This is the v2 of the build I posted a few days ago. It has been redefined in a lot of areas.
I would appreciate your guys feedback as I plan to start buying parts tonight and want to know your opinions on things.
CPU Cooler: Fairly set. Did some research and this that this will be the ideal water-cooling solution for my build but if you guys think otherwise, let me know.
Thermal Compound: Set.
Motherboard: Fairly set. For the price and what this motherboard can achieve, I'm very excited about it. Especially the ability to OC it much easier using the software.
Storage: Fairly set. I really want an m.2 SSD and this was one of the few compatible with my motherboard. Expensive but I think it'll be worth it.
Video Card: Fairly set. If there are better 970's that you think are more viable. By all means, let me know.
Power Supply: Advice needed. This enough power for up to 3 970's potentially in the future? Taking into account I will be overclocking everything. 970's have fairly low power consumption though which is why I think this should manage it.
Optical Drive: Flexible.
Operating System: Set.
Monitor: Advice needed. 4k or this? I went for this because I mostly game and sometimes play FPS, also my SLI config would allow me to push for a surround setup in future with 2 more Swift ROGs. Don't think I'd ever have more than one screen if I went with 4k.
