    +1 on 2011, 3930k FTW! Remember though that those CPUs do not include a cooler so you'll need to add that on :p

    For the best info on motherboards, you should look at cadaveca's reviews here of motherboards; he's done extensive testing on a slew of 2011 boards. My motherboard knowledge is no where near as in depth, but I do like Asus motherboards, the one you listed looks good with stability in clocking. :D

    Btw the way, which PSU did you get?

    See what I got in the name of PSU is Corsair HX850W Profe. Power Supply

    And Looking at H100 For cooling....

    brought Intel Core I7 3930k as CPU

    now the motherboard is left looking over net and also taking ur opinion

    What u say....

    Corsair is a good choice, currently running a 1000HX myself for almost 2 years running dual cards and overclocks everywhere, and its been delightful in all aspects.

    For motherboard, do you have any company preference or any color theme preference?

    That Rampage IV is pretty beast with tons of features, you could run 4 way gpus FTW, and since you're going all out with this build, why not top it off with that mobo (hopefully it matches your color theme).

    Preference is on Asus as I am a very old user of Asus but also looking at the reviews of some Asrock and Msi's too BTW I am more interested in the Asus Rampage IV as it's reviews are great...So I am thinking to stick With IT...

    BTW I did not understand the whole Color Theme Preference...Please Elaborate a Little ...:confused:

    Just saying if you wanted your hardware color to match: red ram with a black and red mobo, or blue ram with a blue mobo, or ... you get the idea. Some people care, some don't; I was just throwing that out there :D

    But yeah, Rampage IV is solid, reviews are spot on. It i could afford it, I'd do it too :cry:

    Asus boards are pretty mediocre now. Look at Asrock or Gigabyte for boards that are cheaper, but perform on par if not better. and Asrock and gigabyte boards are all black.

    That memory won't work with x79 motherboard. It will if you only want to run dual channel 4GB of memory, but you should get a quad channel kit. and more of it like 16GB for your uses.

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DD...

    If you get the Asus board. That memory would look good on it.

    water cooling? If its self contained unit the risk is very minimal compared to non contained water loops

    The H100 is a liquid cooling some guy told me this option on TPU so I got one but My last PC is a core 2 duo so I did'nt need that Cooling (as the box was ok) but Now I am building It first time with some cooling tool. So little nervous....

    You sure than why people asking to have a cooling stuff As much I know having the two like core i7 3930 and the gtx 680 4gb will generate enough heat....(Correct me If I am wrong)
