Okay I am purchasing a Asus P9x79 Deluxe anyone with this board feel like answering a few questions.

(Air Cooling temp while I build the case and get the water cooling gear)
Will the Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme fit this board and clear the ram slots I plan on using 64 G of ram
Will the NH-D14 SE2011 FIt and clear all the ram slots?
(The Videos I found on Youtube it looks like the SA would touch a video card in the first slot and the NH makes the first dimm slot on both banks unusable which would limit me to 48g of ram.

(SSD Caching)
Do you use the SSD caching Option? any problems with it so far?
My plan is for a single 256G SSD boot and a 128G SSD to cache a 2TB WD RE drive

My Alt Plan is to use a RevoDrive as boot and use the 128G to cache the 2tb WD RE drive but the Revo drives worry me so I am still thinking about that

If you do have a Revo drive do you know if you can still use SSD caching? i know some motherboards won't boot with the revo drive if raid is enabled

The Main reason I am going with the deluxe is for the connectivity if I didn't need the BT or WiFI I would use the WS version
