So I was just thinking last week that I should make a custom PC on PCPartPicker and just fool around but it got serious :p And I need some opinions on this build and if I did this right or if I should change something... I just want the most badass PC so when my friends come over they get jealous xD (Not required but will help ;) )

Why the last, last gen CPU? Also I would suggest waiting for the x99 platform in September and the 800 series of GPU's from NVIDIA.

Can you enlighten me with some advantages of the x99 platform?

BTW I am an AMD user so this would be my first Intel build and I don't know much about Intel :p

i prefer the NZXT kraken x61 to the crsair h100i its quieter just has a little more advanced software that is more confusing to some.
