Thanks, I am glad my hardship makes you feel better :heink:

Just out of curiosity, what other components are you going to use in your build...I switched cases and my Cosmos II will be here today. That is the one positive out of this, I was a bit hesitent on the Silverstone F02 BW...Now I know I will be completely satisfied with the Cosmos...

Good board...I am in the same boat with the cooling. I tried the Phanteks, but wouldn't quite work. So, I am trying to stay air cooled too...But, am not having a lot of luck with the clearance issue.

If I can't get it firgured out, I will go the H100 route.

But, the good news is my Coolermaster COSMOS II just got here... :bounce: That thing is BIG!!!

I have a new thread under cases...trying to post pics...having a problem getting it to work...

I looked at that case and seriously considered it...Nothing else quite like it. I like the color scheme on the board.

I am concerned about the noise of the H100 but may end up there too. Good build.

I was assumming/hoping that the shortage was because of the change to the C2 stepping. It would make sense for Intel to stop producing the C1 chips since C2 was due out today. A quick check is still showing out of stock on NewEgg, but I did see one site had eta's on 1/27 and 1/29. I'm still on back order with Amazon. Anyone else hear anything?

By the way, I'm in the same boat as others, I now have all my equipment and am just waiting on the processor.

I'm using:

Gigabyte x79-ud7
32 gig Corsair Vengence ddr3-1600
1 Seagate baracuda 2t sata III for primary dr

Everything else is recycled for now:
Thermaltake toughpower 850w
2 Seagate baragcuda 1t drives in raid 5
2 liton dvd burners w/lightscribe
Thermaltake Xaser case (I love this case)
nvidia 8800 ultra

Ok I just got word that there could be a "trickle" hitting the Online Retailers between WW05 and WW06. Now I know this isnt the best of answers but it is the most promising of answers I have gotten on these processors for over a month. So this is going to be the companies like Newegg, Tigerdirect and Amazon. I can't pin it down any closer than that so it is going to take some work on your part to get one of these "trickle" when they come in.

LOL I interpreted that as World War 5 and World War 6... :na:

I Just don't see how they are going to get the i7 3820 out on feb 13 when they can't even keep up with the i7 3930k. I want to test my other components to see if any are DOA.

When I spoke to the distributor, he was not and I didn't ask if that was a date the distributor would have them or the retailers. I assumed the retailers, but he was a bit vague. So, I am hoping that we will maybe see some of them over the weekend...I am going to do some more snooping on Monday if I can't find one by then. I need to get this done.

I was wondering what was going on, I already have all my other components but was told the 3930K was going to take time to ship from the manufacturer, hopefully it dosn't take too much longer, but I guess it's worth it for the C2.

I read a comment on Newegg about a guy posting his dismay that there were no availibility of 3930k's. He also mentioned the 20th of January, as a trickling date for availability, maybe a coincidence.

However, I also looked at Amazon and now they show 2-5 weeks. That makes me believe either they are expecting some soon or they have already received some and filled some of their backorders. Now I wish I had gone ahead and ordered a couple weeks ago.

Maybe I am completely wrong, but one thing for sure, the dates HAVE been moved up, that is a positive.

Intel limited Smart Response to 64 GB on the SSD, so no reason to buy 128 GB. The extra space would be made available as traditional storage, but I'd rather dedicate the whole drive to caching.

EDIT: Oh, that was the old z68 chipset. The Asus P9X79 boards seem to use their own SSD caching on the Marvel controller. Doesn't look like the RoG boards have it.
