Personally, wouldn't get an AM3+ CPU because so old and terrible performance/heat, but it is your choice. I'd gone an i5 4460 or similar and beat the performance given by the 8370.

1230 Is basically an i7 without IGPU, can't be OCED, and has ECC support. Saves alot of money

Yea, obviously it depends on what the user needs, but the 970 performs AS NVIDIA said it would. PErsonally, I'd take the 970 over the 390 any day because of power draw/heat, but it may be different to another person.

390 isn't powerful enough to utilize the full 8 gigabytes. If anything 390x > 970.

Ehh. It is okay, but you could have saved some money. the 4790 can't be OCed, and you got a z97 board w/a cooler.

I would have done a Xeon 1231v3, skipped the cooler, and gone with a lack h97 boad.

No, A 390s will pull about 450 watts AVG, so 2 pulling about 600-800 watts is expected.

Nice build! I would question an 8350 as of today, but just OC it to 4.5 and you should be set for a while.

Good build, and just before my OCD kills me, are you going to route the 8 pin CPU EPS power plug through the back of the case?

I +1 to you sir. I have seen many first time builders buy cheap parts with NO understand of what they mean, buy Corsair PSus, (CX/CS) and then complain of haswell c6 states etc. +1. You took the time to research the process of building it and what components were ideal. I agree with EVERY choice selection. Welcome to the Glorious PCMasterRace! :)

ON a quality MOBO, there should be no issue to weight. I have had a lot of problems with MSI about that but not Gigabyte asus nor asrock.

I have to say. For someone who used to always recommend water cooled parts,

10/10

I have moved to air, and it is the ONLY reliable cooling solution. With a AIO, you cant replace the pump without sending the entire unit back. However, just send the fan back and BAM good to go.

+1 for showing people you dont need ******* water cooling

I edit a lot of photos and video(family) and the 5820k plows through it with ease. My longest time editing/rendering was 10 minutes for a 30 minute video. I love it .^

Of course the ram and mobo was expensive, but I bought the mobo open box and Microcenter gave me a 40$ discount if I bought a cpu with the mobo. I bought the mobo for 150$ and the cpu for 300$
