Why not use an i7? Is the price argument even relevant on a 5k build?

in crossfire/sli setups, it does make a difference, no huge, but there's still one

that's true, digital foundry on youtube has shown that crossfired furies are even held back by an i7-4790K and they had to use an i7-5960X to get everything out of those furies.

Idd, after building it, i can clearly say it's all because of those Rads... they barely fit in the air 540!!!

yea i see you set the radiators as exhaust mode? or do they look like intake to me?

intake... bent the rules abit there... but if you take the case as a whole it works well :) Infact the Rads(therefore Reservoir too) are also turned to the side... with no air bubble problems. Basically the setup has a bitfenix spectre pro 120mm and 2 Fury X rads pulling air in from the front and one 140mm Bitfenix Spectre pro and the Corsair Hydro GTX 110i Pushing air out of the case from the back and top... Considering the hardware in there... its all very cool :)

ah i not sure if it helps

because when the radiators are set to be intake mode

it actually dumping heat into the system

if your exhaust fan are not working fast enough

the internal temps may be higher

True that, however intakes are 120mm fans vs exhaust fans are 140mm fans... working on Balanced/Negative pressure there :) Given that I also added Demciflex filters to the case should not be a prblem ;)

Your the only OTHER person I've seen with Crossfire Fury X cards. Sweet build! We have allot of similar tastes, lol. Only drawback (if you can honestly even call it one lol) is the i5. . . I have to agree with everyone there, BUT that's the only thing. And, that gaming chair with frame for keyboard, mouse, and triple monitors is beautiful, QQ (makes me cry). I'm thinking about going away from my current monitor to a 21:9 Acer x34 predator with FreeSync for the same feel. I say it will have to wait because of how expensive a build like this is, but who am I kidding, lol, I'll probably have it in a couple months.

More Photos will be incoming soon :) Thanks to all for your comments, really appreciate community feedback!

Re. i5-6600k my real comparison was between the overclocking potential of both chips... and this just mainly for gaming... If you notice, i instead spent the extra on a 512GB M.2 which i'm loving to this very day due to the immense access speeds... This does not prevent future upgrades ofcourse :)
