Absolutely love this computer and all the parts in it. The only thing I'm going to change is the GPU. When I build my wife rig she's going to get this one and I will get a 1080 version of this one. Just a little info for this AIO cooler. If your mounting in the front you'll have to remove the bottom plate where the HDD's are located. Otherwise it won't fit at all without drilling your own holes.

This chip is an absolute best. I came from the AMD FX-9590 to this and OMG this thing is awesome. Super smooth with plenty of power for anything I could possibly want to do. I used the mobo overclocker and it clocked it to 4.8GHz without any trouble. If your really good at overclocking I'm sure you can break 5GHz without trying.
To start this cooler is absolutly wonderful. The waterblock and tubes are incredibly well put together. Highly recommend this to anyone looking at getting a solid AiO cooler. There are only a couple things I have a problem with. The RGB lighting in the pump looks great on the logo but the ring that goes around it disappoints me. Instead of having a seamless transition for colors, it have a block look when its rotating colors. The stock fans that came with it haven't shown me any reason to doubt them. One thing that I wasn't a very big fan of the preloaded profiles that came with the software. I created my own profile for the fans so they have a more gently step-up compared to their silent profile. Other than those small things it's a wonderful cooler.
I'm gonna be honest I really only bought this board because of the look, it's a wonderful board none the less. Unfortunately I don't use all the features on it but it is a easy board to hook everything into and looks great too.
Extremely power card and quiet at the same time. The software used to overclock it is very easy to set up and get working. Just make sure you have it set to turn on everytime you power on or just make sure to manually turn it on when you power on. One thing I really like is that its very very quiet even at max power. It has little to no problem pushing all of the Triple A games out at max preset settings. I highly recommend this GPU for anyone looking to replace an old card.
This case is absolutely beautiful for putting a custom build in. The screws holding the 2 tempered glass side panels on are very strong and secure feeling. They have very good rubber grommets on them to make sure there is no metal on glass contact when tightening them down. One thing I'm not a big fan of is the fact you can't put fans on the outside of the sliding rail on the top of the cage. For me that sliding rail didn't make much sense because I didn't use it but for someone it's probably a nice feature. When it comes to mounting a rad in the front of the case I was rather bothered that I had to remove not only the plate covering the hard drives but that I also had to remove the mounting hardware in all. So after its done you can't mount your hard drives in the front because of that. It would of been nice for there to be different mounting hole to put the rad up higher in the front but oh well. The basement only partly covering the power supply is a nice touch in my opinion. Be very careful when it comes to doing cable management. when it comes to doing management do it as you go. DO NOT wait till the end and just manage it then, you'll be hating life. Once it's all said and done, after its all built and put on its pedestal this thing is gorgeous to look at. Tempered glass is beautiful to look at especially when you have a little led lighting in it.
It's completely overkill for this build I'm fully aware of it, but YOLO MOFOS. I happened to buy it for 185 bucks and couldn't pass that up. Being able to have something that powers anything I could ever have and not have a fan turn on is kinda what I wanted.
