Description

I posted this very late, And this is not the original build, it originally did not feature any of the NZXT products that's here, it had a corsair 300r windowed, and didn't have any watercoolers, every cooler was stock.

So here it is, I should of posted this a long time ago, but i just got around to doing it, i will also post my steambox build that i did Christmas 2014 later once i get the r9 300 series gpu. I don't have much to say about this build, except a few warnings.

Do not! buy this PSU i chose, Unless your willing to replace it every 9 months, it failed on me 9 months after the build was bought, and its about to fail again, 9 months after replacing it, so be warned. I would not buy the 64gb ssd i bought, this was recycled from another build that i didn't need a SSD in anymore and is used for a hackintosh OS. Don't go with the kraken g10 i have either if your a 700 series user, The cooler works perfectly fine for the GPU, but the vram and such dont cool very well, I would recommend corsair's n780 bracket if your watercooling your 7xx card.

And now recommendations. O.M.G. This x61 cooler is AMAZING!, It keeps my cpu underload at less that 60C, if you are looking at 280mm coolers, this is the one to go with. The case, Oh my god the case, The h440 looks amazing sitting on my desk next to me, it is probably the best case i have ever owned, The airflow is less than exceptional but in terms of looks, is amazing, and it can fit quite a bit of hardware, be careful though, there are no optical bay drives.

Thanks for stopping by my part list, Have a good day! -UWillParish

Its fine, the VRAM needs more cooling, but it still works better than stock, lol

Awesome! I have an EVGA GTX 760 SC open air, and live in a very hot area. I'm usually floating around 80C when gaming; but it's gonna get a lot hotter here soon <___<

Case is an absolute dime. Good choice there. Great build overall.

Nice build! And dang that's a powerful cooler! I believe that the Kraken X61 from NZXT and the Nepton 280L from Cooler Master are the absolute kings of water cooling as of now. Also, that's too bad about the PSU. Have you considered Corsair or EVGA for your next replacement unit?

I already decided on a evga one, especially because of their warranty, I already have 1 in my steambox
