My System Specs

Default

1st thing. You've got a LGA1156 chip and a LGA1366 board. If you want to use the i7 860 or lower, you need a P55 chipset board. The only CPU's that currently go in the X58 boards are the i7 900 series.

I'd get the new Apogee XT in place of the GTZ. Better temps, same price range. And condensation is not an issue with watercooling. Leaks are.

What's your planned use for this machine? The GPU is low end for a gaming machine.
