Ok, so I wanted to update this thread, as there has been another change. Prices for the x79 Mobos and 4930k have not dropped. In H2 2014, Intel is due to release the Haswell-E chips and are eliminating the 4-core CPUs and releasing instead a 6-core and 8-core CPU. This will coincide with the new chipset, codenamed x99. Due to this, and the fact that moving to a 6-core right now would yield me small benefits in gaming, I am holding off on the mobo/cpu upgrade and focusing instead on the GPUs, water blocks, and sleeving.
