Default Re: Help with $1400 system build

Sorry was at work when I replied to that.

The cooler, those Deepcool AIOs are known to split right where the little pipe comes out of the block. Stupendously horrendous design and they still insist on using it after numerous reviews complained about it cracking from heat right there. You can get the Corsair 100i for about the same price.

Motherboard, in terms of actual chipset there's realistically not a whole lot of different besides certain features. For one if you want to SLI that board won't do it. Although you won't need to OC the CPU anytime in the near future, you'll probably want to keep the platform longer than me so it might be needed in the future. You'll need a Z270 board for both. (I run my 7700k stock even with 2 Titan XPs, it's just a damn beast man)

If for whatever reason you wanted to stick with mATX.

If you want to do SLI later, you need a better PSU.
