Constructive Criticism appreciated. Plans to eventually do multi QHD/UHD monitors. Unsure of what else is required for full loop. 1TB SSD preferable to HDD, less power consumption and no playing with drive paths.

Just curious: Have you considered the Phanteks Enthoo Pro case (or any of the Enthoo series)? It has a lot of features designed for custom water cooling. I just got one recently as I slowly get together parts for a custom water cooling case as well. While I haven't worked with that part of it yet, I can tell you that I can't imagine needing more features and the Pro version would save you $40, which might not be much on your budget but it still might be nice to have. Cable management is a breeze in this thing.

I hadn't considered it. I'll take another look at it though. I know the corsair cases pretty well, and they're very well designed.

Where did you get a $111 4790k from?

Direct from Intel because I work for a retailer.

Wow..! Is it possible for me to get that for the same price or is it only exclusive to Intel workers?

Do you work for a retailer such as Best Buy or MicroCenter?

I do not, but I could ask around if any of my friends do. Is it just BestBuy and MicroCenter? Which other retailers have these discounts for its workers?

Major electronic retailers. They'd have to complete e-learnings on the Intel Reatial Edge site and confirm their employment status in order to qualify for the sale. However, the sales only occur twice per year, and they're limited to one per employee.
