UPDATE!! NEW PARTS!!! For all of you who saw Ver. 1 you will notice that I have acquired some new hardware that is not even close to what I planned on getting. If you have not seen Ver. 1 I would suggest going and looking at it so you can see just how far this system has came in literally one week. I got all new parts except my existing hard drives, my H80i, and my case(+fans). It should be obvious that the i7 is better than my old i5 in every single way. Buuuut what I'm sure some of the keyboard commandos will argue is that the GTX 770s are older than my 960 therefore meaning they wouldn't be as practical due to power consumption and heat and such. However, only part of that is true. Yes they are older, and yes they use more power and therefore produce more heat, but the 770 and the 960 are actually equal for all intents and purposes. But having TWO 770s in SLI, that just blows the 960 out of the water (plus it looks totally bad azz with 2 graphics cards in there with that huge motherboard and tall ram). Also I believe the specs on here for my motherboard are wrong because it is definitely much wider than my old board which was ATX, this one must be EATX. The parts marked as $25 are the new parts and they are marked that way because I got all of them for 200$ TOTAL believe it or not. My friend and I saw a gaming PC with those parts and a different AIO and case, plus another one of my SSD and a 2TB hard drive on Craigslist for $500. He agreed to pay $300 and me $200. I took it home, spent a couple hours flip-flopping parts and installing Windows on his, and there we go! He got all my old parts because they suit him better and I got the good stuff out of the Craigslist PC. Now we both have BADAZZ gaming PCs that are more than what we need and are both water-cooled and quiet!
Personal note for the Ver. 1 fans: I think I have decided to ditch my custom side panel window mod simply because with the H80i rear mounted, there is less than a 1/8in in between the radiator and side panel when it closes. And I can't find a piece of glass only 1/16in thick anywhere. So my next step to obtaining the glory of the window, now that I have an i7 and SLI, is to get a Corsair 450D case. Still in the deciding phase on what case and when I will get it, but the 450D looks like it will win out. It has everything I want, the downside is the price unfortunately, as well as it's literally the max height for my setup, may have to modify the setup or shave just a 1/16-1/18in off the feet for a little more fan clearance up top (yes i know that reduces bottom fan room but I will be using static pressure fans everywhere regardless.)
