That memory runs at a higher voltage than normal memory (1.65 volts versus 1.5 volts). The Corsair memory runs at the standard voltage which is a better option in my opinion.

For most people 120GB is not enough space for a boot drive. If a larger SSD isn't in the budget I'd pass on the SSD this time.

Make sure the motherboard and case can accommodate a cooler that big. It also makes working on a machine a pain in the ass because it hangs over everything else, for example upgrading the memory down the road might require the heatsink to be removed for the install.

thx! the corsaire is also the one i like better.
about the cooler i checked it and it fits with the asus p9x79pro/deluxe and mid tower case. i am aware of the "hang over" problem, thx...what about the other stuff do you have any recommendations? motherboard - sabertooth i cancelled now it is left to decide whether to take the asus pro or the deluxe. i dont really care about the additonal features in deluxe but more about the power and heating distribution that is differet between the two them. the phases are different - according to what i've heard.
also what about the monitors? of course as a start and later i'll upgrade.

thx.

You'll likely have a hard time fitting the Noctua over those Vengeance ram sticks. I'd look for heatsink-less ram since those heatsinks are pretty much worthless anyway...

ok, so i checked it out, and noctua doesnot support the corsair vengeance cards (ram compatible wise) - as you wrote, only pro-series, low profile, xms3 and maybe one more module. there is the 32gb 8*4 corsair cards whice are the pro series and compatible for the noctua d-14 but i am not planning on buying 32gb right now. so, i think i will buy the kingston hyperx genesis 16gb ddr3 4*4 - the second choice i had whice is compatible for the noctua d-14. what do you say about that module/firm? and also what about the motherboards? pro or deluxe?

thx.

G.Skill Ares are better bang for buck and cool better than any comparable Corsair offer.

As for the Noctua, can I ask why spend close to 100 bucks for air cooling?

You can get a much more practical H50 for less money and have equivalent or better and more silent cooling in the process, not to mention it won't try to pry your mobo apart with its weight, or have that retarded footprint the Noctua is famous for.
It's bound (the Noctua) to be one of the most over-popular coolers out there at this point, it's beyond me how people think it's acceptable to have a small crate hanging off their mobo when closed circuit, no maintenance liquid is so accessible these days.
