Will it blend
I haven't built a computer from fresh scratch in about 20 years, so I need some help knowing if these particular parts will all come together. Mostly I'm worried about the cooling.

ASRock X79 Extreme 6
Rosewill BLACKHAWK-ULTRA Gaming Super Tower Computer Case
Corsair Hydro Series H100
Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition i7-3960X
2 x Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 OC 3GB DDR5
ASUS PCI-Express x1 Sound Card

Supposedly the case is enormous, but the reviews on the H100 all talk about problems getting it to fit in some cases. I'm also hoping based on the recommendation here that I'll be able to fit the two 7970's and still have a slot for the sound card. So will it?

I was thinking of something else when I looked at the title.Tongue
H100=Performance at the cost of noise. But then again if you use your own fans it's not a problem. Do push/pull if you can because the 3960X is gonna need a LOT of horsepower to overclock. On that note, only buy the 3960X if you are showing off.
As for the graphics cards, do a SLI config with two 680's. They are lucky enoght to be in stock right now.

If your buying the best of the best might as well go with the newly released Nvidia Geforce GTX 690 which nearly matched 2x 680's in SLI without dealing with the SLI component. And is a significant improvement over the previous generations 590 that wasn't highly received.
