Ugh. I almost picked up some parts for an x79 system too. Somehow I just can't let this 'lousy' 970 go!

^^^ Not sure if my 980X was just a case of a poor IMC and perhaps this 3930K is just a decent Chip....glad I made the plunge though ;)

Yes Friendly Gamer, I have decided to cancel my step up to the 780's.....biggest reason is the fact that these 680 Classy's run so cool, in fact I can sandwich 3 of these Cards together and still only see a Max Temp of 67c on the top Card when banging along thru Metro or Crysis 3.....and the performance running Tri Sli is awesome. I'll hang onto these Cards until the release of Maxwell next year ;)
As for the 900D, its still sitting in my "NCIX Cart" along with a bunch of fans....also been eyeing up the Swiftech 320 AIO Cooler ;)
