hmm.. Well the brands you

hmm.. Well the brands you should look into for PSU's is Antec, Corsair and Enermax imo.

Cases, cooler master, nexus, fractal design and also the P-series from antec

And I'd choose the fan controller when you know which case you'll go for :)

Well it's probably just Asus

Well it's probably just Asus who doesn't update their site. Many companies don't update their site like they should. If a shop sells that mobo and cpu together in a bundle, then it should deffinitely fit together ;)

Haha allright this is really getting interesting. I've noticed SSD prices are dropping extremely well, so I guess that's what made you decide to get one aswell?

I'd like to see some benchmarks with this too btw. ;p

awesome! If that's the only thing you have to do to get an e-atx mobo in that case though; I feel like corsair should just change that edge a little there.

Very nice! I'm currently in

Very nice! I'm currently in contact with EKWB. I'm probably going to make a watercooling loop for the CPU in my current casemod project with their hardware. (If they can send what I asked for, which I'll probably know by tomorrow :D)

Are you going to put any dye in that loop? Like a UV color or something? Also, which fittings are those and the tube size?

Yeah I've seen it before :) It seems hard to put the tubes on though, to make them go from one stick to the other. How many memory sticks will you have?

if you use tubes you could

if you use tubes you could let them go from one side to the other of the cpu. It doesn't nessecarely have to go from one stick to the next. That what I'd do with tubes though :P little fittings work too

this build is starting to look really awesome!

For that ram, could you use 90° angle fittings? I've also seen memory once where the WC fittings on it were faced up so you wouldn't have this isue.. I don't recal which memory it was though.
