You could have gotten a GTX 680 for that money you spend on the GTX 580...
And a better SSD.
Awesome build. I agree with 16gb of RAM being too much, but it looks like you know what you're doing....so I'm sure there's a reason :P
Which way in the case is the front!!! haha
You should have gone with a gtx 670, cheaper and more powerful.
You also should have spent a bit on an i5 3570k, since it is quite a bit more power efficient, so you would be payed back that $20 in the long run. I also hope you do some serious over clocking, because that is a pretty good cooler - don't overdue it of course.
Either way, great overall build, happy gaming.
hey guys this is my old rig. from 2011/2012. getting a new rig with lga 2011 and gtx 690
your cable management is incredible
Nice let me know how that 690 runs!
Great build, but do you really need 16GB RAM? You only need 8 top unless you're doing some heavy video editing/rendering. Even then 16GB is a lot.
I would also switch the liquid cooling for some kind of high-end fan set up.
Other than those two little things, this is a great build :)
(Looks awesome too :P)
