I did... you register it online and you get the extended / lifetime warranty through ultra - i have a refurb ultra 1000 in my wife's pc. same deal

I'd still reconsider... The model itself is 5-6 years old, especially since it's refurb. If it's anything I've learned with fancy parts; always
buy the most expensive psu thumb.gif

Um the reference gtx 680 run very hot.

I have 2 more 6950's for sale / trade, but I think I'm trading Chenouu for a 7970 for my wife's PC

Make sure to post pictures when you get it all done.

I think you would have been better off piecing this together more slowly for a quality overall build instead of one with good components with nothing supporting them.

If you are only going to OC to 4.2 you can do that on air very easily with a lower-end air cooler.

On that same note, if you aren't going to overclock to 4.5 and above, Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge would have been better for you. Due to the way that the 6 core intel chips run, it will actually be slower for gaming than sandy/ivy quads due to to the bus topology (more stops at more cores between cycles)

Also, LGA2011 runs very hot, and you will want some sort of airflow around the VRMs. Mount a fan or two aimed at the area, especially if you're going with an H80 on the chip itself.. No airflow around the VRMs at all is bad news.

I haven't used a 680 myself, but I know they do run relatively hot as shown above:

http://www.anandtech.com/show/5699/nvidia-geforce-gtx-680-review/19

Stacking them together in tri-sli is going to make it even worse. Be careful, and remember you're on reference and aren't going to have aftermarket cooling.

If I were in your shoes I would have saved the 1000ish on the chip/mobo and went for something that suits your needs better (faster, cheaper, etc)

PSU is probably a weak link in the build as discussed before... Careful with that thing, hope it works out for you.

Grats on the new stuff.

I was previously running a TRI Crossfire setup with my 6950 unlocked 2 6970's with my 2600k. @ 4.5ghz they were being slightly bottlenecked.. My friend has the 3930k and I seen him run his 6950 setup (same as mine) with the 3930k at stock and it was pulling more GPU usage than mine was. I think that was a pretty obvious answer.... the 3930k 6cores are beasts.... It actually benches better than all of the SB chips... So I don't see how you can say it will hinder my gaming capabilities(no offense). it's the best available right now.. And honestly I think the IVY series are going to be the new moderate tier of intel... like SB was... And the temp situation is not necessarily true. The 2011 cpu's run very hot compared to 1155. My job requires me to use a lot of rendering software as well... One of the main reasons I wanted a 6 core processor

I hope you are using at the least one 120hz good monitor... Don't tell me you're still rolling on lagy 60hz with vsync?
