Info, just to make you aware, using a cooler other than the one supplied with a boxed retail CPU from both AMD and Intel (and/or over-clocking), will void your warranty.
I will be using an after-market Cpu fan
You still have not given the 700w PSU details. Given that you are trying to future proof and intend to overclock, may use 2 GPUs and 2 + monitors, you will need a quality 850w PSU with ,(two eight-pin auxiliary connectors per card(rather than the reference six-pin and eight-pin plug).
= 4 eight pin. 60 amps on the 12v rail.
My choice for a PSU would be one of these, please check that whichever supply you select, the cables are long enough for your case. >http://www.newegg.co...2^17-116-012-TS
Card measure 11.75” x 5.5” x 1.5”, make sure it will fit in the case.
The 7970 Lightning is the only card in our round-up that doesn’t expose the same display outputs as AMD's reference board. It’s certainly encouraging to see a manufacturer facilitate six display outputs from a dual-slot I/O panel. But our enthusiasm is seriously curbed by the realization that the two DVI outputs are single-link-only. Resolutions over 1920x1200 (such as 2560x1600) are not supported and require an active mini-DisplayPort-to-DVI adapter that’s not included. Similarly, 120 Hz refresh rates also require a DVI adapter. That means that anyone planning to take advantage of AMD's HD3D initiative are forced to pay more unless they take the DisplayPort route.
At the end of the day, three-way output utilizing DVI outputs at resolutions in excess of 1920x1200 and HD3D beyond that same resolution requires an active mini-DisplayPort-to-DVI adapter that costs extra. Source > http://www.tomshardw...iew,3186-4.html
http://psucalc.tk/#calcpsu More control with this one.
RAM, is compatible but I would seriously consider using sticks that are low profile, this would insure you have no problems with any CPU cooler.

This is the Psu i Picked from the list you suggested:
Will this still be compatable with everything else in the build?
And yeah thanks i will start looking at some low profile ram sticks!
Posted 30 August 2012 - 04:11 AM
so i dont need a mini-DisplayPort-to-DVI adapter as long as i dont use resolution past 1920x1200
Correct. If your monitor/s have Display Port, you can use up to 4 screens at any resolutions. The box contains
two six-to-eight-pin- power adapters, do not use. use the 6X2 Pin, = 8 pin PCI-E connectors directlyfrom the excellent PSU you have selected and yes, it is compatible with your system.
RAM. The listed one will perform the same as the Ripjaw, is good quality and, if important, comes in different colours. > http://www.newegg.co...9^20-231-559-TS
Download your selected Mobo user manual from the web site as it could be more up to date than the one included in the retail box, you can also familiarize yourself with it's features.
Do you require any, How To Build, tutorials?
Posted 30 August 2012 - 05:55 AM
Thanks for the Ram suggestion! that is the one im going to use.
and ok thanks about the advice i will make sure i check out the site and read through the manual there before Building.
And the only thing that i am not as confident about is the wiring so a Tutorial on that would save alot of time!
Thanks for all your help though, i am going away for a 5 days so i wont be able to check any posts till i come back!
Posted 30 August 2012 - 07:01 AM
When you read the GPU manual, you will see the card requires 2 separate PCI-E cables from the PSU, each ends in a 6x2 Pin plug.
ok thanks i will use the 6x2 pin.
Tutorials, thanks to Troy and Artellos, > http://www.geekstogo...r-own-computer/
If you are not sure about any steps when building, post back and ask.
2 items I recommend you add to your list.
An anti static whist strap like this, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16899261005
An internal mini system speaker, this will give beep codes during the system start up, POST. indicating everything is OK, or you have a problem, like this > http://www.cwc-group.com/casp.html

How is the build progressing? Up to installing the OS yet? An update on the Forum would be appreciated. You have had 307 views on your Topic, so following through to a conclusion helps everyone that reads it.
Posted 12 September 2012 - 12:28 PM
And thanks for reccomending the anti-static wristband:
This build was planned in advance unlike the other build that i done, i will start this build in about 2 months i just wanted to get everything setup in advance i will come back to the site and update you when i start building and how the build goes ect, Once again thanks for all your help i will definatly reccomend this site to anyone i know who needs computer help!
Posted 12 September 2012 - 02:58 PM
Thank you for the update. We look forward to hearing results.
If you need any fore help before you start the build, "Just whistle"

Sorry to hear you are having problems.
It will help us first if you list every part, brand/model, so we know what you have changed from the original.

The Debug stop error 79 is CSM initialization. The most likely cause being bad/incompatible RAM or a defective memory slot on the Mobo.
You will not hear any beep codes from external speakers. Beep codes are generated from the BIOS through a small internal system speaker like this one, > http://www.cwc-group.com/casp.html installed on a header on the Mobo, see 2-14 in the Mobo manual, JFP2 header, System Speaker.
i have plugged speakers in i dont hear a beep i mades sure the HD audio cable was plugged in
The front header USB ports may not be initialized until later in the POST sequence. Always the best option at first set up is to use a PS/2 keyboard and mouse.
the front USB ports dont seem to work as i have a razer taipan which works by USB port and it doesnt seem to work
Please make sure to turn of the power when working on the computer and take anti static measures. When installing anything to the Mobo, make sure things are the right way round, same goes for + and - symbols on leads and plugs.
Go to 2-18 Mobo manual, Clear CMOS Jumper: JBAT1. Please read carefully and follow instruction to clear the CMOS. Keep the jumper on Clear Data for about 30 seconds and then place it on Keep Data. you have finished.
>Remove the wireless card, if you have installed it.
>Remove the plugs from the front header USB2 And USB3 headers.
Please recheck the Front Panel Connectors: JFP1, Mobo manual 2-14
>Unplug the keyboard from the front USB. If you have a PS/2 keyboard, plug it into the back of the case, Mobo manual 2-10. If not available you can try the Razor in the USB 2 OR USB 3, Do not use the USB/eSATA combo port.
>Remove both sticks of RAM.
>Recheck the following, making sure they are properly seated. 2 connections to the Mobo, CPU fan plug to CPU system fan header on the Mobo. If you have installed the original selected video card, it requires 2 PCI-e connectors. You have the compatible connection from the video outlet socket to the monitor.
>Install one stick of ram in slot 1, making sure it is seated correctly and the end locking tabs have engaged.
> Turn on the power, switch on the monitor, on the Mobo, press the power on button, watch for lights on the keyboard, confirm the fans are spinning.
Do you get any signal on the monitor? what code is on the Debug LED? If you have managed to fit a system speaker, any beeps?
