Okay, I did my research and I put together this build. I'm looking for any input on what to add and whats not okay to have.
I plan on overclocking by the way. I want to put in a water cooling system and water block inside my case but I need some help and suggestions on how to do so and where to find and which is better.
Also I need a monitor any suggestion that would be great for my build?
Do I need a sound card?
I watched a review on the Asus Z97-A they were showing that I can setup profiles for the fan speeds for each exe I'm running so would that make a fan controller obsolete?
Also did I pick the right SSD?

This build is for mainly gaming maybe with a little video/photoshop editing for my Youtube channel.

How could it possibly be best bang for the buck, when the performance is identical, but costs $200 more? lol that is literally the exact opposite of best bang for the buck.

You tried to hard saving money for him, and ended getting really cheap and sucky things like that CPU cooler, id rather have the stock cooler then buy that. also with that saved money you could have bought a better PSU and a better GPU, and also a better cooler like a 212 Evo.

You really dont need a sound card unless your gaming on like 5.1 channel surround sound, As for the fan contoller, it be better to get one cuz the software dont always work right, and yes the SSD is perfect,

And the monitor, this a pretty good monitor http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vs247hp

Also after telling me you have $2000 budget here a new and improved build

Custom built water cooling requires a lot of time, a lot money as well. In all honesty, ive never tried water cooling before cuz of the fear that i could damage my components (Im Clumsy lol), so yea I dont know exactly what parts are needed to build your own water cooling system. and the case you picked is fine, i just chose a different cuz of the price.

Yes the Corsair H100i is a ready to installed water cooling system, and it comes with everything you need, such as the already pasted thermal paste, and the water block, which i think lights up when its being used (looks kind of cool). Now if you want to get better overclock speeds, you can get better fans and changed it with stock ones, you can all do a push-pull combination with the radiator for the best performance.

What about water coolers and water blocks can you give me a run down on good kits and I still kinda want my case I picked just because its simple. Like i want to find something like the ones on this site http://www.aquatuning.us/index.php or does it not matter?


Custom built water cooling requires a lot of time, a lot money as well. In all honesty, ive never tried water cooling before cuz of the fear that i could damage my components (Im Clumsy lol), so yea I dont know exactly what parts are needed to build your own water cooling system. and the case you picked is fine, i just chose a different cuz of the price.


So the Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler is a ready to install water cooler? what about water blocks do you know anything about those that you recommend?


Yes the Corsair H100i is a ready to installed water cooling system, and it comes with everything you need, such as the already pasted thermal paste, and the water block, which i think lights up when its being used (looks kind of cool). Now if you want to get better overclock speeds, you can get better fans and changed it with stock ones, you can all do a push-pull combination with the radiator for the best performance. Heres an unboxing video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8frELMe7Xk


wait wait wait so you're telling me that the Corsair H100i comes with the water block and radiator? Are the Noctua NF-A14 fans good for this? I hear those are good and quiet but I'm all ears if you have better info.

You really dont need a sound card unless your gaming on like 5.1 channel surround sound, As for the fan contoller, it be better to get one cuz the software dont always work right, and yes the SSD is perfect,

And the monitor, this a pretty good monitor http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vs247hp

Also after telling me you have $2000 budget here a new and improved build
