Hi all,
I am planing to build a new PC soon and I have some special needs.

First of all I am a programmer and I have some code projects which are huge piece of code (take long to compile) and I need to run my coding environment on a VM which I plan to make available from everywhere using vmware workstation (and backup this VM every day for some obvious reasons :) ). I also will have two or tree different vm (not all the time) running windows server 2008.(test environment and may be a little game server sometimes :) ) That explain my CPU choice ;) 

I am also an hardcore gamer playing latest games such as BF3-4 Assassins creed 3-4 etc... And I will soon want to play it using a 3 screens setup. That's explain my mobo/Graphic card choice.

What I am thinking about is that when my computer will be no more able to run latest game on high graphic mode I'm gonna have to add some graphic cards (when it will be cheaper) to run on SLI mode to finally come with a 4 SLI mode setup. I also would like to come with an overclocking solution which one of theses two liquid cooling solution is the best fit considering my case:


And how much can I overclock with OE CPU fan?

Do you think that this setup will feed my needs?

There is the complete setup:

ASUS Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

EVGA ACX Cooler 03G-P4-2784-KR GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

Rosewill CAPSTONE-750 750W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire ...

Intel Core i7-4930K Ivy Bridge-E 3.4GHz LGA 2011 130W Six-Core Desktop Processor BX80633i74930K

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD512BW 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

G.SKILL Trident X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10Q-32GTX

Seagate Hybrid Drive ST4000DX001 4TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Thanks for help

here's my 2 cents on all that, this will be one hell of a monster, CPU and Mobo are powerfull but also very expensive. I'm thinking that your not on a budget.....Yes this setup should fit all your needs for both fast compiling ad serious gaming. for compiling the SSD will help a lot. I dont think you'll need to overclock anything though. That motherboard has Bluetooth and all, I'm just concerned that other less expensive Mobos could give you the same speed and needed options for less. Fir the CPU, you've selected a previous Generation, any reasons for that ? Your call. Good setup.

No reason at all for the CPU this is just because on the benchmark it's always on top 10 and it seem's that this CPU is an adaptation from server CPU so I thought that it would be perfect to meet my virtualization needs. About the mobo I chosed that one mostly for the overclocking possibilities and the 4 sli gpu possibility. I know that for now I will not need to overclock... but someday that configuration will become a little bit old to run latest game at utlra/higher graphics that's where I will overclock this PC. When my GPU will be cheaper I will add some to get better graphics performances...

About the case I kind of changed my mind I really loved the corsair H100I and I think that will fit better on antec twelve hundreds case...

Thanks for the answer
