Finally! This is my first build. I intended for this to be greyscale build. Now, onto the reason why I choose these parts:
Processor: I wanted to go with Skylake Architecture because it's the latest. In addition, this processor was on discount when I wanted to purchase it.
CPU Cooler: I prefer the NZXT Kraken X61 to the Corsair H110i aesthetically.
Motherboard: One of the best looking motherboard out there. Several other features that I like are built in waterblock (when I have enough money to go full liquid cooled build), AC wi-fi, plenty of USB 3.0 & 3.1 (A & C) ports, and M2.
RAM: One of the best RAM in the market. I took out the red plastic from the stick so that it adheres to the colour scheme.
SSD: I used the 950 Pro as boot drive as it's one of the fastest drive on the market. In addition, I'll use it as scratch disk for video editing. I got the 850 Evo to install my games.
Video Card: I wanted to wait for Pascal at first but I got this 980Ti $350 cheaper than the normal market price brand new.
Case: Loved the look of this case. Plenty of space for cable management. The airflow is not too bad as well.
Power Supply: A reliable power supply from a reputable brand. I wanted to go with 650W but I can't find any shop that have the stock for it. So I went for 750W instead.
Case fans: I used the be quiet! SilentWings2 as exhaust fan at the back of the case. I replaced the 2x Phanteks fans at the front with the Noctua NF-A14.
Monitor: IPS panel, 1440p, 144Hz, Gsync. Basically this monitor ticks all of my requirements.
Lighting: I wanted to go with CableMod Magnetic RGB Led Kit at first. However, the only store that sells it in Melbourne has no stock. I went with the NZXT Hue+ instead. It looks great.
Custom cables: White cable to match the colour scheme.
I had trouble trying to get the components to POST at first. I spent 2 hours trying to figure it out, only to realize that the monitor is in "Deep Sleep" mode and I need to press one of the button to wake it up. I had no problem setting up Windows and the rest after that.
The CPU is currently overclocked to 4.5 GHz. I'm pretty sure I can get higher clock speed but I don't have the time to do further overclocking yet.
