This system was built for my son 6 months ago or so. We already had the main components, but when I finished my S8S he really liked the green coolant and he asked if we could do yellow in his. So, here we are. There is a GTX 760 in there now and an overclocked G3258. It runs anything he plays (World of Tanks) just fine at 1080p. I seriously considered getting a GTX 970, but didn't see the point now. So, I bought the EK block for the EVGA ACX version 970's, which fits this GTX 760. I'll pick up a GTX 970 down the road and throw it in there to replace the GTX 760. It seemed like the most logical thing to do. Anyways, a pretty simple build, that runs very quietly! I hope you all enjoy.
Ok. ok. ok
So, since some of don't like my Pentium G3258 choice, I must remind you that I had this CPU already. Why should I upgrade it. It's clocked to 4.5GHz and runs WOT just fine. All he does is surf the internet, us MS Office and play WOT. I'm not sure why everybody thinks this is a "waste of money". All I have to do if throw a 4690k in there later if I want. Nothing else needs to change. But again, why would I do that if this runs everything just fine? The cost of water cooling is the cost of water cooling. :)
