-I have this question posted on multiple forums so bare with me here as my replies will be much slower.
-AS FOR THE PEOPLE recommending me WC I honestly feel intimidated by it. I chose an air cooling case but I still am not sure to choose a liquid cooling enabled one since I am not positive if I go WC in the future.
-I will order from mostly canadian sites but will order from other places if necessary. The preferred retailer list I posted isn't that vital.

my newegg wishlist
the list is very slow on updating publicly so it would need time and sometimes items i have already deleted appear there
Really looking for some of the top and latest support with longevity, durability and silence
the rig would be placed in the basement which is usually around 20C, during the humid summer it should be closer to 30C room temp but we almost always AC then. the only thing about the basement i am worried about is if airflow wouldn't be good enough for the rig
would a heatsink fan suffice for now? if i ever choose to SLI would liquid cooling be needed then?
[updated list please check it out]
