Not a gamer, built this for 4K video editing, but now that I have the capability, I might as well start gaming a little. Everything posted during external set-up, no problems.

1300 watts is a bit high. Even with 3 970's in SLI wouldn't need that much. Could've gone with a cheaper mobo as well. I picked up a Z97A from Newegg Open Box for $103, OC's just as good as the other's. Build is great looking!

well, he might be upgrading to dual 295x2 in crossfire which the cards alone are over 1000 watts drawn

I knew many of you would ask that question haha. The reason was purely cost, and also in case I wanted to do a 2-way SLI (and more components) in the future. I purchased the 1300W PSU on sale for $160 and it also had a $30 rebate, so it came out to being $130 before tax. The 1000G2 costs ~$150 and the 850W ~$130 so it was a no brainer.

Very similar build to mine, other than the 1300w psu that you will get grief for, great build!

I agree with everyone else about the PSU. But the rest looks beautiful.

OK great build but I have a question. How loud are the fans?

Surprisingly very quiet. My old (10yr old) laptop makes more noise.
