For about five months, I've been wanting to do this build. Water-cooled, single GPU, open case for maximum showoff-ability and of course, many cans of spray paint. I am an enthusiast with a moderate to advance (depends who you're asking) understanding of PC's and Windows. I have built a total of four PCs, all dual R9 290 beasts in Crossfire X config. My overclocking experience is not that thorough, though. So one might say, "then why build this new PC?" and the answer is because I enjoy learning and having a wicked fast computer for C4D GPU accelerated renders (a new frontier since I have never had Nvidia cards).
I am making this blog not as a guide of any sort, since I am far from a professional, but to share the fun of buying and building. Hope you enjoy!
