Exclamation New PC, Final revision, plz take a look.

Well I have revised all my parts & here is what I was able to come up with (see the link below)

This computer will be used for gaming, & for me to learn overclocking (maybe not a great idea lol, ill be careful I promise )

COOLER MASTER cosmos S
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811119150
I was looking at 2 cases the Cosmos Stacker and Cosmos S. Both are very similar in price. Cosmos s in my opinion looks better & all set for water cooling, something I might do in the future.

DFI LP LT P35 T2R LGA 775 Intel P35 Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136039
This has probably been the toughest decision for me. Because I am not going for SLI the P35 mobo looked like the best choice for me. This mobo has 3 pci slots that I need and I heard great things about the overclocking ability as well as great support for Quad Cores

EVGA 512-P3-N871-AR GeForce 9800 GTX(G92)
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814130339
I have a 24” monitor and this single card solution should work great for me. I know that 8800GS offers a similar performance, but I am solid on this decision

ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ800 ATX12V
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817814014
This has also been a tuff choice for me. I know that this psu is overpriced, but I do want the lights that comes with it & the ability to have the removable cables. This psu comes with a lot of extra wires, everything that I might need in the future. 800W is for a future sli that I might do when Nahelm will become available.

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231166
I heard great things about this 1066 ram. Not 2 many people had problems with it. I really hope it will be a good overcloker.

Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB (X2)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136218
I originally was thinking about going with the 7200.11 32mb cache hdd, but after reading reviews this hdd is actually faster. I am still deciding if I should go for raid 0

ASUS Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW (X2)
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16827135156
Don’t know much about this CD-ROM, but people on newegg seems to like it. If you can suggest something better please do, keep in mind I’m trying to have a silent pc.

Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 64-bit
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=32-116-493
In order for me to use the 4G vista 64 is the main option, I decided to go for the SP1 ready to save time.

D-Link DGL-4500 Draft Xtreme N Gaming Router
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833127243
This looks like the best gaming router available. Even though I will be suing hardwired connection, I still have people in the house who need wireless signal.

CORSAIR CMXAF1 Fans
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835704001
This is just something something to keep my ram cool after overcloking

Scythe KM01-BK "KAZE MASTER" 5.25" Bay Fan Controller
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811998038
To have the ability to control the speed of my fans sounds great, especially when I go to sleep to keep the noise down.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 Quad Core
http://www.ncixus.com/products/index.php?sku=29316
I know some might say go for Q6600, but I’m solid in this decision.

Thermalright ULTIMA-90
http://www.ncixus.com/products/index.php?sku=25999
Because the Cosmos S case has the 200mm fan on the side, not 2 many big heatsinks will fit in it, and I don’t want to remove the fan. That is why I decided to go for the Ultima 90 and not the True 120. Ultima 90 has almost the identical performance

Noctua NF-B9-1600 92MM
http://www.ncixus.com/products/index.php?sku=28452
This is a 92mm fan for my Ultima 90

Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120MM
http://www.ncixus.com/products/17749/SFF21F/Scythe/ (X5)
I will be suing this fan to replace my stock fans in the Cosmos S case

SAMSUNG Black 1.44MB 3.5" Internal Floppy Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16821103203
Some people might find it silly having a floppy drive in a gaming pc, but I got it primarily for bios updates

This is my main list, I also will be getting some miscellaneous stuff like PC cable ties…etc

My main question is, do I have everything to build and overclock the PC? (I do have thermal paste already) As u can see I am getting 2 hdd, 2 cd-rom and 1 floppy, will my mobo come with all the wires for it? Will I be needing any other wires for like maybe fans or something?

My 2nd question is, I want to be able piggyback 3 fans on one out of 4 fan controllers what wire do I need for that? And will my fan controller be able to handle 3 fans on one controller?

Your feedback is greatly appreciated,

Thank you.

I don't think, that having a 200mm fan on the side is a good idea as it would have a negative effect on airflow, and would be creating a lot of noise without having a positive effect on temperatures. The ideal setup is to have fans only on the rear/top and in the front of the case. Perhaps you should test it with and without side fan, and if you have better results without, you can RMA the ULTIMA 90 and get a better HSF.

IMO some of the components are serious overkill. You won't need 800W unless you're buying a skulltrail platform and you're SLI'ing 8800 ULTRAs. The 9800GTX draws about 150W absolute maximum and the Q9450 is 45nm.

just order it already! You have been thinking of getting it for like.. how many months was it again?
IMO looks like a really nice computer, but I can't help thinking that you are wasting a lot of money on some parts, like the psu and case. I mean, the total for your psu and case is about $450. You can already build a very nice pc with that money.

If you can have the side fan used as an exhaust, I would think it could help.
