My System Specs

Default Parts ordered

Well parts have ordered, switched the power supply to - Buy Seasonic S12D850 850W ATX12V 70A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 120MM San Ace Fan - S12D850 In Canada.

I did not order the Solid State Drive yet, I already purchased a blu-ray drive,and I am not worrying about hdd's as I have plenty here to use.

I added the Noctua NH-D14 and I have a NF-P12 to use so the NH-D14 will have 2 x NF-P12's on it for dual fan configuration, ordered 6 x NF-P14FLX to use as case fan's so will have a total of 7 NF-P14FLX's in the case (love that the fans will fit into a 120MM space)

I added Arctic Cooling MX-3 Thermal Compound to the order as well as - Buy Logisys ML12RD 12IN 18 Red LED in Acrylic Tube 4PINS Molex Connector 12V DC No Inverter Needed - ML12RD In Canada. x 2 which I was able to price match for just under $5 bucks each

and I switched the Ram to - Buy G.SKILL F3-16000CL9T-6GBTD Trident PC3-16000 6GB 3X2GB DDR3-2000 CL9-9-9-24 Core i7 Memory Kit - F3-16000CL9T-6GBTD In Canada. (just the one kit for now will add a second later as long as no clearance issues)

I am still going with the X58 Classified 3 SLI Board and the i7 920 D0.

I was originally going to switch to the i7 860 but from what I have read the 1366 is better for higher ram intensive programs like rendering stuff in photoshop and maya which I will be using.

Work log will be coming once I get the parts.

Oh yeah was trying to think of a name to suit the Corsair 800D with the Black and Red theme, I am a WoW fan (insert loud groan here), lore wise, so I was thinking of calling it Cataclysm any other ideas would be great as something original would be way better but unfortunately I am not really creative today.

And please let me know if you think I should change the ram to a DDR3-1600 set for overclocking, I really like how the tridents look and liked the review done here by Mac. It seems like they hold up performance wise and the lifetime warranty is a bonus.
EVGA X58 Classified 3 SLI / i7 920 D0 / Corsair XMS3 DDR3-1600 2gb x 6 / Noctua NH-D14 / eVGA GTX 680 / Corsair Obsidian 800D / Be Quiet Dark Power Pro 850w
