Around $2,000 - $2,500 is preferrable.

Just looking to build a stable/reliable computer that will handle day to day gaming, photoshop cs6 and video editing.

Will do some overclocking here and there when boredum sets in.

Did some research since the Switchtech H220 has been out for awhile. Product tested was okay results. Looks wise, didn't look too good. Tubes are sagging.

I have a bunch of good information for you. I think your first step to building it would be to figure out design and cable management, once you have that all pictured and figured out, be prepared for a few slight mishaps here and there, it happens to the best of us. Some important information about overclocking make sure all your stuff works out of the box at stock first. I would configure bios defaults to start with and become very acquainted with your manual. Something you can do to start is enter manual voltage and ram timings if you wish, or you can use profiles. Most boards have these features built in now. When you get everything installed and up and running, not sure what OS you want to use. You will want to run a program like intel burn test and prime 95 for stability. Also check for GPU stability using furmark or evga tools. I like precision x and evga OC. Once you get a feel for what your temps and standard setup is like then you can start figuring goals for overclocking. That chip should easily get 4.5 maybe more. There is much to consider when overclocking so this is a huge in depth conversation that is always ongoing. Also test your SSD using hd tune or crystal disk, make sure that is is performing correctly. Don't do this too much because you don't want massive read and writes to the drive constantly. Also do not defrag your ssd unless you are using windows 8 which has a optimize feature. Your setup looks very good though nice build list. The h100i is a great water cooler for a closed loop system. Will allow you a decent overclock in time. I am not sure what people opinion is on ram here, but 1600mhz is pretty standard for gaming and should be great for that, i'm not sure you will see a huge or gigantic improvement by using faster ram speeds , I would focus more on timings in my opinion.

i ran prime95 stress test for about an hour, temp wise at stock was an average 55 C* (live in Arizona, AC temp set at 76 degress). It didn't crash or anything like that.

Ran 3Dmark05, twice and didn't crash. Couldn't get numbers as it was just a DEMO (did not purchase)

Why do people always get the Corsair closed loop coolers?


Id rather spend $50 more and get a MUCH better custom loop.

For me for being a NOOB, good starting point. Maintenance free to. Once I get a better understanding on PC's, Overclocking, then I'll feel more comfortable to move up to a custom Water cooling.
