Ya the Devil`s Canyon is better then the 1st gen Haswell, good choice.

If the top of the case can take 2 140mm fans, take a look at this one.

But you can always use 120s and the H80i

This is also a good cooler.

Yep I was looking at Gav's morphed thermal paste question :)

The 450D, Corsair Obsidian Series Black 450D High Airflow Mid-Tower Computer Case CC-9011049-WW: Computers & Accessories
can fit the top double radiator and where it would be in the house is not an issue and probably the preferred location on the top,
But there's a little time to decide plus the upgrade fans for it and I guess elsewhere too for a little more quietness ?

I went with the Corsair H110i GT, I ordered directly from Corsair, it`ll be here Wednesday.
Much better construction on all the parts and the tubes look much nicer.

I couldn't get any assurances so I canceled the z87

They seem to think it's a ups issue but in reality it's an agreement between Newegg and ups
ups points at Newegg and Newegg points at ups

I point to other places to buy stuff.

I live in a apartment/ condo where neighbors come and go which most I wouldn't trust as far as I could throw them
Not to mention people follow ups drivers and take the stuff they know full well ups will drop it and run.
If you get very many packages, you may want to consider getting a private mailbox service (I've been using them for years; I only get junk mail at home). Since they are a commercial address, carriers can't do a drop and run. Once delivered, packages and mail are kept in a secure place until it is convenient for you to get them. Even regular mail is safer since the mail boxes are individually locked. The banks of mail boxes most apartments have need to have only one lock picked, drilled, or punched to access all the mail boxes.

Oh that's sweet Brian nobody has that one :)
Prefilled :/ sounds right up my alley !
I'll probably pick up the i7 Monday at MicroCenter I have some dough burning a hole in my pocket and that's a deal not worthy of passing up

I'll have work on my photography skills Doug might give up on the photo doo-da app and use my camera

It's tough to constitute that but it all depends on this next delivery
If this orders preferences are ignored I will indeed
It is a pain to deal with two different companies to get a single refund for something so basic
