Change the PSU. 750 watts is waaaaaaaaaaaaay to much for a single GPU set-up. Your system will never exceed 500 even when overclocked. 

 

Also change the CPU Cooler maybe? Something that matches your coler scheme maybe? :))

I want to potentially go SLI in the future, hence the 750W PSU. Moreover, the NOCTUA CPU Cooler is killer good and I don't mind the color.

What kind of school is this?! xD 

oh, and btw, does the school pay for that? eheh

 

I have to pay for it, but its for a personal project that seniors must complete and counts for 75% of our mark in technology.

Well, as long as you have fun building it... either way, you'll end up with a very nice pc and a good great (I hope so :P )

I'd go for a pre-done liquid cooler over the air cooler. Besides that, very nice build!


Case: CM HAF Stacker 935 - CPU: Intel i5 4670k - GPU: Two EVGA 780 3GB Classified in SLI - Mobo: Asus z97-WS - Ram: Corsair Vengeance Pro 1866mhz (2x4gb) - HDD: WD 1TB - SSD -Kingston 120gb - All Water Cooled with a custom loop.

Very nice but go for a h100i and samung 840 non pro

exactly what i did when building mine, cpu hasnt been above 40 degrees celsius and the non pro is about $100 dollars cheaper for a marginally slower (unnoticeably slower) sdd

Looks like a solid build, only think I can mention is maybe double check whether that ram will be compatible with the D-14 looks like the heat spreaders might be bit high.

You might want to go with a 4670K instead, that way you save some money and get a sound card or a 256GB SSD. Also you might want to get LP versions of that RAM to avoid compatibility issues and an HD 7950/7970 offer better bang for the buck than the 770.

this asus motherboard is soo ugly in my opinion you can buy a much nicer one from gigabyte or msi

 

I like the gold accents and the color scheme of the motherboard, gpu, psu and ram. If you can suggest a different color scheme using similar parts that adhere to a color scheme it would be splendid.

get the 680 bc the 680 is basically to 770 

770 is cheaper to buy than a 680. Better to get the 770 and then it won't look like it is a generation behind.


Setup: i5 4670k @ 4.2 Ghz, Corsair H100i Cooler, Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB Ram @ 1600 Mhz, MSI Z87-GD65 Motherboard, Corsair GS700 2013 edition PSU, MSI GTX 770 Lightning, Samsung EVO 120 SSD + 2TB&1TB Seagate Barracudas, BenQ XL2411T Monitor, Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones + AntLion ModMic 4.0

The i7 may be a little bit over kill depending on what you do.
