This is a build for a friend's wedding gift from his fiancée. I planned this a few months back and slowly picked up the parts. I honestly didn't realize I picked the exact same parts for the build that some reviewers also used in their builds... great minds I suppose? The RAM seems like an odd choice, but I had a single 8GB dimm NIB still from a previous promo and I had no idea what to do with it, so I just bought another single 8GB dimm and paired it. The PSU is also overkill I know, however the G2 from EVGA based on SuperFLOWER is a SUPERB PSU at it's price, and with all the extra wattage it will run cool and make use of the ECO mode (silent fan) more. I also delidded the CPU and used Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra between die and IHT, then applied MX4 for waterblock/pump to IHT.
I just found out that I will be holding on to it for a little while before it's gifted, so I plan on making new cables from scratch for the PSU 24pin, CPU, and VGA so they look a little better.
