Is this good for streaming and recording with 120fps+? I like the red theme and I want to put the gpus under water http://pcpartpicker.com/p/7Z7JmG

Why use a z87 mobo when the z97 equivalent is out and cheaper? Switched the the z97 version

Changed the kraken's because honestly they're overpriced. The h75 will perform just as well on GPUs for keeping thermals under control while getting the highest possible overclocks. Hell, you could use h55s.

Changed the RAM to a slower kit because the increased ram speed isn't worth it.

Changed the hard drive because hybrid drives are only worth it as OS drives (even then you're probably better off getting a separate SSD for it).

Changed the graphics cards because honestly 780TIs aren't worth it in any budget. You could easily add a third 290x to this build and still keep it cheaper than your original.

Changed the fans. Now there's actually TWO different sets of recommendations for the fans. You could either go the route of the eLoops in red that I linked from Aquatuning (custom part). I use the normal version of these fans and even on max rpm they aren't very noticeable and keep things very cool. The other option is the new aerocool ds series which has been getting really good views around the net. I chose 7 fans for either configuration assuming 4 for the clcs (2 on h100i, one each for the h75s) and the other 3 as case fans.

Upped the power supply to 1300w just because I'd rather play it safe when overclocking comes into play you'll be getting awfully close to 1000w.

EDIT: Realized I accidentally removed the second monitor, not a big deal.
