From what I'm hearing, OP mainly wants to game and maybe attempt some basic overclocking. The extra money that he would spend on the R4BE could be better spent elsewhere, like Cooling or a better video card, not little gimmicks he/she is only going to use once maybe twice.

However, it would help if OP went a little more in depth as to what he wants. I.E. What Chip, Cooling, what Video Card(s) etc.

Corsair 900d
GD45 or RIVEB(?)
3x EVGA SuperClocked 2774-KR GTX770 or 3x MSI R9 280x (?)
Corsair AX1200i
Intel i7-4820K(?)
Samsung 840 Pro256
G SKILL Ripjaws Z 2400 (8x 4GB)

EK Water cooling

Is more or less the setup im looking at right now

The ROG boards have more settings for overclocking then anyone in the world, im sure the ASUS employee's don't even understand.

EDIT: im a gamer that does benchmarking sometimes, but mostly plays games and thats the main reason i didn't go all out and get the RIVE or the Black edition, it seemed like to much for me. I did look into the MSI and gigabyte models, but i got scared off when i read some reviews that said they didn't overclock well, and i had bought a "binned" 3930k that was suppost to overclock great.

Good information, Thanks.

Unless you already have them, I might suggest going dual 290x or dual 780.

Also, my suggestion of the MSI Board still stands
