Does it use distilled water or special type of liquid?

It's a closed-loop cooler, you don't change the liquid in them.

Just finished installing windows on my SSD.

HOLY FUCK

This is fast, I might update my previous statement..... maybe get a 250 GB SSD so you can store more (BUT NOT ALL) of your programs on the SSD. SSD's are still not necessary or even suggested for storage of more mundane files like videos, images, etc.

....  lol @ KM

Anyway I am using a 240GB.  To be more effective in space you can still put steam on the SSD,  but for the games you don't use as often check out the Steam Mover

LOL km, have you never used an SSD before? They are a thing of beauty when it comes to access time.
I am doing exactly that now after reading your article. It isn't really necessary to have ALL SSD, especially with the higher prone to failure rate. I'm just going to do 250gb SSD + 1tb western digital caviar black. Should be more than enough for me.

Excidium, thank you for the water cooling suggestion. I will have to buy a cooling solution anyways since the 3930k intel processor doesn't come with stock cooling. Might as well get this since it works well. Thanks!

EDIT: Updated the first post with current things I have been considering and changes. Everything is still tentative and I am more than willing to hear suggestions from you guys about the parts. Especially if performance and price is much better going for another solution. Anything I can do to get price down without compromising a substantial about of performance lose would be nice.

Ram, anything 1600MHz, it is quad so go for 4x4GB,  its cheap and if you get a mobo with 8 you can still easily upgrade.



Enzo, in order to run the sabertooth in quad channel, is there any way of doing it with 8-12gb of ram? I don't need 16gb but I would still like to get the performance benefit with quad channel. I wouldn't mind talking to you on steam about this whole thing if you get a chance. Have some questions that I am sure you could help me with.

PS: When looking at ram, is there a significant performance difference or a better brand when comparing types of ram? I see a lot of people get the CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 and then the G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900). Should I even go for these brands? Is there one that would offer better price and performance or performance in general?

Does it provide any performance advantage over the corsair series? They are exactly the same price.

Currently there is a seasonic on sale with newegg. Anyone have this psu or do you guys think it will support/be good enough for my set up? Thoughts?

Comes out in the end to be 119.99 but it ends today. Think it is worth snagging for the build?

That's what I got, A+ RAM

Make sure the Frequency is the same, RAM is priced base on marketing (GAMER RAM) and speed (1600 MHz) and type (DDR3). Don't buy RAM based on marketing. Buy RAM that matches your motherboards Front Side Bus (FSB) speed.

Don't skimp on a power supply. Size or quality. $2k machine can be fried in weeks. Gold cert. is also really good. Can go little smaller size with a good cert. But I always like to over build, so a quality 850/750 would be good.
