The motherboard I have chosen is supposed to go with an 'all-black' colour scheme. Plus, it has awesome features (some which I don't require now but nice to have), so I think I prefer it over the Gigabyte mobo. Why those ram as opposed to mine? Also, the 950 pro would be significantly faster than the 850 pro.

You can keep it; I thought you had a different motherboard.

Also, the 950 pro would be significantly faster than the 850 pro.

With the non M.2 version, you can get more storage at a much more reasonable price, but the 950 Pro will also work.

yeah true, that being said, I'm going to have two SSD's. One for OS/Apps (950 pro) and the other for data (850 pro).
Thanks for the suggestion.

Very nice build, I especially like the case.

If your look for some fans you can check out these. RGB and PWM.

the Cryorig A80 performs better and is much less expensive than the H115i.

Wow, I didn't even know they do AIO, and how did you come to that conclusion, I couldn't find any benchmarks anywhere. Anyway, I think I rather opt for a manufacturer that are well known for high quality liquid coolers.

simple, there are several reviews showing the A80 performance. and one review shows it best easily the H110i GTX. the H115i is the H110i GTX with color swap plates for the pump.

hmm, yes there does seem to be some data out there. However, I would rather hear more from varied people as this would be a much better anchor to base my decision on; at the moment there is VERY few reviews from users. Also, the performance difference is marginal. The h115i (h110i) has been well known for good performance according to MANY users.

you're gonna be waiting a long time then. the A80 is new and cryorig has a tiny fraction of corsair's market presence and mind share, even if they make better cooling products.

Im sure you have a HD right?

Nope, I don't require one as I'm going to have two SSD's. One for OS/Apps and the other for data.
