    I got it on sale, and also might upgrade to crossfire with eyefinity in the future... or maybe just up to a 2k res monitor.

    Well, the monitor size doesn't make a lick of difference on the PSU, but if you got it on sale then I guess I can't argue it! Nice find. SeaSonic ftw!

    My question would be, why 90GB SSD in a $2.4k build?

    When I first built my computer, I only bought an 80GB Vertex 2 SSD (got returned a week later when I realized I needed to buy a new Windows 7 license) because at the time all I cared for was WoW and having Windows on the SSD. lol

    How times have changed...

    I meant that the 750 was for a possibility of crossfiring in the future if I decided to take the eyefinity path.

    I bought the SSD a little bit back when SSDs were kinda expensive, and just planned on having it for a boot drive and 1 or 2 games. However, currently, classes are in session so I don't have much time for gaming, but once I have time to play more, I will need more space and then I might get a bigger SSD, like a 240gb drive.

    EDIT: I am surprised that Deltrus hasn't made a comment about the i7 3770k... :P

    Go to a local hardware store for house stuff and buy a 50-100 pack of zip-ties. You'll have enough to undo them if you don't like it. ^_^

    Some of the connections not being used that go behind the metal panel wouldn't really fit, I had to put them behind the hard drive tower thing.

    You can pull zip-ties... really really really tight.

    My question would be, why have a poor 4+1 phase motherboard in a $2.4k build. Specially since he got a K processor. With that CPU power supply you can forget any kind of decent OC.
    He's lucky it's dual 8x PCI-E, i wonder if he checked it for that.

    4+1 phases is fine, even for overclocking; Anything beyond 8+2 is superfluous

    At least in the P8P67,z68 series, ASUS limited OC capabilities by removing LLC and manual vcore settings on their 4+1 phase motherboards. Don't know about the z77 but I'd stay away.

    Iirc we also had someone on this board blowing up the capacitors on a 4+1 phase mobo while attempting a higher overclock. Granted it was sandy-b.

    * shrugs

    I'm with Gigabyte and P55, but I still achieve a reasonable 50% overclock.

    So do i, but i have 8+2 drMOS (p55-gd80).
    I'm still saying 4+1 is the bare minimum you can buy, putting a 3570K on that and expecting to hit high is just silly.

    Am anxious to know if that'll remain the same in about a year. Neither is 4.4ghz really high.
    Frankly i don't really care that you do, the fact still remains that I find it a wierd purchase.
