    Thank you so much again. I usually order form newegg as I am in Las Vegas, and they are in Southern California. Even with no extra charge for shipping, usually get it in one or two days. And they are reputable. For the past couple years have two external 2tb toshiba's that I can plug in or out.
    I am going to order the processor tomorrow, newegg has a 20.00 promo off. I was going to ask you about cooling. The case has many fans, but was going to go with some liquid cooling. I think most cooling systems are around 100 dollars, anyone in particular you like? There are several that are all within about ten to twenty dollars of each, but again not sure which is best for the money, and compatible with the Intel processor. The case is full size so should have plenty of room for everything. From what I understand on full size cases lines are not long enough on some items.
    If you ever get to Las Vegas, I owe you dinner.
    Perhaps will purchase another Samsung 500gb pro and do as you suggest?

    Keep in mind that if any of the new equipment is defective, you only have 30 days from the date of purchase to return/exchange the defective parts to Newegg. Otherwise you will need to RMA the faulty parts to the manufacturer.

    Many of the $100+ AIO cpu water cooling kits have similar performance, but some are significantly less noisy than others.
    Check out the most recent AIO reviews at HardOCP to see which units are best.
    Be sure to check out some of the higher end Cooler Master AIO coolers.
    I think that your Storm Stryker case has a 140mm rear case fan and this might be the easiest radiator to install, but....
    ....you will probably find that 240 - 280mm radiators provide better cooling and the fan's noise levels might be better or worse.
    Another option, you might be able to remove the Stryker's top 200mm fan and attach the radiator to the top of the case.
    It doesn't look like you could easily attach the radiator to the front/side or bottom of your case.
    Do a web search using: storm stryker computer case radiator installation and you'll find helpful links and videos that will give you ideas as to what will or won't work.
    You definitely won't have a half-fast system with a second 500GB Pro ssd where you will have a 1000GB raid0 setup.

    Did you see the second memory price list that I just added to post #10?

    I assume that you are going to select a 4x8GB kit that is listed as being compatible with your motherboard on the Asus memory QVL list or the memory manufacturer's list.

    OUCH!!!

    The Cooler Master Glacer 240L AIO Liquid CPU Cooler's price is $200 at Newegg and it's original price was $130.

    The Cooler Master Nepton 240M is currently $109.99 after $10.00 rebate card.
    Cooler Master Nepton 240M - CPU Water Cooling System, All-In-One Kit with 240mm Radiator and 2 Silencio Fans - Newegg.com

    Take a look at the following reviews:

    This looks like it's a pretty good unit to me.

    Not much left to buy. Any miscellaneous items I might need. Only looked at it once, but it looks like there is a slot in front of the case, where you can slide in an extra ssd, and pull out at anytime? Not sure what feature is,
