Ok so it was about time to change my x58 rig(R2E was awesome but it was enough), and here is my new:

Asus P9X79 Deluxe, LGA 2011 X79
Intel i7 3820 3.6(OC’ed to 4.4)
Cooler Master 412S 2x2100 rpm Gembird high-speed TUV fans
16 GB DDR3 2.400 Kingston HyperX Beast
64 GB FiD SSD(SSD caching next on the list to-do)
1 TB Samsung Sata 32 MB Cache
3 x 500 GB WD Sata 32 MB cache
Sapphire ATI HD 7950 with boost 3GB GDDR5 (crossfire)
Asus ATI HD 7950 DC2T 3GB GDDR5 (crossfire)
LG DVD/RW
Cooler Master HAF 922((200mm front and top fans; 2x120mm rear fans; 120mm back; DIY 120mm on top of the dvd rom-to blow directly to CPU intake fan)
Samsung T220 monitor (soon Samsung 27”)
Cooler Master PSU silent pro M 1000W
Ups Mustek P 1000W

Next is to get Samsung 27” monitor, and to make hybrid with SSD caching. Here are pics of my rig and benchmarks. Comments and feedback …welcome :D

Its never recommended to get a coolermaster PSU, but other than that it looks good.

heres what i would have done differently

-a i7 3770k performs better in every vs a 3820
-the faster ram didnt make your system go much faster. more like it voided your warranty
-why the 3 500gb drives? raid doesnt make it much faster
-the x79 up4 motherboard is a better choice. runs cooler, overclocks further and is much cheaper
-you didnt need 1000w in any situation with that rig, 850 would have been more than sufficient. cooler master is decent, but there are better options
-you shouldnt be doing SSD caching if you put enough money in your rig to have a 256gb SSD

here is a good monitor. 1440p will treat you well

- I wanted X79 architecture.
- I know that there is no significant difference from 1600 to 2400, but I want to OC a little xD.
- Those drives are storage only, they are not in raid (3x500 and 1x1TB) Operating system and programs are installed on the SSD.
- I am very satisfied with Asus (my previous R2E mobo), so that is why I decided to go with P9X79 Deluxe.
- I had that PSU from my old rig.
- I will consider this, and buying larger SSD instead of SSD caching with mechanical drive.

p.s I am thinking of to get this monitor: http://www.asus.com/Monitors_Projectors/MX279H/

Any thoughts ? ?

there is no benefit of x79 if you are not using the 6 core. and if you intend on running 3 video cards, its also not that great given the 3rd card never scales really well

get this panel instead. not as new but is much less expensive and has a sturdier and adjustable stand

I will try to order that panel. I doubt I can find it in the region where I live.
