  1. You have alot of overkill parts but their within budget so...
    Don't be cheap, get a blu ray burner
    Dump the audio,motherboard is enough.
    Get the seasonic
    Get a different ups
    get a different ssd http://newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148527
    Get a gtx670 or get a 690. 680 is poor value.
    Get a Bitfenix Colossus Venom. Comes with lights,looks cooler, still performs,is cheaper,is lighter but not in a bad way.
    If you need help with assembly you probably don't want water cooling. The case I mentioned has led fans to go with it. Put them all. It also has fan speed and light management switches.
  2. Thanks! I think im going to keep my case and the SSD tho :)
  3. It's your cash. I'd get APC personally for the ups. Just because something is more expensive doesn't make it better. Good luck though, and get a proper monitor please.
  4. I already have a monitor for my computer :)
  5. what about graphics card? can you get a 690 with the extra cash? It's the fastest there is and better than 2× 680 in sli.
  6. Best answer
    Damn, i was waiting for someone to ask for a water cooled build!

    Dont worry bro, 4k? i got you covered!

    buy this: CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor ($559.99 @ NCIX US)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 EATX LGA2011 Motherboard ($308.94 @ Newegg)
    Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($119.99 @ Newegg)
    Storage: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($89.99 @ Newegg)
    Storage: OCZ Vertex 4 256GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($189.99 @ Newegg)
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card (3-Way SLI) ($369.99 @ Newegg)
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card (3-Way SLI) ($369.99 @ Newegg)
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card (3-Way SLI) ($369.99 @ Newegg)
    Case: NZXT Switch 810 (Black) ATX Full Tower Case ($179.99 @ Amazon)
    Power Supply: SeaSonic 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($187.00 @ Newegg)
    Total: $2745.86

    That leaves me with 1254.14$ for the WC system...

    now the WC stuff...

    420mm radiator.

    240mm radiator

    10x compression fittings

    3x sli fittings

    pump & reservoir

    10-15ft of tubing

    CPU block

    3x GPU blocks

    4x 140mm fans

    2x 120mm fans

    thermal paste

    Ecocide or biocide (only 2 drops)

    2xLighting

    If you set up everything right your case will look like this but blue



    What you are about to see is a little bit embarrassing for me but at least its clear.



    that's a diagram of how the WC kit is connected.... i know, a 5year old kid knows how to use paint better than me... :(
  7. nice. That rig is awesome :) As always.

    HAha WOW!!!! Thank You for the time putting all of that together! Now how would I put together the custom water cooling stuff? I know the Rasa 360 Extreme comes with mostly everything and it's pretty easy to put together.

    Its really easy--> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EInMVjmzDZE <--- that video is kinda outdated but it will help you a lot... BTW, use ONLY distilled water...not that crap they use in that video.

    If that's it then pick a best answer and close this thread.

    Edit: this will help too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QllNAdZPcQ&feature=related
