Hi! Welcome to the forums.
Woah, monster machine you got there. Might I ask what this is for? I assume it's a gaming rig and my critique is what that in mind.
-Save $800 and get the i5-2500k. Performs just as well as needed in games, the 3960k is obscenely expensive.
-The Corsair 800D is a pretty closed off case, designed for enthusiast water cooling loops. Look for something a little more open air, Like the HAF X or Thermaltake Level 10GT.
-That CPU cooler isn't real good. It's a pseudo water cooler, since it only cools the CPU. If you're gonna watercool, I'd go the whole 9 yards and get some waterblocks on those video cards.
-You've got 2 CPU coolers. The H100 and the Hyper 212. I suggest a good air cooler, like the Noctua DH-14 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Cheaper, quieter and cooler than the H100.
-2 7970's? What resolution do you plan on playing at? Your monitors suggest 1920x1080p, for which a pair of 7970's is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY overkill. One would be kickass, let alone two.
-You don't need 32GB of ram for gaming. No way in hell. No way. Get a decent 8GB or 16GB kit. 8GB is about double what you need, don't even think about getting 32GB if you're gaming.
-That PSU isn't really good. Get a decent 850w, something from Corsair or Seasonic maybe. The HX 850 is very good, as are all Seasonic PSU's.
-Sound card isn't needed really unless you have a killer set of cans. I'm talking $300+. Onboard is actually quite good, I doubt you'd be able to notice the difference easily.
Well, that's all for now Please tell me what this system is for, I'm very intrigued now.
That rig would be crazy but honestly seems like a complete waist of money that your just tossing out the window, especially since this is your first build. If i bought that i know i would regret it, but maybe your alot richer than me.
I5k is great for gaming no need to spend 1k on a cpu. So save yourself $800 like striker said.
7970 is top of the line, by the time you would even need a second one there would be a whole different series. If anything buy one, then by the time you need another to sli then buy it for half price.
dude if i were u and had moolah up the wazzoo id wait for 7990 and get only one thing.................. and that one most important thing would be............ it would be......................... ABSOLUTLEY POSITIVLEY 10000000000 PERCENT EEVVEERRYYTTHHIINNGG
