Hi there Overclockers!
I am starting a build soon and I was wondering if anyone could help me select some parts.

The colour scheme I'm trying to achieve is black and white. This will be inside a NZXT Phantom 820 (Gunmetal Grey). Since the case has the HUE lighting system built into it, the white is to make sure the colors of the lighting will be displayed as good as possible.

Now there is another difficulty, I am not sure wether I will be using a custom loop for watercooling the entire system, or the Corsair Hydro H100i and just air cool the gpu. So I made it into two different builds for this thread.




*Build one (Partially watercooled)

Parts currently selected:
-Corsair H100i
-Corsair AF120
-Corsair SP120
-i7 4770K
-Standard 200mm fans from NZXT
-Samsung 840 Evo 250GB SSD
-Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 3TB HDD

Parts that have to be selected (based on color scheme):
-NVidia Graphics card (2x GTX 770 or 1x GTX 780)
-PSU (750W or 850W)
-Motherboard Z87 (Preferably good for overclocking)

*Build two (Fully watercooled)

-Corsair AF120
-Corsair SP120
-i7 4770K
-Samsung 840 Evo 250GB SSD

Parts that have to be selected (based on color scheme):
-PSU (850W)
-NVidia Graphics Card ( 2x GTX 770 or 1x GTX 780
-Motherboard Z87 (Preferably very good for overclocking)
-Reservoir
-Pump
