Would just like to point out that is build is incomplete, well, lets be realistic its never going to be complete :D
This is my first build I have done, and let me say; I gathered an absolute load of advice.... and... I didn't follow it. I got the FX-9590 when I shouldn't have. I was lured in by their 8 cores and 4.7 minimum GHz. I should have put more research into this and maybe it would have been cheaper.
That aside I just want to explain a brief history of this build. I built it back 4 months or so? Don't even know anymore. Anyway, I had a Corsair H80iGT AOI cooler, but because I quickly swapped my processor over last minute I started to regret my decision. My PC crashed when I played games, I tried everything... literally. At this point I knew where I had gone wrong. I chose AMD, They are cheaper yes that is true, however they are hungry for power and emit a lot of heat. Too much heat. It kept crashing because of the heat causing me to have to buy custom watercooling. So I took to EK-WB and bought the products.
Just wanna say, The watercooling is scary,but.. it's so easy its unreal. All I did was read about the parts, manuals and other guides. The only thing that was hard was the fear of pouring the fluid in and it leaking everywhere. Which, it did... But it was not much, and was because I tilted the case trying to plug in a wire. I soon cleaned it up and dried everything and it was fine.
After the watercooling I love the processor. It is amazing, but I have a feeling that my wallet doesn't :/ seeing as it basically burnt a big hole. Besides that it looks awesome with it, and performs well.
My boot time is around 10 seconds, even with a full hdd nearly. I can run games max @ 60fps, Rainbow Six Siege (Which is undeniably one of my favorite games), Fallout 4, Starwars Battlefront etc.. You get the picture.
The case is, well, what can I say. It's NZXT, made for looks but not airflow, not to mention the cable management was a hard time. The space between the back panel and the actual back of the case is minimal.
And I swear to god if someone else says to me "ehhhg bottom barrel PSU" I couldn't care less. It does the job, no issues with it yet but I am going to upgrade to a SuperNOVA in the foreseeable future.
Future Upgrades PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 Case: Thermaltake P5 - If you havent seen this case then look at it. Looks amazing I am ordering this very soon. GPU: Another MSI GTX970 Cooling: Either change the tubes to PETG/Acrylic or expand the loop to cool the GPU(s)
Please, I am welcome to suggestions :)
I have said this to many after finishing this build but I want everyone to know. Watercooling is portrayed to be extremely difficult and yes it may be, if you are trying to watercool like 4 GPU's, a Processor all with PETG tubing on your first attempt. But if you actually look into the parts, I would use EK-WB for easiness, and watch videos/guides then it is like lego, well the easy sets anyway.
Very disappointing that I have this computer and I mainly play Garry's Mod, please don't hate me...
Absolute power hungry CPU, does the job but you have to have the money for it...
Never had a problem with it. Does what it says on the tin, probably one of the best thermal pastes out there.
Amazing but why those little tiny wires at the bottom nearly made me cry trying to put them in :(. Besides that It is amazing especially if you spill some watercooled fluid on it, then it wont break.

Amazing ram, looks the part and plays it too.
Small, Fast, enough space for an OS or 2 what more could you want? I picked this up second hand and my PC still takes 10 seconds to turn on. masterpiece.
Its a SSHDD, it hasn't broken, so its good.
Amazing, its cheaper now than before but I can max out any game at 60fps.
Huge case, expected it to be smaller. No external bays. Little cable space or room for watercooling. However it is silent (Mainly because its not good with airflow) and does look nice. Good for small builds but not for big
Hasn't broke. Besides all the people telling me this sucks, I think its brilliant. However the cables can be too long, making the bottom of my case like a bowl of spaghetti
Better than the rest.
Loud, but effective. They are amazing. But I took them out because they are far too loud my parents can hear them in the room on the other side of the house...
About as curved as earth, you know its curved, but you can't see it. Graphically it is nice but its not as curved as you would think.
