I've had a 4930K, and honestly I feel unless your running 3 way / 4 way sli there is really no bottleneck with a 4790K.

waiting until a 4k 120hz monitor is out and gpu power is able to push 120fps in sli @ 4k =) which is gonna be a while. I cannot play at anything below 120hz I am now spoiled it is so much smoother. I will pick up the rog swift 2560x1440p 144hz monitor when its out.

I listed them up top :) but I am getting 28 or so idle and 40-45 underload and that's with the voltage set at 1.3 per card. I highly recommend EK, amazing blocks.

Well for the Z97 chipset they're is only 1 board out and it really did not catch my eye.. they make amazing stuff the last board I had was the Rampage IV Black Edition and it was great. I have heard great things about this gigabyte board leading up to my purchase and it lives up to the hype. I also love the waterblocks for the chipset already installed.

I have listed a crossover, but I am actually using a 27" 1440p yamasaki overclocked to 120hz.

overclocked to 5.2 giggawatts, consumes so much energy it leaves you drained. FPS boost is fantastic though.

I have been building for about 10 years now and have owned just about every top end case these past few years (Enthoo Primo,750D,H440(mid range),450D)

This case is by far the best looking IMO the window is just gorgeous and it was a pleasure to work in. I think my favorite part is the clearance in ther back of the case to hide cables.. the first time I put it together before cable management it was a MESS behind there and the door shut with EASE. The only minor problem I ran into was finding where to mount the res as the 290x is a extremely long card so I had to drill holes in the mounting bracket as well as the case (easy!) I would recommend it to anyone.

I actually liked the look of the Noctua fans with the rgb led strip hitting it they looked nice.

I am getting tired of the red/black builds.. I am itching to do something different and new (to me) white / black or black / green may be next.

The Wifi card is amazing, I get full signal on the 5Ghz spectrum when I would only get 1 MAYBE 2 on my older wireless adapter.

They are set as exhaust! I believe in the instructions it actually states to set them as a intake for whatever reason? I've had about 3 of these closed loop coolers and always went with exhaust.

Audio sounds great, but these Z22 probably don't do it justice.. new headphones are next on my list.

Before I had these I had the reference version of the 290x.. at 100% they sounded like a leaf blower lol! These @ 100% are not even 1/4 as loud.

290x are designed to run at 95.. mine would run cooler if they didn't have a little extra voltage and a slight overclock.

I play at 2560x1440 @ 120hz and anything below 110-120 is unacceptable :)

Thanks for the suggestion! I was actually thinking about selling these and grabbing GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition when it is released.

Opinions don't bother me at all, its just there is hundreds of different ways a build could be done. I am 110% satisfied with this build if you look at my log's I have done a few different ones from a 4930k 3Way 780 to this and at the end of the day this is my fav build. No hard feelings.

Also, that rig you linked is amazing! Even if I had that kind of cash I don't think I can pull the trigger on a 10,000 rig.
