Looks cool ^^
Haven't got much to say. Modular power supplies are nice. c:
Interesting GPU though, the independently controlled fans are what caught me off guard. Mine has a couple of fans but they draw directly from the GPU's power (an 8 pin and 4 pin) and don't take up any slots on my controller. What kind of fan controller are you getting anyway?

I'm currently using the onboard fan controller on my case but I'm looking into buying an NZXT Sentry controller.

The amount of jelly in my blood right now is reaching dangerous levels.
But seriously, damm, that krait motherboard with the h100i cpu cooler slapped on makes me want to go throw out my 970a-g46.
Great build losib0ss.

Thx b0ss. I think the black and white theme will look nice when I'm done the build. I'll post pics when I'm done.

I'm hoping to hit 4.7 ghz. I'm praying to the based silicon industry gods for a nice chip.

>aesthetics

My PC hasn't even had a full case in years. Front panel is lame, better airflow without it.

Eh. If I'm going to show my pc to people I'd like it to look sorta nice. I'm into aesthetics anyways.

Know your feelings, pretty much the same T^T, I have a good build, but the CPU is shit and Sotrage is small, however I'm pretty sure i'm going to change everything inside it because I'm going to build ultimate gaming pc
