I posted this in another thread but go with a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme, it is a couple bucks less and proformce better than the H100i and H110 http://youtu.be/D0pj8omBF7w?t=3m17s If you can fit it or make it fit, if not go with h80i push and pull configuration.

Go for it bro! H100i is a great product and does the job right the first time.

Sorry for late response! Those would work just fine it your planning to O.C. As high as 4.5GHz-4.7GHz but if you're really planning to push your CPU I highly suggest adding as many GOOD case fans as you can. On the other hand, If you are planning to spend more than $250 on fans and a watercooler unit, save that money and invest in an EK Watercooling kit or similar. Here is a link: http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g30/c321/s1367/list/p1/Liquid_Cooling-Water_Cooling_Kits_-_Brands-Ek_Water_Cooling_Kits-Page1.html

The best part about this kit, you have to put it together yourself and when your rig continues to grow and gets stronger so can your cooling system by adding better pumps, larger radiator, and more.

Hi, heres my setup

i7 4770k 3.9GHz O.C to 4.5 Idle: 34c Load: 79c COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520 16G ram GTX 650ti boost 2G (not O.C) 64G SSD 500G WD Black 500W 80Plus PSU

Normally my temps stay around 45-58 degrees when using heavy CAD programs like Solidwork, 3dsMax, and Rhino. When I'm playing games it goes up about 57-68 degrees.

My advice to you; spend good money on a h100-h100i, H80-h80i or even a Noctua NH-D14 if your O.C. I plan to return my cooling unit and invest the extra 40 bucks for one of those. I hope this help you. Later!

I do agree with you. I'll most likely get a 780 or even a titan if $ allows. But for now, if a 650ti boost goes on sale in the future for around $100-130 might just have to buy it.

Nice build for the price! You might want to organize the wiring a little more. They seem to right in the way of the front inlet fans.

Thanks, I love it myself as well. I am thinking about installing two more fans making a total of ten fans. 2 top, 2 front, 2 side, 1 back, 1 bottom, 1 PSU, 1 GPU, oh I guess lets count the CPU. That's 12 fans can be run in this case. Pretty awesome!

I love simple and clean design so I had to get this. I paid only $45 for it. You are really going to enjoy it. The only problem I see with it is that the top two fan locations might be too close to the modo and installing a radiator like H100i with its fans attached will run into the modo. I have not tried it yet but it looks super close. Have fun building!!

Yeah, I figure I'll give into the 650ti Boost mainly for being affordable and because I've seem alright reviews on YouTube for running them in SLI. I really do have to buy a bigger PSU might have to return this one and add a extra $50 for 750w or 800w.

Thanks for the point! About the GPU, I was looking at a GTX 670 because I could benefit from the 1536 or so CUDA Cores when using 3dsMax/Vray to render. But my primary rendering software at the moment is only using the CPU to process images and to stay within a budget I copped out and went with a GPU that is still 2x faster than my laptop's and under $150. I do plan on continuing this build through upgrades so eventually the PSU and GPU will be replaced once I'm ready to drop another grand.
