Some of them not all of them

You cant recommend brands
No more than you.

RAM: GSkill RipjawsX 2x4GB DDR 1866mhz
HDD: WD 1TB Caviar Blue HDD
GPU: Sapphire R9 290 tri-x 4GB DDR5
PSU: Seasonic S12 II 620W PSU
Chasis: CM Storm Stryker
Cooler: Corsair Hydro H100i Liquid Cooling
SSD: Plextor M5S 128GB SSD

How's it? This build is for my cousin I"ve had an AMD build now I decide to go for intel.. Is it going to last for at least 6 years? To play all of the latest game?

Any advise or changes? I think the motherboard & PSU could change to other or is it fine as it is ?

get this case instead, solid steel, more durable
http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=6_111&item_id=063934

and get this cpu cooler instead, corsair liquid coolers are okay, nzxt is better but i would stick to a beefy air cooler, dont have to worry about radiator/pump problems after the 2 year warranty...
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608018

your ram is fine, it fits the noctua dh14, in case you're wondering
http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=compatibility_ram_gen&products_id=34&lng=en

if you want to spend more money, i would just buy a 900D case, thats the best supertower ever made, its big and heavy though but shes a beast,
or buy a mini tower like the 250D
not sure if sapphire trix will fit or the noctua cooler though

i have a hybrid case and i kinda wish i got the mini cases instead but thats just me wink.gif

Elitist has nothing to do with knowing whats good and bad and whats the best unit for the money

All it takes is a little time and effort and anyone can do what i do its not hard

You can call it whatever you like if someone bought a flawed unit dont they deserve to know about that flaw

Or that they can get something better for the same money or less

Or do you prefer that i dont say anything and when they get problems they get angry because someone that knew did not tell them anything

Or they could have gotten a better unit for the same money

I was trying to help you and inform you and insted you get upset

Whatever

For everyone saying that AIO water cooling is a hassle, its actually less of a hassle then a large air cooler. With the air cooler, first off you gotta try and get a screwdriver to those mounting brackets. Second, you gotta make sure the ram isnt going to get in the way of the fans (it will). Third, a good 120mm AIO unit will good better then most 2-fan 140mm air coolers. With the AIO solution, you mount the cpu block, which is simple, nothing gets in the way, then mount the rad and fan in the applicable space. Rarely do you have to worry about hardware dependencies (unless you have certain cases).

But yeah I thought we already finalized his build before this?

Motherboard, the original board you picked was good, but I think I read somewhere you switched to the Extreme 6, which is a beast. You wont have to worry about it with that board.

If you do decide to get the Noctua OP, make sure you have ultra low profile ram, otherwise it wont fit. Also make sure your case is wide enough for the cooler, I've run into this problem before where the cooler doesn't fit.

Suggestions are good. Take them for what they are worth, suggestions with possible good backing. If you want to spend the time to confirm the suggestion, then do so. Otherwise, either use it or simply ignore it. No reason to get jimmies rustled.

While I don't question the durability of that case (I've never seen one so I can't comment on it), I have a Stryker and in my opinion it's quite solid. Basically the only plastic parts to worry about are the front and top panels, the rest of the case is steel (except for the HDD brackets).
