Just an FYI, I saw 100 less watts than my 580 with 680. In game with a 2600k, I barely tapped 300 watts with one. Bastard was too loud tho. Have fun with ur upgrade!!

The bf3 runs better on 8 claims eventually got to me and I tried corsairs low profile low voltage vengeance line...2x4. I got 7e's and never passed more than a few intel burn runs. Upping imc vtt and vdimm did nothing. Same results with some mushkin 1.5v cl8 2x4's. Finally, I gave these $40 wonder toys a shot. Not only are they stable @ 1.35 cl7, but I'm running 4x4 with no changes on the voltage front for imc or CPU! Worst packaging ever, sure. But between the intel ssd and this ram, I can sleep the pc again for the first time in a year without having to worry about any crashing. Thankfully, I've yet to see a blue screen with this combo. A+, highly recommend this ram.
Edit: They are actually shorter than the dimm clips, making ram sink vs heat sink fights a thing of the past.


 

I've had tons of trouble with 4 x 2GB of OCZ Gold 1600 and a MSI P67-GD65. I read some awesome things about the Samsung ram though and went for it. As for the packaging- it really wasn't that bad. I just opened it with scissors.

 

As for the SSD comment- yeah, I went for reliability over pure speed.

Just wait until Ivy Bridge comes out, current 1155 boards will be cheap by then and with a bios update will work with Ivy's. When ATi releases there next 7990 and 7870 series, the prices will be very competitve with nvidia's offerings by then, sell your 7970 and grab a cheaper 680 by then.

My build is finally up and running. I haven't had a chance to try overclocking or anything yet. As for now, all I can say is SSD's are SO worth it! One of the best PC purchases I've ever made for sure.

CPU: AMD Fx6100 @ 4.2ghz with Cooler master N520. Idles at 25C now that it isn't as cold out and the house is warmer, tops out at 43C or so. I may bump it to 4.4ghz when I get some more fans.
RAM: 16gb Corsair DDR3 1600mhz 4x4
GPU: Sapphire HD 6870
SSD: Samsung 64gb
HDD: Seagate 1TB 7200rpm
Case: Cooler Master E430 case.
MOBO: MSI 990XA-GD55

 

What is the quietest fan out there? Performance isn't a HUGE deal because i have stock case fans and one OLD one right now.

Hackintosh would've been a better choice for you.

 

My build, which is a little oudated:

Phenom II X6 1100t@4.5GHz

Corsair H70

HIS Reference 2GB 6950 flashed to 6970 bios

2x4GB Corsair Dominator advertised timings

W7 Home Premium

And for the person above me, Noctua has really quiet fans, I also like Scythe's Gentle Typhoon, but they're discontinued on newegg, I think they still have them on Amazon though.
