Hello everyone. Took me 6 months to make it happen, and it's still not finished (updates will follow)
Primary uses will be for folding, gaming and content creation, streaming in the near future.
Reasons for the parts I chose.
CPU: wanted a heavy duty processor that can support up to quad sli (no estimate on when that will be, maybe never, but plans may change. Too early to tell.)
Reference gpu's: the support for waterblocks on reference pcb are much easier to find and are already available ( blocks will come
Custom loop: after many Aio reviews and actually being hands on with one for my cousins build (h110i gt) I felt the performance/dollar ratio was ****, absolute ****. The only thing I see Aio coolers good for are people who want to experiment with lo cooling, setting up the xspc kit was as simple as building the computer itself. And idle temps and load are much better, rad is copper/brass. And the d5 pump has much more power than anyone really would need for a CPU + sli configuration. But the system was chosen based on expansion and future modding.
MoBo: well, the features of course. It was a pretty penny, but overall worth it. Highly recommend this board.
Ram: cheap, and fast, possibly buy the same kit again just because.
Storage: Where's the beef? Waiting to see if there will be any high capacity hdd's other than 4tb at the moment I don't have the support peripherals to even have a need for the hdd's just yet. A 240ssd boot drive, and a 1tb for games and misc programs will suffice for now. Leaving the hdd purchase for later. Who knows maybe we will see price drops and/or bigger hdd in the future.
Psu: pretty self explanatory.
Chasis. Originally I wanted to buy the 900d but I figured I'd give nzxt a try. Corsair has always been my go to company, overall I like it, how ever i just may need more rad space
UPDATE 7-6-15 purchased cable mod c series red black. Blocks and rads/fans next
Upcoming parts/purchases Rx240 rad Ex120 rad 2x 980 ti waterblocks & back plates PG279Q (rog swift IPS) 1080p 24" panel Possible 4k panel. Still undecided
