Overclocking is fairly easy. My 3930k get to 4.8 very easily.There is tons of information on here. im not trying to discourage you from the case; It designed around fitting radiators. Awesome case choice though I am a huge fan of corsair cases.

i7 3970x (great chip) I think that if you are really going for looks I would bank the extra 600$ and invest that into a nice watercooling loop for yourself. Then overclock your i7 3930k which will clock far beyond the i7 3970x at stock. For the same price you have a faster (in my opinion) cooler looking pc and you will utilize corsairs flagship watercooling case.

I dread doing another watercooled rig. The H100i is sooo much easier wink.gif
