After 5 years my current PC just died a couple of weeks ago and I need another PC that can stand up to another 4-5 years of use without having any issues. This is what I have so far after weeks of research but I am not that confident with the build which is why any feedback would be appreciated.
The first build is a watercooled build http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/zaraki005/saved/jDhG3C
The main reason for watercooling is I got the impression that the GFX cards would have a better lifetime compared to air cooled versions.
The alternative route is the second build http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/zaraki005/saved/zDMmP6
Which also utilizes the watercooled option but an AIO solution rather than a custom loop, However I have read reviews about problems with the dual r9 295x2 having graphics issues due to bad drivers with games and demanding CAD software. However bare in mind I do not work heavily on this computer as its my home PC I only ever use it for work every once in a while when I bring work back home. My home PC is mainly for recreational use like games, movies and surfing.
Again any feedback no matter how big or small the changes that can be made will be greatly appreciated.
