My new system is set up and ready to go! I've done all my tests and it seems happy. Can't wait to give it a workout IRL. Thanks to all who took the time to help with advice and pointers.

Nice solid build

Did you test it to shake out any possible issues?

Here is a list I put together.

Take plenty of pictures before during & after the unboxing in case there is damage.

Remove all packing, verify all components are seated & plugged in.

Connect monitor, keyboard, mouse and internet only.

Fire it up, finish OS install, GPU drivers & MOBO drivers. Register the OS.

Download Speed Fan or HWI monitor and run during all tests to monitor temps. 
All the programs listed are free, make sure you download directly from their site
or at someplace like Major Geeks.

Download and create a bootable flash drive or CD of Memtest. Run it to verify your RAM has no errors. 
A bad sector or 2 can cause all sorts of weird issues. If it passes move on. If not find the bad stick 
and temporarily remove it.

Download and run Intel Burn In on standard, for a general stress test.

Download and run Furmark to stress the GPU.

If all is well update the OS and drivers.

Install your most used programs. 

Now I suggest "cloning" your HD and re-clone every few months or so. Then just disconnect the clone drive.
I have found out the hard way what you need to go through if a C drive fails and the multiple days
it takes to get set up again. If something does happen in minutes your back up and running
with a minimal amount of data to get back.

If you decide not to clone, at least make a set of recovery disks or back up your drive.

Finish installing printers, etc.

Your ready to go.

Thanks for the list GAN1957!

I downloaded and ran all of the programs you suggested. There were a couple of things I had difficulty reconciling:

  • There was something that showed up in Speedfan 4.52 which looked problematic. The category called AUXTIN1 was registering at 106C immediately after starting. A quick search revealed that this was a common finding, and probably an unused sensor (although I don't know enough about the test to know for sure).
  • I had trouble finding something called Intel Burn In. I ended up downloading and running Intel Extreme Tuning Utility from Intel's site. Everything was stable.
Thanks again!
