I'm thinking of putting this as an intake fo dat new Corsair 250D.

I'm not sure if the case already comes with it. But here ya go from BitFenix: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835345035 Not sure how good it is, but my friend says it's pretty good, not the most quiet thing ever, but oh well. Looks pretty awesome though.
*Gasp* No I'm kidding. As said above, it's for the 250D.

The Jetflos look kind flimsy.

There's a dust filter. You'll have too little static pressure to deal with the front dust filter. The remaining/effective airflow will be too small to be useful.

Well, do you think a 140mm will be sufficient? BTW, the exhaust for the rear is kinda funny: 2 80mm side-by-side, and I'm not gonna put anything on those
How are Silverstone's Air Penetrators? (Please, no perverted jokes. [Ok, maybe 1 good one.])

The Bitfenix Spectre Pro looks nice, but what does 27dB sound like?

If you pop it up to max , you will (probably) be able to hear the blades cutting/wobbling through the air, put on your headphones (in my case the K240 Studios or the Q701s) you really can't hear it. But you can put it on a fan controller or use the headers in your m/b to turn it down to the point where you can't hear anything. The only reason you'd want to turn it up is if you are gaming hard or OCing hard, for whatever reason you'd do that.

I think I'll just pop in a Cougar V14H. The stupid case can support a 200mm at the front, but can't at least spend a bit more time and make it so that you can mount 2x120mm. Good job, Corsair.

Nice, how much was that build? It seems you were going for cost. Considering the PSU, motherboard, and that beefy GPU.

140mm is more than sufficient enough. Just make sure the one you choose has good static pressure. I don't know if the 250D has support for two 120mm front fans.

 

I just don't really like Corsair for whatever reason, although the new design style of the Obsidian cases, while nice, has quite a few design flaws.

 

Half decent. Here are a few sites that have done huge roundups of fans.

CM Jetflos aren't on there. I've only seen reviews of the 120mm version though.

I have the 140mm version of the Spectre Pro.  Looks pretty good, not incredibly loud either.  Does not seem to move a lot of air though.  I think the 140mm is rated at a similar decibel level, maybe 22dB.

 

Fans are annoying with open headphones :( 

Its another reason why I want to replace my HD6850, but I do not think a passive cooled GPU will fit in my case.

It's the same build bro.

Anyone have any comments on the p8z77-i deluxe? I kinda feel like getting that aiz77itxd water block for it since that daughterboard seems to get hot and it looks sexy, and I probably will just stay with ivy for a while being just a standard gamer and Linux user that doesn't need tones of power and these new processor updates seem to be doing jack **** honestly.

If you need any of the additional features on the Deluxe board, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. I agree with you on the socket/cpu choice. We're in a power consumption race right now, so if you don't care about that, you won't be missing out much when the Broadwell chips come out.

yeah the on board wifi seems to be a nice little feature and the funny thing is a 3570k has a lower tdp then the 4670k or 4770k...not that it matters as I'll be overclocking and should I reseat my processor? It does get kinda high even with an all in one cooler

The 3570k would have a lower TDP due to lack of hyper threading most likely, it adds a lot of heat. About the reseat, you don't mean de-lid the cpu by taking the heat spreader off? From everything I have read, it's too hit or miss as far as temp gains for it to be worth the effort in my opinion.
