I've never had a problem since day one with my 680s with any game ever! And I challenge any 7970 or 670 owners to beat these air cooled, two card scores:
I notice you're using a 3930k. Doesn't the 600 series need PCIe 3.0 to hit its max potential, thereby requireing the Ivy Bridge chips?

Hehe, I can't wait for you to get the new 780s, they are suppose to be nearly twice as fast as the 680s.

The mobo in my sig has 5 PCIe 3.0 slots. And to my knowledge PCIe 3.0 isn't dependent on the CPU. Please correct me if I'm wrong, thanks.

Just a quick update, all parts except 2 (GTX 680, H100) have shipped & will arrive Monday by the end of the day. (Possible Tuesday for the RAM & SSD, didn't order fast enough).

I will be posting pictures of every step of the build, as well as progress on my first real overclocking!
