This build went fairly smooth except for the case. The original vendor took 18 days to get from the west coast to the east coast only to arrive with damaged wiring. I ordered a new one from Newegg and they got me a replacement in two days.
I purchased the parts over a four week period around mid December as they went on sale to reduce the cost as much as possible.
Case The case was really easy to work with especially cable management except for the back side panel. Cable management must be really good on the back of the case or the side panel will not close or bow out.
Motherboard The only thing I didn't like about the motherboard is the USB 3.0 connector is on the side right above the SATA ports. This made it impossible to route the cable through the cable management grommets provided by the case so I had to go around the outside which made it not look so tidy.
Motherboard Part 2 This is the first build I've had without a dedicated sound card so I was very skeptical of the reviews and you tube videos saying the on-board sound was adequate. My previous build had the Asus Xonar D1 which had really good sound for $99.00 and was much better than the on-board sound of my previous motherboard so I found it hard to believe. But I have to say the on-board sound of the MSI is just as good so unless you're a professional or audiophile I wouldn't think you would ever a separate sound card.
Liquid Cooler I went with the H105 as opposed to the very popular H100i. I wanted the newer model and didn't care about the corsair link software or the extra wire it required. So far it's working well and is really quiet. Looks like there's a H110i now :(
MSI Video Cards These cards are working well, very quiet and so far no coil whine. I know this setup is over kill for my monitors but I was pushing my budget as it is and I'd like to get more use out of my Dell's. Besides I want to wait until the monitor technology settles down. There isn't much too choose from as far as the 1440p / 144 hz go and 4K is probably going to be the future.
PSU Best power supply I've owned. It's well built and extremely quiet.
I didn't use one of the noctua's in the picture or the NZXT Hue (didn't like the looks of the lights). The LED's built into the case, pump, motherboard, and video cards gave a nice lighted accent, but not too much like the Hue would have done.
I would highly recommend the VELCRO brand one wrap thin ties from Amazon if you're doing a build. You get 100 for around $6.00 USD.
