All done. Just benching it now.
So far 3dMark 11 is over P14000

I'm still figuring out how to set clocks and stuff. It is kinda doing its own thing at the moment ramping up and slowing down when it needs to. I want to set it solid and then see my score.

Here it is

looks nice, interesting ram layout.
why did you only go 1866MHz ram?
what was the difference between the sabertooth and rampage mobo?

why the 4930k over the 4960k, I know the answer is nearly twice the price for little benefit. but you did say;

1866 is what the MB can take or so it said on the web. Then I get it and it says it can take higher. Orange_Colorz_PDT_14

No biggy. Seems to work well.
The GPU will be WC. I will get the block for it for my next tour here. there is enough room in this case for more WC Orange_Colorz_PDT_07
Not really sure the difference between Rampage and sabertooth. I think it might just be the TUF components maybe?
I can tell you it is bloody quiet until I start gaming then the GPU kicks in and it is load. It gots up to 71deg before I adjusted the fan curves. They say it can go up to 105 before you start seeing artefacts.
I don't want to go there. WC here I come. Most guys are seeing 45's on water.

oh yeah, the WIFI 4G is going ok so far. I just cracked 8gb of DL's so I am now shaped but I'm still getting low 100 pings in BF4.
Was better when I wasn't shaped.

This really is the only option I have here unfortunately.

Ok, I have used 28Gb of my 8Gb allowance. Orange_Colorz_PDT_03
Shaped to 64Kbps, this crap is slow Orange_Colorz_PDT_10. How did we ever work on the netz with this speed?

Gaming seems to be ok so far although no pings below 100 but still playable.

The 4g service where I am though is atrocious , theres no way I could game on it , not much better then dial-up.

lol, I can remember 4.2 kbs on dialup, thought that was good, a 150 ping was the dux nutz on an Unreal Tournament server
