Better re-think your SCSI harddrive. According to what I saw for board specs, the board doesn't support SCSI.
It does support IDE & SATA and RAID.
Just some input to try to help.

I want to help you out here. I personally dont like the look of the thermaltake cases mostly because they have too much going on. And your not going to need any of the fan controllers if you were looking at watercooling. Becuase i reccomend to you a very better completely internal watercooling. I reccomend also to you the chieftec aluminum case. THe swiftech system requires the water block for the cpu and vga, the pump and the radiator with only 1 fan. thats right only 1 fan you wont need to run anymore fans at all. only 1! so basically its compleletly silent. Imagine the lightweight aluminum case, with the complete internal watercooling and you can sleep by it too.

P4 2.26 ghz, Intel d850emv2 mobo, 768mb of pc800, sony 4x dvd-rw, teac burner, nvidia ti4600 graphics, enermax 330watt ps
4 silent uv fans, cold cathodes in full tower antec case, round ide cables

SOny vaio 2.66 ht ghz modded into raidmax case with green cold cathodes.
P4 2.8ghz HT, 512mb ddr, Intel KD865gbfl, onboard video, raidmax case, blue cathodes, round ide, loomed wires, 4x dvd burner, wd sata 80gb hard drive
Intel d865perl, 2.8ghz northwood, antec sonata, wd caviar 20gb, Corsair 512mbx1 for now. 380watt psu, ati 9600, dvdrom cdrw floppy in black too match case

Default Buyer Beware!

I too have just recently purchased a new computer with the Asus Sk8v motherboard and as of 4/13 am still installing the OS. However, it took me over two weeks to figure out why it wouldn't boot. Come to find out that this particular board will only accept certain kinds of ram. I had the Corsair PC3200 XMS (512*4) and the computer wouldn't even POST.

Look here for the types of RAM that it will accept:

Hope that I could catch you in time.

ummm thx a ton 4 the help guys, i didn't buy components yet so this is great, could someone post the best ram and hd (from newegg) that will work here? (sry i dont like charts, and they dont like me )
also thx for the input mrzeedler, but i dont sleep by my comp, and i dont mind the noise either, and i dont mind external parts so that water cooling system is fine, i need the fans because it's proc cooling only (i think)even if they aren't, they are WICKED cool and as for the controls, i can multi-task (just like this rig damn well better be able to do )
