Let me know what you think of my first home built rig. I actually built it over the summer, but was waiting to get my hands on the 970 before I called it complete...for now.

CPU: i7-4770K running as high as 4.5 ghz when I feel like it, but usually clocked to about 4.0 ghz
Cooling: Corsair H110 Water Cooling kit
Motherboard: MSI Z97 Gaming 7
Memory: 32gb G Skill Trident X @ 1600 mhz
Graphics: MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G with 4 GB GDDR5
Storage: 2X Samsung EVO 840 250 gb ssds in raid 0, Seagate Barracuda 1.5 TB (running backups of the RAID), Samsung 4 tb External
Power: Corsair HX850
Case: Cooler Master Cosmos SE

I made a couple case mods to hide the sides of the blu-ray drive and multi-card reader as well as the power on the bottom. I also modded the case slightly to mount 2 Corsair AF140QE fans on the front as opposed to the 2 120mm fans with which it came. I replaced the fans on the radiator at the top with Corsair lighted fans and added a lighted fan to the back as well as an SP120 to the bottom of the case. I also added memory fans.
Here is my passmark score with the PC only clocked at 4.0 ghz.
