I want to build a black and white themed gaming rig. I want it to feature a 980Ti and keep it at $2000 or less. Also wouldnt mind a decent Skylake cpu and not water cooled.

Leaves you some room to get PSU sleeve cables.

Apparently WD hdds have been failing a lot recently.

I've always been partial to Western Digital over say, Seagate or Hitachi/Toshiba etc. I've never had a HDD go bad on me, but that is disconcerting to hear.

But yes, I overlooked the fact that this case covers the PSU and it's not visible through the window.

Zeteriz, you can get another seasonic PSU and swap that i7 for the i5 and you would still have a great white/black (with LED accents if you didn't notice I did that, it's what my build will be) build.

nothing wrong with him getting that psu, as it is an excellent unit, the only problem is the price due to it being a silent unit..
