[BUILD LOG] The Little Daddy - 350D - 4790k - 780ti

Hello everyone !

This is my first post here, and I'm glad because this build gonna be the most powerful I ever made, and my first water-cooled system!
The components I chose are quiet new so I need your advice about the flow of this build smile.gif

Here is the list!

Body part:

1 x ASUS Maximus VII Gene Intel Z97 mATX LGA1150 Motherboard
1 x Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0 GHz, Socket 1150, Devil's Canyon
2 x Crucial M550 256GB 2.5" SATA3 6GB/s SSD (CT256M550SSD1) - Raid 0
1 x EVGA GeForce GTX780Ti Superclocked ACX 3GB GDDR5 PCI-E3.0 (03G-P4-2884-KR)
1 x Corsair AX Series AX860i Digital 860W Modular Power Supply 80Plus Platinum
1 x Corsair CMD16GX3M2A1866C9 Dominator Platinum 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3-1866 CL9
1 x Corsair Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
1 x Corsair AF120 120mm Quiet Edition - Twin Pack

I am a bit concerned about the memory at 1866, Asus says : 1866(O.C.). Does it mean that I have to overclock the memory to get the motherboard support them ?

Case:
1 x Corsair Obsidian Series 350D Mini Tower Case w/ Window

Screen:
1x AOC G2460PG G-Sync 144Hz 1ms Gaming Monitor

I bought the watercooling kit from Corsair in order to wait for building my own !

Pictures are coming as soon as I get everything !

Thanks guys!

I'm not an expert when it comes to Raid 0 but I read an article on toms hardware where it showed 1 ssd gave better results as opposed to 2 in raid config.

Just something to think about.

as for the ram, O.C means the memory controller is overclocked when using 1600 MHz or faster memory. You will also need to set the specifications of your RAM manually in the BIOS.
