    im upgrading my cpu my mobo my ram and my heatsink (new plan) this is a gaming pc that also does video recording streaming/encoding etc. i will oc on air to my best capablities. im looking for an sli/crossfire board with good overclocking abilities.

    SB 3820

    mobo (i need some advice here)
    i can purchase ASUS P9X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 A... open box with factory warranty for about $200 with the poor reviews is it worth it or do i spend a little extra on something better??

    ram since i keep hearing over and over ram speed and timings dont matter too much i am looking at just some budget 4 chan 16gb ram such as G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3...

    thanks and please dont lock this

    Awesome board. Friendly advice, try not to go open box if you can. Just having the fresh serial no. With Asus is worth the premium. Ram looks fine. As far as a cooler goes, try for a noctua dh14.

    Ixnay on my ram comment, go the little extra
