I ninja deleted it because I wasn't looking at the right thing
Don't get that ASRock Extreme3 motherboard, I would get something a little nicer that can handle higher power loads rather than a motherboard with 5+1-phase power.
I have the 3820 and the 2133 G.Skill memory and I can vouch that both are awesome and won't disappoint. As for the motherboard. I personally have the P9X79 Deluxe which has all the bells and whistles of the ASUS X79 lineup for non-ROG boards, but a lot of people seem to be pretty happy with the Pro. If you're going to be building SB-E, REALLY don't recommend skimping on the motherboard, it's not a good plan. Either way I'm recommending what I have because it runs awesome.
ASUS P9X79 Deluxe
Edit: BTW, the deluxe has 16+2+2+2 power, and you can't tell me that those VRMs aren't beastly. Here, Cadaveca even reviewed the board some time ago.
He isn't getting the asrock....
Just noticed that, my stance is still firm. Unless you're going to be running LN2 I wouldn't get the ROG board, I would still consider the P9X79 Deluxe.
I kind of have to agree looks like a good board and even has 8 dimm slots instead of 4.
with 1155 being slated for replacement soon, 2011 has plenty of life and expansion for it. Plust Opportunity to Run Xeon Class CPUs
I'm inclined to agree with the comments about the motherboard above
I just built a system, got my parts from pc case gear aswell.
MSI Z77 Mpower
16GB 2133MHz ram
This thing is a total beast. Popped a H100 on it, and I'm cruising at 4.5GHz.
If you wana check it out more.
Ivy E is the only processor coming out for 2011. Everything changes after that. Cmon, it's Intel.
