Yet another build for judgement

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
G.Skill Sniper 8GB DDR3-2400MHz
INTEL CORE CPU i5-4670K
Gigabyte GA-Z87M-HD3
Gigabyte GeForce GTX770 2GB WindForce 3X OC
Samsung 128GB 840 Pro
Seasonic G-650 Gold
SILVERSTONE KL04B BLACK

Mainly the Box/Case/Chassis is what I'm still debating today. But anything goes, be relentless with any criticism.

I'm heavily debating this build for days now and this is the latest setup after nearly 12 hours of extra research and shuffling some things around (I mainly changed from soon-to-be-SLI to a slimmer setup (of a more "I'll wait for 14 nanometers before spending so much now" nature) of a more budget CPU and motherboard and no upgrading to SLI in the future (because I noticed the savings that way are suprisingly enormous). The PSU is naturally downsided from an earlier 850 but I also changed to Seasonic after careful research on ripple and efficiency reviews, and realizing Corsair isn't better than its OEMs. Someone had suggested to change the SSD to a Sandisk Extreme but I think that was incorrect since only the "II" model was better. I also changed the RAM to a slightly faster G.Skill with lower timings).

Why memory being first in the order of things you might think if you're too OCD. Well, due to respect in the theoretical history of computing: without memory, you can't compute anything, hence it's the first component actually required (though it's blurry lately of course since almost any sub-component has extra memory).

The box is Silverstone for now because I realized it's a quality and responsible company on these products (as opposed to others that may just stick their name on it) and it has the basic features I think I want, but I'm still undecided on that venue (mainly about size and whatever that means about everything else or whatever I may miss).

I've also noted to get a NOCTUA NH-D14 which is confirmed by many users here as good though I haven't researched it further than getting that main "poll" idea so I'm not sure if I miss something (e.g. new and refreshed models or competitors releasing new better models (on either air or all-in-one water).

So I guess it's perfect. My mission on earth is complete.
