Does that case have good spots to mount a pump and a res? I am sure the rads will be fine. I will have an extensive plumbing system in their.

I am also looking for tips on the highest cfm fans I can get that are quiet (under 20 dba).. I may just use the ones it comes with or those big TFC Triebwerk fans if I can squish them in their.

If you're spending that much, why not wait for eVGA's dual socket Classified server-wannabe board?
Can't beat a 100% increase in physical and virtual cores. :P

I was thinking about a motherboard block but it's low on the priority.


The new classified board? What would the performance gains be? I doubt it would be 100% .. server-wannabe?

If I wait ... why not wait for i9? hahaa. We'll I will do some research as this next system is going to have to last me at least a year! ;)
