Hi, I finally got all the necessary parts for my upgrade and installed everything yesterday. Here's the build : Thermaltake VA8003BWS case XFX 1000W PRO1000W power supply ASRock FATAL1TY X79 Professional motherboard i7-3930K CPU Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 CPU cooler 2x8GB GSKILL F3-1600C7D-16GTX R ram Galaxy GeForce GTX 680 GC video card Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 tv tuner 4 port sata card harddrives in quiet pc enclosures hardrives in a Supermicro CSE-M35T-1B Black 5 bay Hot-Swapable SATA HDD Enclosure The ASRock FATAL1TY X79 Professional motherboard and the Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 CPU cooler are a bad match. The CPU socket is too low or the CPU cooler is too large. The first video card slot is unusable. The video card is on the second slot in this picture but I ended up placing it in the third one in the end to make the x1 slot usable. The Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 CPU cooler and my Thermaltake VA8003BWS case are a very tight fit. The little metal parts protruding from the cooler are actually inside the plastic circle around the fan but they don't touch the fan blades. It does not show on any of the pics but I had to remove the top fins on the ram as it was too high to fit under the CPU cooler. Here's what the final build looks like.
