RE: Question about the Thermaltake Core V71 'Extreme' case
You don't want the "2011" Noctua cooler, that's specific to Socket 2011 CPUs. You want the Socket 1150 version (no 2011 in the title).

Personally, I'd recommend a "Z97" mobo, since they're basically the same price as "Z87", but you'll have the option to upgrade the CPU for a few more generations. Along with some newer interfaces for future Solid State Drive technology.

The Gigabyte Z97 D3P is pretty solid: http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-1150-Expr...B00K2RQDLQ . There's also a Black Edition that's...black...and gets stress tested before being shipped and has a 5 year warranty. If you want SLI support, there's the GA-Z97X-UD5H. There's also an Asus Z97-PRO, but it's had above average DOA's, based on Newegg/Amazon user reviews.

The case size comes down to your preference. Do you want a ton of room to work in, cool stuff, and have 10 hard drives and 4 GPUs, or do you want something that would fit easily in your Den? You could easily jam all of this build into a mid-tower, and still have room for 2 GPUs. You could even go down to a micro-ATX mobo and a micro-ATX tower.
GPU: NVIDIA Titan X, CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz OC'd @ 4.5GHz, Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4, Mem: 2x Corsair Dominator 2133MHz 8GB, SSD: Samsung 850 EVO, Case: Corsair Carbide 500R, PSU: Corsair TX850M, CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14, Case Fans: 4x Cooler Master Excalibur 120mm PWM, Monitors: 3x ViewSonic VX2270SMH-LED in NVIDIA Surround
