Are you sure about this? I have great onboard Air, and I think that my Ultra 120 Extreme may just work no?

I think you need to re evaluate your choices in a cooler before you harp on a mobo design.
Not sure I agree with this statement, people like air for the need of not having to check water loops, etc. There is nothing wrong with Air. My i7-930 O/C's to 4.3/4,4ghz.

I am in the same boat here, I got the RIVE and the Zxr 32GB of ram. The egg says they will give store credit, so I am considering sending all three back unopened wait for the Black to be released, utilize it's onboard sound, smack in my 3 titans grab a 4930K and call it a day. Thoughts? Also, confused about 8 dimm optimization, if we have 4 dimms 8x4GB of G.Skill ram should have we gone for 8?http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231615
