    That's crazy for what is ultimately a pretty inexpensive rig.

    So true considering I bought these 7970 ref cards secondhand for $200 each, one of them with an EK waterblock. Sold both my 680's as I did not like the way you OC them and both my SR-2 rigs. The SR-2 cost $3-4000 and is out performed by a $1300 rig tenfold.

    Although in like a month and a half then the SR-2 will once again reign supreme

    I was googling around and the RIVE does fit indeed!

    Right, now that you link that, I remember seeing that exact picture when I was considering the XB....

    Yes, this is an awesome case, much more versatile than I thought, now I'm debating if I should move my 3930K along two of my 680s to it once Haswell comes out, and get the Maximum VI Extreme and use my Titans along with it in my existing HAF-X case as my main rig, what do you think?

    Coming from a fellow 3930k owner, I can't imagine why you'd upgrade. With quad-channel RAM and a CPU that will run all 6C/12T at 4.5GHz with ease, the only reason I can think to upgrade is boredom. With a setup like yours, upgrading really strikes me as peculiar at best...

    I know what you mean, thing is, I was already decided on upgrading to the next intel architecture to see what new features it'll bring to the table.

    My current processor has hit a hard ceiling in terms of OCing potential, I can't OC it past 5GHz unless I go over 1.5v, and I don't want to fry it, I am interested in exploring Haswell's OCing limits.

    I dunno if IB-E will be a good upgrade path, if intel went directly to Haswell-E for LGA2011 then it would make things really exciting for the X79 platform, alas, we both know that probably won't happen.

    Being almost certain that Haswell is going to be faster for games makes me think if I should pair this build to my titans to further improve their performance, or just use it as another HTPC as I had already told my father I was going to give him my venerable 9550 rig :)

    Now that is a cool looking tech bench :rockout: I like how you can lay it down or stand it up like a tower. Who manufacturers this one again?
