The PSU is low quality. Change it for an XFX650.
What are the uses of this machine going to be?

Change the PSU as I stated. Also a single 780 is not enough to max games across three 1080p monitors. You would need two.

Sorry, mis typed there, i meant a single 24 inch asus 144 hz monitor and 2 lower quality monitors for webpages and stuff while i game on the single. And i can't seem to find the XFX anywhere? Mind explaining how the 750 is not quality?

Nothing really. He just included a liquid cooler you don't need.

the only better thing is really the PSU.

The case is a bit better alot.

I strongly recommend windows 8.1

The cpu, mobo and psu are better. The gpu is as good but cheaper. The h100i is recommended for an i7. CM 212 evo are OK for i5.

I do not recommend the h100i for anything as a better air cooler can be had for less money, and will be quieter.

The CPU is the Devil's canyon refresh so it is "better" in the sense that thermally it is better for overclocking, but performance wise there is no difference. I agree that the 4790k is the way to go.
