I am getting NCIX to build it, just because they will do testing to make sure everything works, if something doesn't it gets replaced right away...only cost $50 more.

Well, I just saw this on the ASUS Rampage II Extreme review, which I've never seen on any other review:

**Due to Intel spec definition, DIMMs of DDR3-1333 or above are out of spec. Please refer to ASUSTeK Computer or user manual for the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors List).

May have to change my memory...damn it!

Well, I checked the QVL and it is qualified, don't need to change my memory...although DDR3-1800 or -2000 would be nice!

Have fun waiting 2 weeks for NCIX to build. I ordered 3 times with them and everytime I asked them to build it would take them 2 weeks. So I just canceled. Bad service, only good for price matches.

Yowzers.......as mentioned a number of Threads ago, a far nicer build could be had for ...think I had it at $3500......5K build and no SLI / Crossfire....?.....Cheap Case?....no 1200W PSU....(For Tri Sli..which that kind of coin could yield)...anyhow...

...and a lot of $$$ to waste evidently.
Really...for 5K I would expect a real killer kick-arse System....with all that said I'm sure you'll enjoy it!!

I like the CM HAF 932, does exactly what I need it to do...and I've read the reviews on it.

I don't want SLI, and yes I will be doing Crossfire, watercooling, OC'ing, more HDDs, blu-ray in the near future...everything does not have to be done right away.

Thats my point Micheal......with some selective wise choices in Hardware...you would already have all that for 5K and more.
