I most likely will upgrade to GTX 970s when I get the money. Best bang for your buck I've ever seen.

True it did have a faster response time, but I felt a little more size for your buck was appropriate. :P Thanks for the suggestion :D

I like it except the cooler seems a little ecstatic compared to my plans, I would probably go with the Hyper 212 again and put that cash plus the $25 leftover and get 16GB or ram for a nice price. I don't need a keyboard and mouse, and I felt the monitor too under-powered for the price. This is what I did to your list. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

I would love 2-3 monitors, other wise, I have the rest of peripherals covered.

My only problems with this build are the overpowered PSU, the overpriced case, and I would rather a hyper 212 for a cooler.

I would more rather an easily overclockable cpu and i have no preference AMD over Intel.

It all depends on what you plan on doing with the system. If you are gaming, I would suggest a 4790K ( http://pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80646i74790k ), If you are running a server or graphical design, then the CPU is good for the price. Your PSU is very overpowered compared to your computer build, you could get a cheaper fully modular PSU for $30 cheaper and still have enough power. Other than that, If you are rendering and making graphics you will want more, faster, or more and faster RAM.

You can effectively run all the fans on one 6 channel fan controller.

I wouldn't risk an overclock until you get a nice aftermarket CPU Cooler, either the 212 I mentioned above or the Corsair H100i would be good choices for that CPU

Why skimp on the CPU and instead get a 5960x?

The 900D can fit 4 fans on each side, 3 in the front, one on the back, and then 4 with the H100i on top. 17 fans. It is a monster.

I'd go quad SLI 980s on this beacuse better performance than the AMD cards.

Lay off on the SSDs, Get one 1TB SSD and several 3TB HDDs from Seagate for cheap.

You will want more paste, 2g isn't enough.

You skimp on RAM when you have all that?

I have a better wish build that is faster and more powerful :P http://pcpartpicker.com/user/TheAnonymousThomas/saved/HxCqqs

I'd get a Seagate 3TB Barracuda(http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seagate-internal-hard-drive-st3000dm001) for $96 if you can.

You WILL want a CPU cooler, and a great one for the moment is the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO(http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr2), it's $31 at Superbiiz.

For a case I would recommend the NZXT Source 210(http://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-s210002), it's $34 at Superbiiz.

You can skimp on the Power supply and get the Corsair 430W PSU(http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cx430) instead for $40 on Amazon.

Final thoughts, you're gonna want monitors, a keyboard, a mouse, and a headset as well. Personally, I believe you went overboard on the CPU and GFX card. Good luck!
