This build was interesting... Ive never worked with such a big case before (seriously the thing is a small house). It made it difficult at times but the end result was extremely nice. Although this was my first gaming build with an Intel CPU and I can say that I hated it. The latch to hold the processor down is a total pain and is way over complicated. Trying to get the backplate on for the H100i was a total pain and trying to center the waterblock sucked, for any gaming builds in the future Im only gonna use AMD so much more simple and for a gaming build theres hardly any difference in performance. The GTX 780 Ti (put simply) is just pure badassery and it dominates any game you throw at it. As for the power supply the fully modular design is very nice and easy to use, although having used both Corsair and EVGA power supplies I think I will stick with EVGA in the future. To me they are more simple and they look like they are built just a tad better. The MOBO is the coolest MOBO ive ever used. Its fully water cooling capable but you can chose just to use passive heat sinks if you like (thats what I did). The RAM... IDK how the hell I overlooked the color but all in all it came out looking quite well.
Let me know what you guys think! THANKS!
