    Red face [Final] Result for my new build.

    This is what me and a few others came up with, are there any last opinions or recommendations on this build? Before I pay I would like to be 100% sure on it, and make sure everything fits together nicely.

    I plan on using 2 monitors, but only the other for internet purposes.

    Don't skimp on the cooler if you are already spending so much. Go ahead and get something that is a step up from that one.

    Any recommendations? Someone said the NH-D14, but it is sold out atm.

    Honestly, wait for it to come back in stock. It is an absolute beast!

    Corsair Hydro H100 + 4 Scythe Gentle Typhoon 3000RPM if you want to push power to the max with OCing and temps as low as possible.
    Corsair Hydro H80 + 2 Scythe Gentle Tyhpoon 3000RPM if you still want good cooling whilst less space taken.

    Those are alternatives.

    Curious.. do you have a Microcenter near by where you live? Can grab the 2500k for 179.99 from them! Also I'd change out your PSU for a Corsair HX series.. those things are phenomenal.. but maybe I am just biased

    Is this a dual GPU setup? If not, you won't need a 850W PSU to power it. Only reason to go with such a powerful PSU is if you intend to SLI in the future. I would also recommend that you swap those RAM modules for low profile ones, as that will limit compatibility issues with after-market coolers. As mentioned by others, I'd also recommend to get a better HS right away. A Corsair A70 is absolute minimum for such a high-end build. The Corsair Hydro series are great if you want to have a closed-loop water cooler. I'd personally wait until the NH-D14 is back in stock, but there are alternatives (like the Thermaltake Frio or the Noctua NH-C14).

    So:
    Heatsink: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835608020
    PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151088
    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233196

    I would also personally go with another case, but there is nothing wrong with the DF-85.

    They also have a combo deal with the 2500k and some Z68 and P67 mobos - $60 off. In-store pickup only.

    The Hyper212+ is still a great CPU cooler. I use it on my overclocked 2600K. If you buy a larger cooler then chances are that the cooler will interfere with that RAM. I have that Corsair RAM and it is tall. Corsair, G. Skill and Mushkin also make the same RAM in a low profile version and I would choose that regardless of which cooler you purchase.

    O ya forgot about that too. Last month I picked up a 2600k and z68 asus mobo when they had the 80$ instant savings. Microcenter has some insane deals!

    And ya.. if you aren't planning to run sli or what not.. you won't need a 850watt PSU. You'd be better off getting a higher quality one at lesser watts for a similar price. Not that the Cooler Master you selected is THAT bad.. but the PSU Marest linked would be much better especially if you plan to OC. Seasonic X series are amazing PSUs. I had an X series in my last machine but decided to give the Corsair HX series a shot.

    And I can give a +1 for the NH-D14.. has been fantastic so far. (but is gettin' replaced with a water coolin' setup once my case is finished )

    Alright, I am switching out the PSU's the the one Marest Linked, and the NH-D14 JUST came in stock, add them and ordering NOW!

    Everything is good and on its way!

    Again thank you to every1 who helped me put everything together and make it perfect!
