  1. Instead of samsung 840 i would go for a HyperX 3K ssd 480gb.
  2. Are you sure you have a place to mount the radiator for that Corsair H100i?

    Looks like plenty of room on the top or even i can remove the drive cages because i can mount the ssd on the backside . RIght?
  4. why the formula over the hero? why 1866 memory instead of 2400? will 760 watts be enough to sli gtx 780 in the future?
  5. I'd get the AX860 if you plan on SLI in the future. I'd stick with the Hero, unless you like the plastic shroud for 100 bucks extra.

    Good build, you'll the Hero, Tridents and 4670K together - it's been a fav of my clients, built a half dozen of them, I went with the 477oK for mine ;) but am more into the heavy computing and need Hyper threading
