This is the very first PC I've built by myself (The PC I had been using was a prebuilt from Mid-2011 built by a company called Digital Storm, and served me well over the years). I did extensive research beforehand, and came up with these parts.
Intel 5820k: Love this CPU. Great value for what you get, and has plenty of PCI lanes for my uses (Not to comfortable with overclocking it, though. Tips, anyone?).
H100i GTX: Great cooler, no complaints thus far. CPU temps are well within nominal range. I personally like Corsair link, although I know many people who don't.
X99A Sli Krait: Black/white scheme goes with my build, has all the features I need and some extra. End of story.
16gb LPX: Went with a 2x8 kit because I plan to upgrade to 32gb in the near future (giving the ability for quad channel).
Samsung 950 Pro: Blazing fast M.2 NVMe drive. This thing absolutely rocks, and I have no regrets about making this my primary drive.
850 Evo: Secondary drive, does its job very well.
GTX 980 Ti: The star of the build. I love this thing to death. I haven't played to much with it yet, but the little that I have teases excellent performance for the rest of my library (I have Arma 3 installing as I type this :p).
Define S: Love the aesthetics, but cable management was a *****.
EVGA 850w P2: Great PSU (I believe it got a 9.something on Jonnyguru). Has a fanless mode which cuts down on acoustics.
NZXT Hue+: Has yet to arrive, since it was out of stock when I ordered it. I'll be sure to add more pics when it does, though ;).
All solid state storage, fanless modes on the GPU and PSU, and Corsair link all contribute to lower acoustics. I barely notice when it's on without my ATH-A700x headphones on, and there's no chance of me hearing it when they are XD.
Temps were tested while the PC was on "quiet mode" (I started the benchmarks while it was on this mode in corsair link... whoops XD). When I switched to performance mode, CPU temps went to 55-57 degrees, and the GPU temps went to 68 degrees.
Feel free to leave thoughts/tips/criticism... I'm glad to hear all of it :).
