What would you change?



Other Thoughts:

Get a 3930k instead of the 3970x

PSU might be overkill

And get a proper water cooling setup.

From what I can tell, its only about a 2% performance increase.

No idea how you spent 2500 to cool JUST a cpu.

4 Loops. It was such a pain in the ass. Ended up with another 3770k & put a h100i on it. So much easier, and better temps. I was sooo depressed, wanted to cry.

Get a 3930k, from the money saved put a real loop in the 900D whats the point of getting such a crazy case when you can't utilize what it was designed for?
