Yes i have posted here before but since ive made a fairly decent change to everything and well you guys blew me away with how good you were at helping before ive come back
now my question is will the RAM work its webpage says its compatible with the motherboard im using but then it also says the RAM is 1.65 volts and the motherboard has 4 1.5 volt slots and in a bit of a pre emptive move ive already ordered the RAM also will there be enough power later on to get 2 gtx 580s with an 850 watt powersupply which yet again ive already ordered and if not then will with only one GPU there be enough power for water cooling? So just to recap ive already ordered the RAM dvd drive and powersupply.

That RAM should be compatiable, the 850W should be able to power up 2 580. I am powering up 2 6950 on a 750W power supply.

For SSD caching does the ssd need to have the OS on it?

I know ssd caching is supposed to make a normal hard drive load at ssd speeds but does it make the ssd a zombie drive?

Are you trying to say, the SSD as the main hard drive with the OS and the normal hard drive as a secondary storage drive?

From what ive been told the way SSD caching works is that it uses the SSD as a kind of RAM to load everything from a cheaper and larger normal hard drive at SSD speeds im just wondering if it needs the OS and well im pretty sure it does

Ive heard the 600 series is coming out in novemeber would it make more sense to get a 580 when they come out at a low price or get a 600?

I suppose if you can't wait till that time then you should get the 580 but if you can wait till they release the new 600 series then you would get that which is probably gonna be more powerful.

Ive noticed the gtx 580 nvidia doesnt come with any built in fans would it be wise to get some before assembling as ive heard graphics cards run very hot

Most graphics card has fan, it's needed to cool down the chip.
