    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.

    MoBo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128498

    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 )
