I plan on a new build and have a clear accrlic case already.

I am going to order:

ASUS P6T Deluxe/OC Palm LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.co...x...p6t oc palm

Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819115202

Is this a good cooler?
ASUS Triton 81 92mm EBR CPU Cooler http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835101030

I already have a couple of other things from my old pc I intend On putting in with the new components:

SAPPHIRE 100243-1GTXSR Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814102815

three random sized sata drives 80gb, 120gb, 500gb all 7200 RPM

four cold cathodes, 5 led fans, and a LED blacklight

a MPLAY BLAST remote front panel display fan controler

and two IDE DVD-+RW combo drives I do not plan on running any other video cards.

I am trying to find for a cool looking power supply for my acrylic case and need to know if this will cut it????

APEVIA ICEBERG ATX-IB680W-BL 680W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready Power Supply With 3-Color LED Lights http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817148028

or do I need something more powerful. I plan on running my graphics card at 820 MHZ x 1200 MHZ and oc'ing the CPU to 3 Ghz or more

any feed back on this build or advice would be greatly appreciated

IMO that power supply would definitely cut it. What are you planning on running with this new build?

The reviews on the ASUS Triton 81 92mm EBR CPU Cooler http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835101030 say that this does not quite fit the AMD processor but they do not know about Intel. If you are planning on overclocking you want to ensure that it is completely covered and cooling properly. A review on the processor said he had heat issues even on stock settings with the stock cooler so you want to make sure you keep an eye on it before you take it to the limit no matter what cooling system you get.

Please consider this: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835207004
