I was thinking this but yours is cheaper and I trust it to be reliable. Corsair 1050W HX Series Modular PSU | Ebuyer.com

Silverstone makes most of Corsair's PSUs. The Silverstone is also 80+ Gold certified.

Oh right! Thank you then! Will be using that one! Also, the site you linked to me containing your psu, is that a trusted site to buy hardware from or not?

It's one of the few companies that I could find selling directly to your region.

Also, I am very partial to Gigabyte motherboards. For my money, I would recommend this Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 Socket 2011 Motherboard - Scan.co.uk

Thanks, a couple of reasons why I won't be getting that though! Firstly it is about 40 more (about $64). Secondly I don't know if it is fixed but there is a bug with the cpu when o/cing and it was only the asus bios that was immune to them, this could have changed though. Both are great mobos but I will be sticking with the Asus because of the price difference, thank you though!

Definately worth the 20 ($32) then.

That may be a good choice. If you wish to try the Noctua cooler instead, make sure to get the Socket 2011 version:

Noctua.at - sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria"!

That's not because it includes the Socket 2011 mounting adapter - that's available separately for a reasonable price - but it includes two PWM fans (4 pin motherboard controlled variable speed). I'm using the older model, but had to come up with my own PWM fans to replace the fixed-speed fans that came with it. The fans aren't silent when max'd out, but that may be inescapable with anything short of a fully-blown water cooling rig. (I doubt that a prefab unit like a Corsair HX100 would be quieter. There are other reasons to consider using one, although I'm not sure that cooling performance would head the list.)

The heatsink clears my RAM (Gskill F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH), which is a 16 GB (4 X 4GB) kit. The RAM is from the QVL (qualified vendor's list) for the Asus P9X79 Pro. I'd have to remove the heatsink to add or remove RAM, but that's not difficult.

As regards a DVD RW burner, my instinctive reply is "anything but LiteOn". I've had a couple of LiteOn drive die early deaths. My personal sample is small, so it may have been bad luck, but other makers (Asus, Samsung) sell drives almost as cheaply, so I go with them.

I didn't realise it was possible to get a noctua on to a 2011 socket! I am struggling to find one for sale though! Could you please point me in the rough direction a bit here! So you buy the cooler with a dual fan setup right? Then you have to buy an adapter plate? Thanks for the advice on the disk drives. Thank you for the help, it is much appreiciated!

Change default location for "Change Icon..." button?
In Windows 7, all the good icons are in %SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll, but we're still taken to the old SHELL32.dll when it comes time to change an icon. Is there a registry key or something that we can change to remedy this?
