Hiya guys! I spent well over a few weeks getting opinions and input for a new rig. I have, HOPEFULLY, got everything settled so I can start purchasing parts as early as tomorrow.

Note: I was gonna go for the Noctua D15, but those fans are disgustingly not the color I wanted, and so swapped with the CRYORIG. My only concern is if this monstrosity of a cooler is going to block the RAM I'm getting.

Thanks for any input!

I have 2 1080p monitors that I have side-by-side with one having a game on borderless window and the other doing tasks like Photoshop/browsing/mild rendering.
