    Any problems with this set up?

      Hi there just wanted to make sure I am not doing anything wrong with my new build (about to buy next week) :


      i7 3930k hex core

      asus p9x79 pro

      nzxt phantom 820 case (because I like the design )

      Asus GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II

      OCZ ZX SERIES 1250w PSU

      Patriot Viper "Black Mamba" Generation 3 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Quad Channel Kit (PV332G160C9QK)  x2 or 1866 or 2133mhz possibly ripjawz (not much choice here in uk have to go with what's there on the day) :S

      noctua nh-d14

      2x samsung 840 pro's (OS and cache disks) on the sata 3 intel connections

      4x Seagate Constellation ES ST1000NM0011 Internal Hard Drive - 1 TB also on the intel in raid 10 but the sata 2 connections until later on when I get a controller (hopefully this will be ok for 1080p work for now)

      Blu ray burner - not chosen yet.

      Windows 8 64 bit pro



      One thing I noticed about the vipers was they look like they are the same RAM just with different ratings do you think this is correct? See here: http://www.patriotmemory.com/product/specs/PV332G213C1QK.pdf  it says: the base timings and frequency are exactly the 1600mhz 9-9-9-24 of the 1600mhz model - leading me to think they are the same?
