Here are the CPU's from Best Buy I can get a price match for just about anywhere so better deal and ~$200 at Best Buy = no brainer.

Any reason the more expensive Raystorm or just thinking I should shoot for top of the line?

If you're doing video editing then get the i7 and the UD3H. I think I linked the UD3H in my first post. I thought since you were asking again you didn't like it. Haha

If you want a lot more video editing then go the 4930K. You will have to wait on the cooling though.

You this one and this one (for Z87)?

What about for LGA 2011?

 

What kind of kit should I get watercooling wise, I saw JLM said the $240 kit...

Yes, I would go for the 2nd one. The Z87X-UD3H. http://www.overclock.net/t/1415999/the-gigabyte-z87x-ud3h-full-review-everything-you-need-to-know-about-the-z87x-ud3h

For LGA 2011, this is one of the cheapest one.

What case do you have?

I have a Coolermaster Storm Trooper. Also I was thinking LGA 2011 was only released because Ivy Bridge -E came out, looks like I remembered incorrectly so they have Sandy chips available too... though a lot of the boards look a bit dated and it's bothering me for some reason (I guess a fair number of them have been out since Sandy Bridge -E was released?).

Yes, that's correct. X99 Platform will be coming out, but not until the end of this year I think. I really think the Z87 is your best option. Get the i7-4770K and a ~$150 motherboard. This one is pretty nice too. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157371 At the end of the day those boards won't make the difference it will be your chip and cooling.

The XSPC I linked for you has the AX radtators will do pretty well, and are thin enough you shouldn't have any clearance issues. If you want to piece a kit together you can, but will be much more expensive. If you want to modify your case you can fit a 360mm up at the top I think. I'm not too familiar with that case. A quick search show that a 240mm will work fine. I'm not sure about mounting one in the front. Maybe some people with these case can help you with that.

So you wouldn't recommend spending extra for the integrated audio and such, or for instance the ability to cool the mosfets with the watercooler (though they probably won't need it)?

 

So far the list of boards I'm hearing include. The ASUS Maximus VI Hero Z87, the Gigabyte UD3H Z87, and the Gigabyte D3H Z87. I've also gotten a few recommendations elsewhere for the Gigabyte G1 Sniper Z87.

I haven't seen mention of the higher end boards, anywhere. So I guess they're either way overpriced or don't help/do as much as they used to (feature and performance wise)?

I'm talking about for instance the Sabertooth Z87,or the Maximus VI Formula since that's what I know best high end board wise.

 

As for the case and rads I can ask more in detail in the WC forum I suppose.

No, you do not need to watercool the MOSFETS. Yeah, I would probably ask here.

There is no real need for higher end boards, unless it is something you want.

Where does the Sniper I linked earlier rank in things? Or should I maybe move this to the motherboard subforum? I think I've ruled out LGA 2011 mainly because they look a bit outdated like they've been the same since well... 2011 when Sandy Bridge -E came out...

It's a nice board, if you need the audio, etc.. It has a lot of bells and whistles. It won't overclock any better than the other ones in my opinion. It will be your chip that will be the limiting factor, not the board.

I'd probably have to have a pretty good loop if I were to go with an LGA 2011 and the 4930k yeah?
