First question. Whats your budget? Please don't say "I don't have a budget" or you will get suggestions saying "buy 50 SSDs and RAID them" haha. Aparenly the performance leap between 1155 and 1150 CPUs will be minimal so I wouldn't suggest waiting unless you really want to.
Cheers,

My Budget at this point is open as I will be funding pieces bit by bit each week and month etc. I dont plan on odering 6k of stuff in one hit. I plan on selling a lot of old bits and pieces from other hobbies to help fund components. Because of this it is hard to predict what i will throw at it. At current i still have a fairly decent system that will keep me up and running.

Pedestal arrived and assembled. 120mm Top cover arrived with it, oddly enough the case didn't arrive with them. Tomorrow I suppose. 2nd Last pic is the 2x 560mm radiator mounts installed. Last pic is the 560's I'm hoping to drop in. I'm ready to buy a Titan when they are back in stock. What's the deal with the EVGA card being cheaper than palit etc? Is the factory overclock a disadvantage or something? Can't figure it out, want EVGA or ASUS though. Thinking about going OS if the wait is too long. At this stage I'm like the look of the EVGA X79 dark mobo for this build. Has mixed feedback on looks but I think I like it.

Social worker.

Shape-o and kids toys in the back ground.

TH10 and Titan?

Spoiler below, highlight to read:
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a drug dealer.


haha

Looking good so far, can't wait to see your jaw drop when you start ordering watercooling bits and it ends up costing more than the TH10

Good luck!

Had a good laugh Komm. I was on my iPhone and couldn't see the highlighted part until i got on the PC.

If you must know how I'm funding it



I just read through your build log and can see why water cooling parts will add up. Damn you have a nice system, great work.. I want your ram too. Do you notice any difference in PC speed with faster ram?

Ended up taking this advice and will keep some gear for a little longer, Cheers.

Ram is good -you defiantly don't have to go for the platinum - there are plenty of other 2400MHz sticks with tighter timing for less dollars, but in the real world use of a PC you don't notice much difference.. I mainly went for the platinums for the look AND the guarantee that you would be able to run at rated speed.

As for your AX1200, you can buy pre-sleeved cable sets, which is the easy way of getting sleeved cables in the system. It may be a bit more expensive than buying Bitfenix sleeved cables, but at least you get EVERYTHING and you don't have to hide mountains of stock cables.

As for your SSD's, you don't need the bracket, this is where you can get creative, and knock something up yourself!
