my memory, or have to take off the heatsinks.

The extra cash could be obtained.

I was also think of the H70, i love how small it is but, i find mixed reviews on it.


Do you know if the Cooler you put would make me have to change the Dominator's heatsinks?

Just seen the comment about the HAF X.

I have to say, i like the 932 Black better than the HAF X.

I like the full window of 932 Black. And i don't see much upgrades by going with the HAF X


Also your link brought me to my Cart. But i'm guessing it was to the Sabertooth + HAF X + i7 950?

Seen the combo, great deal. i just don't know if i could swap the Rampage for that Sabertooth

Corsair Hydro Series™ H70 - CWCH70

Very nice, i love the numbers that was getting for you guys. I have to say the heatsink for this build has given me the most crap. But i always seem to go back to the H70. All the other coolers seem fn HUGE


Thinking of switching to the HAF X - SABERTOOTH - 950.

ASUS Sabertooth Vs. ASUS Rampage III Formula

But is the Rampage III worth an extra $100?

No I don't think so for a gaming build unless you plan on some super crazy OC. Plus the Sabertooth has a 5yr warranty over the Rampage's 3yr.

The build I suggest with the H70 comes out to $1,194.95

Can't help but love those numbers. :P

It can't hurt just in case and it's still cheaper in that combo even though its more.
