My System Specs

Default Yet another build (Haswell)

Well, I almost pulled the trigger on an Ivy Bridge build. But (I think) I am happy that I did not. But I thought I'd bring my parts list up for scrutiny by those in the know. Let me know what you think please!

The parts that are missing I already have and plan to reuse. The cooling solution is going to be a custom loop as soon as I can afford it. But for now I plan to put this together next month (hopefully)!

Looks good to me, assuming you will use the features you are paying extra for in the Deluxe.

I opted for the Deluxe because the Expert has thunderbolt I doubt I'll use that. And the only other thing I (probably) won't use is the second LAN port. I wanted the colours of this board because of the build I want to do and I am just so sick of the red/black thing I have used for six years.

That MSI looks pretty decent for a great price though. Maybe I'll paint over the acrylic and never open the case.

lol, as far long as your aware.. it's really not really an issue unless your looking to get over 4.3 anyway, though some are easily hitting 4.7 - 4.8.

I would recommend the pro for your needs. It is in the $200 range, much cheaper than the Deluxe without sacrificing much other than useless extra phases and onboard igpu outputs.
