Wow getting lots of replies
Oh wow I really like the look of that NZXT switch 810. Definitely will have to put that down on my list of possibles
@vaporizer I've actually been looking through a lot of that stuff already and it's so damn hard to choose a case when everyone is always building such beautiful systems in them all
When I start my build log I might ask to have the thread moved to the build log section for convenience, who knows!
Just a random change of mind here, but I have only really though about a colour scheme recently. Green is by far my prefered choice for this build, because it's my favorite colour, and I don't see it very often in computer builds (usually red/orange/white/black). I know I can spraypaint the Corsair SP fan rings with green spray paint, I can get/make green and black sleeved cables for the PSU, but I was thinking the ROG red/black would clash a lot with green. What are peoples thoughts on the Gigabyte G1 sniper series of boards (particularly the G1 Sniper 5)? I know their green and have a buttload of features, and the built in sound card looks like a nice option, though I could always buy an after market sound card.
I have also thought about what are the best ways to build this system. My initial thoughts were to get the parts listed above, have one loop for the GPU and CPU through various radiators and then wait maybe 6 months, when I am going to put in fresh water and maybe change the tubes if they're cloudy. By that time I'd be able to get a second/third 780, and watercool the GPU and RAM (possibly, I know it's almost entirely asthetics but I like how it looks) in one loop and the CPU, MOSFETS/north/south bridge in a second loop.
I was wonder if people think it would be better to do the build this way, or if waiting another 2 months to start the build, until I can afford 2 more 780s and 3 new screens for a surround gaming rig.
Thanks for all the input guys! I'll definitely have a well documented project log either way
