Hi i was wondering what you guys thought of this build. This machine will be used mainly for gaming. I know it might be a little overkill but thats how i like it. I also would like to do a little overclocking but i am a little afraid of watercooling since i have never done it b4. And thats y i chose the v10 aircooler. I know it needs the bracket to fit the lga2011 socket. I also was wondering if i would have any height clearance issues with the ram i have chosen. Any advice would be appreciated.

I would go for the Noctua NH-D14 over watercooling to be honest.

Also, you don't need the 6GB card unless you are running like a zillion monitors.

Also, even if this is overkill, 1200W is way way too much. Just go for like 800 or 900.

well i was doing the 6gb card cause i plan on doing 3 monitors and last i read this was a good card to get and as for the psu i was over doing it cause of the issue i had with my current set up which made me go through 3 psu's before i got a 650 watt corsair psu. and for the cpu cooler would there be ram clearance issues with the Noctua NH-D14. i have read the v10 has some issues with certain ram sticks. and to answer budget issue its a little over $2300

It's way more than overkill, mate. For close to $1000, you're getting about 10% better performance in games than if you spend $350 for an i5 and a motherboard. Since basically no games are CPU bottlenecked with an i5, this is a complete waste of money that you could use on a second graphics card that WOULD actually give you better performance.

Or.... build a computer that'll max out any current game and play most future ones on high, and save your money to do it again a while later. Instead of a very very expensive, obsolete computer nobody wants in five years, you're always keeping up with the tech.
