We think alike. I too will get the 4930K and then Haswell E when it's released. Our only difference is the super high overclock you're shooting for. I'm happy puttering along with my present configuration.

Dead Things....you know...I dont even think I've tried it yet, will let you know, I'll try a run at 4.7 Ghz (my 24/7 setting) and 4.9 Ghz ;)

Slik.....really not sure if I'll jump on 4930K or not yet.....getting a good OC'able Chip is a crap shoot (imo), this chip seems like a "good one" so far, I'd be very disapointed if I dumped another $550 on the 4930K only to find it doesnt OC as good as this Chip.....so far the combination of this Chip and the 3 680 Classy's is proving to be an extremely potent system with absolutely no issues at all (looks for wood to knock on).......my upgrade path right now is leaning to putting my TJ09 to "rest" and moving all this gear into a Corsair 900D n get the H100i set up in push / pull ;)
I'm still in the queue for a step up to a couple of 780's, but at this point I'm leaning to cancel that.

Hey guys.....still in a "pickle" as to my best option for moving all of my HW out of my TJ09 into a great case, the requirements for my future new case:

1. Very good Air Cooling - particularly to GPU's
2. Ability to mount H100i up top in push/pull config (bearing in mind the 12v Mobo connectors on the RIVE are right at the top edge of the Board)

Presently I can only get 3 fans n my H100i in my TJ09 as the 12v connectors on the Mobo prevent the 4th fan.

So far, I've narrowed the choices down to:
1. Corsair 900D
2. Cosmos II

Any other suggestions welcomed ;)

900D is much more customizable and is much better suites for WC. It's more functional while the Cosmos does looks nicer IMO.

Most full-towers should be able to do that, shouldn't they?

And, considering the amount of money you've put into your rig, and your penchant for overclocking, shouldn't you probably start looking at building a custom loop?

^^^^^ Actually there are not a lot of Full size Towers (EATX) that cannot accommodate a Rad up top (H100i) with push / pull, its so friggin close with the EPS 12v Mobo Connectors on the RIVE being on the top edge.

Absolutely looking at WC Loop or Loops in the future.....I'm seriously considering the 900D just for that purpose at some point in the future, my old TJ09 simply doesnt have very good space.

I know that WC will be my next venture.....the wifes gonna love seeing the Purolator guy again ;)

If I didn't have my Thermaltake Level 10 [non GT], I would without question go for the 900D. That thing is HUGE and will accommodate anything you want to put into it. We seldom update or change cases as often as we do with other hardware i.e. cpu,video,coolers etc.so choosing the right case is important for more than just cooling. It's got to look great too. The 900D is the nicest looking case I've seen. Next to my Level 10 of course. Get the 900D rj. A beautiful and future proof case.

^^^^ Yeah the 900D is what I'm leaning towards......my Silverstone TJ09 has been around for almost 5yrs......wow!!!

I'll have to get my Son to help me get the thing in / out of my truck

I've got it in my "NCIX Cart" along with a bunch of Fans......just have to pull the pin
