Yep that was the other one I was looking at :)
I just started looking at Asus since the board was one too
Then drifted to EVGA and saw the water cooled one

Any thoughts on Optical drives ? LG Electronics 14x Internal BDXL Blu-Ray Burner Rewriter WH14NS40 - Bulk Drive - Black: Computers & Accessories

I'm now looking at the second round
I'll get the i7 Monday so here's the only needs I know of so far,

1) Water cooling I believe that one has been said H100i fine tune the fans with some of the quite ones suggested to Gav to try.
2) Optical drive in the dark there I would like a fairly good one to do the basics and with blue-ray goodies not sure about the one I linked to above though ?
3) dual sdd hot swap in front top (not behind the side panel) that is just weird to me and inconvenient most of those drive bay I'll probably remove out of the way of air flow although I may leave one large or a dual for smaller hdds if possible ?
Oops 4)AddRam Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10): Computers & Accessories
I already have the dual hot swap evo but it's not as pretty as I would like on this build
Anyway that is all I can think of anything I'm missing

A hot swap in a 5 1/4 bay is quite handy. I find myself using it a lot when it is so easy to get to.

Yes Sir I've been using it a very basic mode only swapping from one bay and leave the other as storage I'll probably keep it like that :)

I swapped the ram link to sdram

That is a very nice Asus card Mike, but I`m staying with EVGA.

Gav you are gonna love that card.

I picked up the 4790K today, and the Sabertooth Z87 should be here Monday

Yea my thought was a mobo and gpu of the same manufacture would have it's advantages :/

But the water cooled EVGA has me intrigued to say the least :)

Monday for me on the cpu

Need help on the burner but Micro Center has a bunch to choose from looking like a LG Blu-ray at this point ?

Well got the case and installed the Blu-ray burner and Dual EZ swap evo in it,
I was expecting a little more wiring in the case/ harness
Not sure if all of that will come with the psu or what :/

Also not sure what these black plastic brackets are for ??
