I currently have an FX-8120 system with 16GB ram and 128gb ssd and wish to increase my compile times by alot as I built this system in 2011. Here's a new system I put together http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/cnnx/saved/TpRCmG

Could you give me your opinions if I would see a big increase in speed? i chose the 6 core haswell because it would give me 12 threads under linux when compiling.

8x2GB is better than 4x4GB.

You didn't remove the 4x4GB haha. If noise is that important to you sure go ahead with that power supply, it's super overkill though. The H100i can get up to 37db, it's not as quiet as you might think. Check out the Noctua DH-15.

ok i updated it.. i will look at youtube videos for the sound level of the water cooler, its a really nice and compact cooler thats why i want it, i dont like the big metal fans and heatsinks
