Currant parts Paid:
ASRock Z97 EXTREME6 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Corsair Air 540 ATX Mid Tower Case
SeaSonic X Series 850W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
LG GH24NSB0 DVD/CD Writer
Razer DeathAdder 2013 Wired Optical Mouse

So the issue I have been debating is what cpu cooling to get. Deciding if I should get
the h100i and overclock to 4.4 or buy Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler and not overclock. Plan on streaming and playing all types of games along with csgo. Any cooling you recommended over both? I doubt I would even need 2 overclock with this setup ha

Parts left to buy:
x2 Asus Radeon R9 290X 4GB DirectCU II Video Card
Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit)
Asus VG248QE 144Hz 24.0" Monitor
Corsair Vengeance K70 Wired Gaming Keyboard
Razer Goliathus 2014 Large SPEED
Sennheiser PC 360

If you see any cheap deals let me know... :)


I have a few issues connecting the case, power supply and mobo together. Is it just me or they made it overly complicated ha. If anyone has detailed guides on these parts let me know. Thank you for all advice and help. Greatly appreciated

If you already have Windows 7, not really. But if you are buying a new OS, I'd give Windows 8 a go. It doesn't exactly make your performance jump up, but it does have a few things on the OS side that I think are nifty. Also contrary to what the haters want you to think, 99.9% of your time will be spent on the desktop.

As for wiring everything up... The PSU has unique plugs. You can't "misplug" something, though you might confuse the CPU EPS +12V plug with an 8-pin PCI-Express plug. But yeah, you can't misplug something. If it doesn't fit, it doesn't go in there. As for wiring up the motherboard, you'll need to consult the manual for the front panel (or FP) headers. The wires from the case should be clearly labeled.

Air: Cooler Master 212
Water AIO: Corsair H80i (or H60 if you're on a budget).

Don't get water if you aren't planning on heavy overclocking.
