      I just wanted to run this build by the board one more time before I begin to purchase. Any and all advice and suggestions are welcomed.


      A couple things to consider. I know some consider the Rampage Extreme to be overkill, but I'm going with it anyways for a variety of reasons. I know the Cosmos II is very big. Should I have any problem with the cable length of this power supply? And lastly, for some reasons asus doesn't have the QVL for memory on the Rampage IV Extreme listed on the website. Is there somewhere I can find this to verify the memory is approved? Should I seriously consider faster memory for OC'ing? I'm gonna OC, but not in an extreme fashion.


      Ok, here are the specs again. Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions!

          Nice build!


          Regarding qualified memory, I believe that most reputable vendors show what memory sticks that they support for particular motherboards. I've had good luck with G. Skill memory that is "recommended" on their site, so if they say those sticks are OK for the memory density that you are using them at, you should be good to go even without Asus's blessing.


          Regarding cable lengths, you may need some extenders. The Cosmos is large as you say.


          Good luck - the real fun is only beginning!
