The "Corsair Dominator" $3480 Gaming/Editing PC

Hey if you have not seen the build that I was going to make here is an update to the ultimate $3000 build. Click Here: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/14464-the-ultimate-3400-3700-build-soon-help-me-choose-a-name/

This is the build that I will be putting together because I noticed I had no space for a full tower pc. So this pc is meant to be small, but still pack a punch in performance. I am taking up the whole space of case. I am putting a 240 radiator on the top of the case and a 120 radiator on the front of the case where the hard drive cages are. The reservoir in one of the 5.25 Bay and above or below will be a pump. All the fans will be replaced. Two Graphics cards will be water cooled and overclocked so will the cpu probably to 4.6 ghz. This may vary. So now you know what I am going to do for water cooling now to the parts. This is a Corsair build! Pictures soon!

Yep, hope you meant the Maxmius V Gene because otherwise you gotta return that Maximus V Formula.

That is some mighty hardware you plan to fit a 350D. I haven't seen any 350D builds so far so this should be interesting. Good luck my friend....

Well now that I see that Haswell is soon to come I will wait for it so I will also will not water cool it anymore because I think just cooling the CPU is enough.
