690 II Advanced using E-ATX/SEB and Mobo Help.

I'm planning to order the mobo and build within one week.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119216
This is my case- it's already here.

Now, will these fit?

That's the CEB Mobo.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131802
That's the EATX Mobo.

The top one is my top pick, and that's my first question.
Now, between these mobos, which one should i pick, should the ASrock Champion not fit? I have a 3930k and a H100, planning to overclock and keep until Skylake, maybe upgrade to a open loop next year.

Those four, although i'm leaning toward the first for the extra USB3 ports and the second one for the five year warranty.
Any opinions?

  1. can you use a website other than newegg for Canadian users please :P

    but EATX will fit fine in the CM 690 II advanced, but if your getting the usb3 edition make sure your new mobo supports usb3 front panel

    if your gonna upgrade to an open loop next year then i would suggest getting a cheaper cooler now instead of an h100

    The Open Loop is just a floating idea right now- i'll see how the H100 performs.
    But what i'm most curious about is the CEB mobo- as that's cheaper then the EATX and has more features. Will that fit?

    can you link em from a different website, newegg redirects me to the canadian website so i can't see em

    and also http://shop.xs-pc.com/xsp/XSPC-Rasa-450-RS120-WaterCooling-Kit_25417.html i would reccomend somthing like this over the h100

    The H100 is already here. A little late to do much about that.
    As for the mobos, i can't seem to find another link readily.
    I'll just list them out for you to find- it'll be faster that way.
    ASRock X79 Champion - CEB Form Factor
    ASUS Rampage IV Extreme - EATX Form Factor
    Those are the cards i'm asking if they'll fit or not. The Champion is the one i'm most interested in, but if it wont fit, these are the alternatives, in decending order.
    ASUS P9X79 DELUXE -ATX Form Factor
    ASUS X79 Sabertooth -ATX Form Factor
    ASRock X79 Extreme9 -ATX Form Factor
    ASRock X79 Extreme6/GB -ATX Form Factor

    Edit:
    This is also on the list.
    ASUS P9X79 PRO

    All right. Thanks. It's between that and the Pro. I'll make a final decision, pending one payment.
    Thank you for your time.
