Edit 24/8/16: Did a better write up of Description
Note: Please don't mind some spellings, I'm from the UK, and we spell 'color' as 'colour'. The correct way :D /jk
Did not really think of a fancy name. 'Lian' just come to my lazy mind, simply part of the name of the case manufacture. The name is simple, clean and unique, which is what I am going for the build.
The main aim for the build is pure silence. The fans only spin at 400rpm when system idle and only 600rpm during gaming load. The D5 pump spins at 2000rpm (out of 4800rpm) and is virtually inaudible. I am willing to sacrificed cooling for silent gaming.
I had no budget for the aesthetics department. Wanted it to look good for my new house when I move in. But the build is purposed for 1440p gaming primarily, so did not spend way over the top for Titan XP and Broardwell-E etc.
I'm from the UK, and PC parts pricing fluctuates a lot, plus our 20% tax on everything we buy :(. I bought everything before Brexit, at pretty much its lowest price point. Total ~£1950 (~$2300 exchanged at the time).
CPU: i7 6700K: Quite self explanatory, there is only 2 options for unlocked CPUs on the Z170 platform, and I chose the more powerful one.
Motherboard: Asus MAXIMUS VIII GENE: Had this from my previous build, at the time is was the best mATX option available, now arguably super-seeded by the ASRock Z170M OC Formula. I like the Asus's grey/chrome/black (and very little red) colour theme, and built my whole computer around this colour theme.

Well, I am personally very happy with the build, I built is as a centre piece for my office/bedroom within to be new house. I feel I achieved this. It is a fairly unique build, designed and executed by myself and am pretty proud of it.
I am very sensitive with noise, and very rarely used the word 'silence' to describe a computer. Unfortunately this does not make it into my 'silent' category. Of course, it is extremely quiet, and can not be heard more than 1 metres away. In fact, nearly the most quiet I have ever built over the 15 years. I probably am being very picky here but some people use the word silent more easily than others.
Note: This is an revised description. Judging from the comments, I have been receiving great response from the PCPP community. Reached +90 within 24 hours without being a feature build and I am very happy about that. I would like to thank every one that has taken time to comment and upvote. It feels very nice when my hours of effort are appreciated. +1 for everyone!
