  1. I am building a new rig. These are all the parts I'm going to need, except an SSD, which I'm still searching for.
    What do you think of this:

    There is some finnish text, but don't mind, you'll get the point ;)

    Please recommend, comment and improve the setup! Don't wanna go wrong, now do I? :)

    Thanks guys!

    Looks like a very solid build, if you plan to overclock I'd probably bump up to 750 watts on the power supply.

    Did you check the measurements for the Shinobi working with the Silver Arrow? it is huge. I have mine in a HAF 932 and it comes within 1/2" of the side panel. Also be aware that the tall heatsinks on the Ripjaw will mean that you will most likely not be able to use them in the DIMMs closest the CPU socket.(because of the Silver Arrow clearance) I ended up using Corsair XMS 3 2000Mhz (low profile heatsink) to populate all of the DIMMS. You are aware that the GTX 570 you chose is a triple slot right? just a consideration if you plan on using more of your PCIE slots for future double or triple SLI.
    Just some things to check out. :)
