Hm, unless you already bought it...

MOBO
- ASUS P9X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
is quite good. No need for deluxe edition, you probably do not need all those fancy stuffs?

CPU
- Buy 4930, its the same price, lower heat, and about 5-7% faster

And, yes, before buying CPU cooler, check the height of your RAM modules, if they can be fited under your CPU cooler, like egz, Noctua, etc...they are so much low, so some higher RAM modules, can not be fited at all.

Thanks for the tips.. I haven't made a purchase yet.. I'll probably try to buy everything with amazon prime so I can easily return any parts that don't work or fit correctly. I think I wanted the deluxe because it had built in WiFi.. although I will probably try to run ethernet to the desktop.
