Once again thanks to all that helped me configure my pc I ordered. 

With that said I spoke with John from DS today and we had to make some changes.  I had to change the motherboard due to the liquid cooling I chose would not work with the deluxe mobo.  I also did not know that the I7 3820 would not overclock very well, being as it does not have an unlocked multiplier.  I chose to update to the I7 3930 hex core.  One more change I requested was to have 2 different colors for my liquid cooling.  Orange/Blue or Red/Blue.  Using Blue for the video cards and the other color for the CPU and chipset. 

This is my new configuration:
