Good News Everyone!!!!, I decided to upgrade my first build to is almost a year old now.
CPU: I choose the 4770k because at the time of buying it, it was the best cpu at that time excluding of course the LGA 2011 processors. I dont really use the hyper threading abilities that much yet but I hope to in the future. It made the most sense to buy since it was only 50 buck more than the i5 and I just wanted to max things out.
RAM:I bought the ram pretty much for the good looks and it does look good!!! Also I chose 16gb so that if I want/need to in the future I can max out the memory without having to remove any sticks.
Motherboard: I bought this board because it was very durable and has an amazing 5 year warranty. Also it look pretty good with the thermal armor, as well as I like that it came with a bunch of dust covers to protect the ports.
GPU: At the time I was deciding between the 780 and 780ti, at the end I saw that it didn't make sense to spend an extra 200 for 10fps. I was able to sale some books as well and got it for a really cheap price. The 2nd 780 was added when the 900 series card came out since it was being sold cheap on newegg.
PSU:I chose the AX860 because I knew that I wanted to SLI one day. It also has a good rating and certified to work well with haswell cpus.
Storage:I have an 840 pro which was the fastest ssd at the time of purchasing from Samsung, it is used for holding my most used programs as well for faster boot times. The WD green is to store downloads, music and videos. The WD black I wanted to keep as free as possible, I use it to store programs as well that are just programs were having them on a ssd would change much, so a bunch of my programs use this drive.
Case:When I bought the Define R4 cause I liked its smaller size and its sound dampening features. I also liked how it had to door to hide the optical drive and anything else I would put in a 5.25 inch bay. The case is very simple and clean without having the feel that it was cheaply built.
Watercooling: Before I did my custom loop I had a h100i cooling my chip. It was very good at the job it did and but I wanted to take on the task of WC my pc. This is my first time doing a custom loop and it would by pretty good. It was harder than it would have been as compared to if I choose to use flexible tubing but I like the look of acrylic and I didnt want to take the easy way out knowing that I would want to change the tubing and wasting money buying new fittings and whatnot. I plan to use the same parts whenever I decide to go bigger and better but I didnt want to wait till that came along. So I went ahead and tried my luck on this project. I had to modify and cut a piece of the case out so that the pump and reservoir could fit nicely.
Extra Notes: I looked around the net and I saw no one else with a build like this(putting acrylic tubing in a fractal define). So it pushed me even more to make it happen while also making it look really clean.
Hope you enjoyed reading this little info about my upgraded build. To see my first original build and my thoughts at the time when I did it you can following this link and see a before and after. Thanks!! http://pcpartpicker.com/b/Tb99TW
