Thanks! Everything is coming in today except the SSD and OS. Either way I won't be able to work on it until Friday.

Sending back the MSI motherboard. The board felt cheap and I've had multiple problems with it and my SLI setup. Overclocking was ok, but I fully expected better with the H70 setup.

I've decided to go with the ASUS Revolution mobo instead. Wish me luck.
