    It may not all fit together. Even if it does, it'll likely be very tight. I think it might be best to confirm all the parts are intercompatible before ordering them - I couldn't find any photos online which showed the NH-D15 mounted on a Maximus VII Hero. Some users (with other mobos but tall RAM heatspreaders) have modded their NH-D15s by hacksawing a few fins off the bottom.
    Hey thanks for tthe update but i think your wrong
    the Noctua might be HUGE but the HyperX savage's are LowProfile memorys and they should fit perfectly fine . even if they not i can always raise the Noctua fans abit just to fit everything...

    Here the NHD-15 is mounted on the maximus vii impact which is a smaller board than the maximus vii hero.

    I think all of nircc's components will fit just fine.
    i also think all components will work fine

    I have bioshock 1and 2 (don't have bioshock infinite) and I have far cry 3 and 4. The bioshick games are pretty good, the big daddy's are hard to kill and ammo is kinda scarce, you can hack vending machines and buy ammo and upgrades. haha Far cry 3 and 4 are excellent games !

    to be honest i dont think i will play them all much
    the whole new rig / monitor idea is based around the fact that i want the best experience for the witcher 3...
    im going to spend most of my time on the witcher 3 and by the time i done with it i'll probably start B:AK , and after that FALLOUT 4

    Well the best possible experience would be to add another 980 ti for SLI and then you would need a higher wattage power supply.

    I dig the games you play !

    im having issues with the decision which 980ti to get...

    i have two options
    EVGA SC or Gigabyte refernce

    the are cons and pros to both

    EVGA pros-
    Cheaper price .
    Better looking card
    OC already
    Backplate and FANS
    EVGA Step up program

    Evga Cons-
    ill order it from amazong and its out of stock - so need to wait 1-2months
    paying for that card means i get my money taken once and not by payments which make it harder for me to live
    incase i need to use warranty its going be abit of an issue because i have to ship it out of the country.



    Gigabyte refernce pros-
    its still a 980 ti
    pretty cheap and i can get it as its already in stock in my country
    i can pay whenever i want because its from a friend which leads to easier payments for me.
    and incase i need warranty its still in my country so it should be less annoying.

    Gigabyte refernce CONS-
    Looks ugly
    no OC
    1 fan which means more heat?



    thats it basicly.

    It's up to you, if you want it now get the Gigabyte card and you can overclock it yourself, the fact that it's not overclocked isn't a big deal.

    EVGA's step program is good for 90 days but since the 980ti was just released there won't be another gpu to step up to in 90 days so that is irrelevant.

    The Gigabyte card has the reference cooler which means it will exhaust the heat out of your case, and seeing how you're going with the noctua that might be a good idea. The evga card will have better temps but doesn't exhaust the heat out of the case.

    With your build I would chose the gigabyte card.

    thanks again
    i think i'm messing with the build too much...and i should just get the 980ti gigabyte.
    i might not need to OC it at all it should be damm good even without OC
    i will place my order tomrrow and just hope everything will be fine so all i will have to do is wait the parts to arrive.

    Just one thing before ordering if you think you will ever go SLI in the future you could get a 1000w psu.

    i might go SLI in the far future but are you sure 1000w is a must?
    i was sure 850w strong enough and thats why i choosed that specific psu.

    You'd probably be ok with an 850w psu but if you are going to do any overclocking then a 1000w would be a better choice. It's always good to give your psu some headroom. The more headroom you give it, it won't have to work as hard therefore it will run cooler and quieter and last longer.

    The 980ti can draw up to 250 watts so 500w for two, another say 200 watts for the rest of the system is 700w. Now if you overclock your cpu that will require additional wattage and it will be cutting it too close for an 850w unit.

    You want to give your psu about 30% headroom so if your system is drawing 700w + overclocking, a 1000w psu would be what you want.

    The evga supernova psu's are good quality psu's and come with a 10 year warranty.

    I'm using the pc power and cooling turbo cool 1200w for three gtx 680's.
