Seems pretty sweet.  I can't see any issues with that rig.  High-end FTW!

Only thought I have is that if you are planning on over clocking the cpu extensively Asus themselves recommended the rog line and the hero is a little cheaper than the sabertooth, but I definitely dig the reliability that comes with the tuf series of boards

That is wrong though, JJ himself said that even a board like the z87 pro or deluxe will be able to oc greatly but they will be limited by how good the cpu chip is. If you get a bad chip, it might only get 4.2GHz on an ROG board or another board


Hey there. You are looking mighty fine today, have my virtual cookie!  :ph34r:

The rog has a higher quality vrm but without high performance cooling you won't be able to see the difference because of haswell's inherent heat output

I would suggest that you check and see if your psu is haswell compatible but other than that the build looks good build question, did you check the differences between NVidia & Amd video rendering & multiple monitors

Also runs hotter and louder but has a little more raw power than nvidia

Nvidia runs colder and quiter but it a little less powerful

Aka (amd gets 5-10more fps)

Whom

Whom the blot thickens, I wonder why he is not using Amd  for video editing & multiple moniters

PSU will work and be fine with Haswell. When it comes to "Haswell compatibility" it is whether or not the PSU will support the lower power states that Haswell features. Which is nice for keeping the power bills down.

Just a heads up...every review I have seen for the Corsair Air 540 case notes above average noise levels for other products in that range.

Thanks for all the feedback, i can get nvidia cards at a discount, the main reason im getting one, or i could go up to a 690 for another 120usd

Sound levels of the case are not much of a problem as i wear headphones most of the time
