Budget:
[3000.00]

Expectations:
[Max Gaming,somewhat future proof]

Usage:
[Gaming,Streaming]

Special Needs:
[None]

Saved Ticket #: [706967]

Specifications:
[Will be playing in mainly 1080p resolution, depends on monitor I pick up.]

Also Ive considered going with Air cooling, with the Noctua cpu fan.. but im worried about the size and how much clearance there would be with Sli graphics cards. Ive settled for the vortex atm but the lack of info worries me, and I am not sure how reliable the lifespan is of such a cooler. I dont plan on high overlocking, maybe to 4ghz-4.2ghz at most.. would air be sufficient?

Big%20SmileHi Nemicyst...Welcome to the DS forums.
 
That build is real nice.Big%20Smile  Not sure you need the LED chassis fan upgrade.  It will be noisier if they add additional fans to what you have.  Nice for eye candy but I would ask DS what exactly thet do with the fans and the added noise.  They are great at telling ya what's what.
 
The D14 cooler will not interfere with sli cards.  It mounts above the Pcie slots and wouldn't be a problem.   The Vortex 240mm cooler is a nice cooler with a decent track record, but we always recommend the D14 air cooler because it cools great, is quiet and very reliable.  As I always say, not much to go wrong with a big block of metal cooling fins.  Air cooling is sufficient for sure.
 
We also like the HafX case for tops in cooling with its 230mm front fan, and top and side 200mm fans causing lots of air flow., but your call.  This case will work fine, just not the same cooling.
 
Good luck.Big%20Smile
