CPU+Motherboard your choice but for Case a 932 ok would not recommend it but not bad as for H100 i would say go with a XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit 117.21$ i would rather suggest you a Phantom and the Rasa RS240 and once again i m asking you OP whats the total budget your have in your mind or should i say pocket wink.gif
Hope that helped thumb.gif

Thread Starter 
my budget is $1400. As for the water cooling kit, how much more efficient will that be compared to the H100, would the trouble of maintaining the system be greater than the benefits of the water cooling kit? Im kind of new to the whole water cooling biggrin.gif

If the money is there a custom loop will pretty much always out-perform closed loop WC solutions. Do your reading and see if you are comfortable with all the things that come with going the WC route.

Things I would change:

Motherboard - Since you were looking at getting 850W+ PSU, you probably want to run a dual GPU configuration of some sort down the road. The mATX board is going to choke one of your GPU simply because there isn't enough spacing. Spring for an alternate Z68 board from whatever manufacturer you fancy that's ATX.

PSU - You really don't need anything 850W or higher unless you are planning on running dual GPU in the GTX 580 area with heavy OC.

HDD - You are going to want a 1TB performance drive of sorts for games that don't benefit as much from the snappy loading speed of the SSD. This is merely a preference and by no means required.

the H1oo is a closed Loop where as the the RS240 is a custom loop
you can add up components like the GPU, Motherboard and the RAM in the loop and add multiple Radiators to achieve a cooler PC were else in the H1oo you can only cool the CPU alone and cannot add any more components rolleyes.gif
and when it comes to setup and maintenance i admit the RS240 is more tuff to setup and you got to clean it once a year atleast but i would suggest 2 times flush a year is recommended redface.gif

That 600W PSU will run a ~320W TDP GPU with ease

u can overclock the CPU if using a 250W GPU

Use ur current GPU

& upgrade to Maxwell next year..

P.S - Single GPU is recommended on that mobo..

as both slots don't run at PCI Express x16 3.0 (x16,x16)

even on Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H ..running 2 GPU's is of no use..
