Yeah I have been looking into Ivy and have read that it will be for both socket type 1155 and 2011. Kinda like i7 with 1156 and 1366.

I am not sure if it is true but I doubt they would release 2011 with only a couple compatible processors.

He would have to wait for IB-E not IB to match the performance of his SB-E 3930K. That is going to be a while....

I doubt it as well, but I have a gut feeling that LGA 2011 will be the LGA 1366 of 2012.

Yeah but if all else fails I would only have to upgrade the mobo and processor. PCIe 3.0 is compatible with 2.0 slots with minimal performance loss. biggrin.gif

Yeah that's what I've been doing for 4 years now; saving up money and planning a build. But everytime I reach the wallet full, something new comes out on the market.
I believe this build will be solid for years to come since 2011 socket just came out with support of PCIe 3.0 and quad channel controller

dont get Corsair obsidian 650d
it has one of those dumb usb3 cables that go around the motherboard tray and then to the back to plug into a real usb3 port get Corsair Carbide 500r
maybe not as smooth but it at least has 2 usb3
but then rampage 4 extreme has 4 usb3 ports at back so its ur choice

i chose the 650d because I love the glass window. If the 500r had a window display I would reconsider. And i can always do a little bit of modding to the case to change them 2.0's to 3's biggrin.gif

First things first, h100 is 103 dollars on amazon and 99.99 on tiger direct, 650d is $169.98 on amazon as well as free shipping which is 20 bucks on newegg even with shoprunner so you save around 40 dollars total. I know amazon to have a very good return policy that also provides free shipping to and back if something is defective etc. This is considering that theres not a really good combo on newegg. Second thing, google for shoprunner free for a year, when i found a signup for it, i didn't even have to input credit card details or anything and i made sure to turn off recurring membership and any email offers etc in the settings.

As for the build i would go with a bigger ssd and a completely modular power supply instead (modular power supply is just a preference but I absolutely like them better).
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233191 is yours except twice the size and only 149.99 after rebate.
Something like the AX850 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139015&Tpk=ax850) or even the Seasonic Platinum 860W (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151111) and with the money saved on shipping and going to amazon for the 650d and h100 it still stays under 2400. In fact it goes down to around 2320 and little or non-existent shipping costs. So ya. Hopefully i helped a bit.
.
This build is similar to a build i'm doing soon, hope to see you in the Rampage Extreme Mobo club tongue.gif.

Thank you. I will take the gold 850W into consideration because I have not noticed it and would like to stay true to this Corsair build smile.gif
As for choosing between the service of Amazon and NewEgg.. It depends if Amazon would charge me taxes because NewEgg does not for some reason. And taxing something this expensive would be devastating to leftover petty cash. But I will look around for the shipping costs and that Shop Runner.

Thank you for the advice. biggrin.gif I'm going to resume my research for the cheapest and most reliable source

i'd get higher bandwidth RAM..because..i do..and..sandy bridge runs 2133 flawlessly.. I can vouch for that..
not 100% positive about 2011..but pretty sure it's VERY similar architecture
