Thanks for your time but I wasn't asking for a parts swap. Also the memory you suggested specifies only working with LGA2011 chipsets but then you selected the Z77 board so that would never work. And i'm not sure what justified the 1KW power supply.
Thanks Dan, that explanation helps a bit. Seems like my decision to have everything but the top fans sucking air in seems like a good one then. Unless someone else chimes in i'll have everything suck air into the case except for the two 200mm fans at the top for exhaust. Thanks.
PC Part Picker is not exactly the best site to view or compare specs. Sorry bud. I went on Patriot's website to confirm what you were saying. The PSU was chosen based on the price at the time. It was cheaper than the one you selected and is Bronze Plus rated. Sometimes you can get a good deal on a higher wattage PSU. Yes, it is overkill for most single or even dual GPU configurations. Please do not take offense when we make suggestions. We are merely trying to help you. So I guess you already own the parts seen? Do you have a raid card?
