    I need advice/confirmation that my build will be successful.
    Overclocking isnt my priority, but a nice to have to tweak when I have time.
    I will most-likely be running Windows 8 for developers (or 7 if theres too much software problems).

    My main questions about this build:
    Will the heatsink fit with the motherboard and tower chosen?
    Selected RAM will fit with the selected heatsink?
    Did I pick something that isnt reliable?
    Anything to change or suggest?

    Note: Unfortunately I can only use Newegg.ca

    You don't seem to be missing anything, and the Heatsink should fit fine inside that case! Everything else seems to match up, so I think you're good to go!

    looks good to me. By the way, I used to own a crosshair iv formula, and it was thumbs up. Good options and all that.
    Not sure if you care or not, but keep your eyes peeled for a higher frequency phenom ii x6, they are kind of rare i think hence pricier, but maybe someone you know will sell one down the road.
