Just to let you know, in case you don't already. With most skt939 (I think all?) you can ONLY mount the Infinity blowing South to North or North to South, not East to West (vice versa) as most people will have configured their airflow, a few people have learnt this the hard way. The only way around this is to mount the fan on the narrow side of the HS which has proved less effective then by mounting it on the broad side. Just something to consider when dropping that much money of a HS, i'd personally opt for the TT BT VX in your situation.

BTW, I will have my DFI + Opty 165 setup by the end of the week, but i'll be using the Tuniq Tower to cool it, i'll post benchies when i'm finished so you can compare.

But the DFI's socket is placed on the right side which would give me space to do so as the memory's on the left. It'll fit.

How are you so sure that you're getting a CCBWE?
