Hello and thanks for taking the time to check out my build. First let me start off by saying this is my second build ever, first one was actually just a couple of month back. After my first build was completed i did some overclocking and was getting a decent 4.4 Ghz but felt that my z77 sabertooth didn't fulfill my needs. So I started looking for a board that would and evenually came across an ad on craigslist for a new Maximus VI Extreme, so after I took all the necessary precautions I ended up with this board for only $180.
So from there I knew i needed a new chip and picked up the i7-4770K. Some of the parts are from my first build. Such as the video cards, psu, cooler, sound card and case. And just bought those parts for the previous build that were a bit more budget orientated.Bought both SSD after a couple of weeks as felt like the system was missing in performance with just average hdd but they can put quite a dent in your wallet. Also bought the two WD hdd for storage and put them in raid 0. I make sure to have the proper back ups so i wouldn't have to worry so much about the raid 0. The ram seemed like it would be just right and also read good reviews on them went with two 8gb so i can add to more sticks in the future. For my video cards when i first bought them i original was planning on buying one and unsure wither to buy the 770 or 780 and the 780 was abit out of my budget and at the time so i went with the EVGA 4gb 770 classy. But after I installed the 770 I wanted more and more lol. So i picked up a second one a couple of weeks later. And about a month after i had both cards I decided to do the Step Up program and just waiting for my turn in queue so i can get the 780 instead, which is reference and see how the overclocking turns out. Also not to fond of the acx cooling I think blower is more of a better option when running multiple cards and running on air. I plan to some day turn it into a water cooled system but I have to do my research and hardware selection which will probably take about a little over a year. Sorry about the description earlier just strapped on time earlier and was on my phone. I will be updating things abit more later as well. And hopefully when i can afford it buy a 120hz monitor or a 4k. SO if anyone has any recommendations on some monitors let me know. And always appreciate everyone thought, opinions and advice.
