Gday again shankyaah.

That's a pretty full on build.

​Can you tell us if it is a gaming rig, or will you be using it for Photo/video/music editing, a workstation rig?

Overal build is good, but a few observations.

 

Consider a different case.

Adding 6 fans, $50. case $95, with shipping, = $145, so you could buy a top end one.

It has very poor cable management forcing you to run most cable exposed across the MB, pretty ugly to see, negating that wonderful side window.    

It may have poor GPU cooling, even when adding extra fans.

Can only install 2 HDDs.   Depending on software used, i.e. Adobe products, CAD etc, you may need to install 4 or more HDDs.

SSD.   Review, > http://www.hardwarez.../conclusion-185

I would consider the Samsung 750 EVO 500GB, > http://www.guru3d.co..._review,19.html

If you do not intend using duel GPUs, a quality 550 watt PSU will be more than enough for the system even when adding more drive and fans.

All right! Thank you for this!

Gday.

Not heard back from you for a while!!   If you built a system, what parts did you use and how is the performance?   An update would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.
