It looks like it will from the description at newegg and a quick google search. But, just about everyone in these forums will tell you the Sabertooth is not worth the added cost over more mainstream $150-180 mobos.

THx for the replay. I like the sabertooth because it looks awesome and it has good cooling on the motherboard.
Here is what im thinking about, tell me what you think? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/MQUr

I am not a fan of that motherboard. Most people with them remove the armor anyway due to cooling issues.

Look at Gigabyte and ASRock offerings.

^ Tiny is on it - most folks report the thermal armor is actually a thermal insulator. The biggest deal is that if it's the only board that has it, but all the other boards operate fine, it's probably not needed... pretty simple.

Think I just threw up a little looking at that build.

If you want to spend a lot of money for not a lot of return it's fine. On the other hand, you can:
- drop to the 3570K since HT doesn't show much promise for gaming
- better to get 2x8GB, 1600MHz, 9-9-9-24, 1.5V RAM - you will not be able to tell the difference on an IB platform
- again, just get a ASRock Extreme4 or ASUS -V if you really like them instead of the snaggletooth
- either go SLI 670s or 7970s instead of the 680s (just not worth the added cost) - get multi-fan cards, not reference blower style (quieter with more OC potential)
- you'll need a maximum of about 750W for this build - 850W is a great choice for some headroom and efficiency - get Bronze unless the Gold is almost the same price, electricity is very expensive where you live, or you plan to run this under load for the better part of the day, days on end

The Corsair H110 will NOT fit a define R4. I bought one today and it got stuck on the metal frame around the IO shield. I don't know about the other Hxx series coolers, but don't buy a H110 if you're using a Define R4!

I did a build recently with a http:// and a H110. It will not fit in the top due to MBO clearance issues.

It will fit in the front however there is not a good way to mount the radiator to the tooless fan bracket. I'm sure you could mod something but I wouldn't buy an H110 for the define R4.

Unless... you know what you're doing. Here's a guy who made the front fan filter work:
