I'm trying to make sense of all the fans... are you planning to replace all the fans that come with the case and cpu cooler? Looks like a solid build otherwise.

yes im replacing all the stock fans. linus tech tips on youtube was saying the stock fans are not that good because they dont create to much pressure especially on my cooler. the fans i picked where one of the best ones he was saying.

r9 290x is better than the GTX 780 and costs about the same. Terrible Linux drivers, though they'll be adequate if you ever get into coding to compliment your design work.
