    planning to tri sli or quad sli? if not, no point in getting the extreme. if only 2 gpu's, then formula is best bet or maximus hero. if planning to have 2 gpu's 1kw psu is a waste. good quality 850 psu is more than enough..... oh between the two cases, id take the green predator. looks better. but personally, if for myself, none. it looks like a kiddie case unless you plan to put a lot 8f bling bling

    the only review for the Corsair RM1000 is this one

    http://www.chiphell.com/article-9726-2.html
    - chinese

    using google translate

    http://translate.google.com/transla.../www.chiphell.com/article-9726-2.html&act=url

    it doesnt look that bad.

    But can you get Seasonic instead?

    Even if you OC them 850W is more than sufficient but ok I understand you want a peaceful mind

    Yes you can make cables green.

    If you go green theme, the case and motherboard you wanted doesnt match.

    Asus has a red and black theme
    The case you mentioned has blueish color

    as for cables, you can buy sleeving kits from here

    http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l1/g2/Cables.html?id=PvqYtk67

    although it sounds like you wanted to do sleeving yourself but you can just buy extensions which are already sleeved


    as for motherboard, if you only plan in running 2 GPU's, the extreme motherboard is useless IMHO.

    Id recommend Gigabyte Z87 m5 or G1 Sniper Z5S. to match the green theme

    Oh the RAM you wanted is pretty useless. I know more speed but its not worth the price IMHO

    good luck on your build.

    I have the same ram just the 2400 kit (a notch below), and it's been great, no issues at all. That's running it with a 4770k too.

    It looks like the Raidmax case has decent routing options and rubber grommets for cable management, so I don't think that would be an issue.

    oh shoot I apologized i mis interpret.

    Like manofthem mention, cable management with that case should be easy and you can make it neat.

    from the looks, it looks like full tower case if not ultra tower case.

    G.Skill has a lifetime warranty and that is what I like.

    I wanted to buy it a month ago but then the 2400kit like manofthem has went up significantly. so next time.
    m343 and manofthem say thanks.

    raidmax has a space for your H100i rad

    [​IMG]

    so yeah raidmax.

    oh that case also has 7 HDD bays so enough space for you HDD.

    the green X-9 is wider although i dont know if it has space for the H100i rad on top

    but it looks like it has

    [​IMG]

    although i cannot be certain cause the review i can see from the bottom is not clickable so I cannot really see.
