this is a great guide i learned a great deal about my future build thanks to this, i only have one thing you didn't mention (i dont think) :

Phase Change Cooling - a module that uses rapid heating and re-cooling to change water to vapor and back, allowing for high levels of cooling, one ive seen online went to -50 C. the end is attached to the CPU first and foremost, allowing for extreme overclocking, however, the price range for these are VERY steep (im thinking of getting one thats $800 and something) and some models (maybe all) need custom cases to be fitted on, limiting your choice of fanciness.

a quick recap:

Advantages: super cooling performance, great for overclocking,

Disadvantages: Expensive, May Require custom case.

a good place to look at a Pahse Change cooler is under Phase Change.

Eagle I was wondering can you start up a computer or at least have power flow through one without a CPU? I heard if you don't have one your computer should make a beep but I don't even get any fans or lights on. So I think my mobo might be dead or I accidentally shocked it. But I hope you just need a CPU to actually get it to work.

I don't have one yet since I've been waiting for the price drop and I have everything else. Sucks that I didn't wait for the GPU price drops. I should have could have gotten a better card, but that isn't the point. Please answer ASAP.

I applaud you for going through all of this work Eaglerulez

This will be very helpful for me to build a computer for the sake of learning more about computers. Which also will inevitably help me when I go to college this fall to work towards my computer science major.
