What is going to be the purpose for this rig? Gaming, Workstation, etc. Also, why that monster of a power supply if there isn't going to be a graphics card? Or do you plan on adding one in the future?

I need help making one. I haven't made the whole thing that's what I said. And it's for gaming.

Made a little mistake so had to replace.

It's powerful. Very powerful.

Water cooled, overclock-able, crossfire capable... and black. Very very black.

The case is black, the parts are black. Everything is black.

What about this almost exactly the same but full case not half: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-phan001wt

I own the Enthoo Pro and believe me, the thing is the monolith from 2001. It's a big, black, slab-sided monster that is gloriously easy to work in. Which is why I suggested it

It's a Mid Tower Case in the way the Dodge Ram is a mid sized truck... :p

You do not need a case designed for E-atx mother boards

No 6700K?

Non-K overclocking. All the fun, without paying the $75 premium.

Ah lol. Custom BIOS

Custom? They're BIOS updates from the manufacturer.

And this is "reasonably" cheap?? Reasonable would be less than half of this to call it "cheap".
