    well how much do you plan to overclock it ? might not be necessary to have liquid cooling if you just want a nice bump to like 4ghz(no game benefits beyond this ghz and the higher ghz you go the shorter lifespan of the cpu) could use 212 evo for $30 also i would change the power supply to evga g2 850 because you want some extra room left over as far as wattage and this is the best power supply you can buy currently with 10 year warranty. changed case to 200r there is no need to get expensive computer case and with the money saved on cooler and case you can get gtx 780 as that would surely provide way more benefits in games than expensive looking case and unnecessary cooling potential on cpu.

    Here is what i suggest

  3. Thanks for the posts guys. I definitely might switch out the case and the closed loop cooler to an air one to upgrade the 770 to a 780.
