LOL what sort of feedback would you like you've build a pretty meaty machine there. :D

The only think I'm unsure about is the PSU and that's only because you haven't specified the model.

What's the machine for, and how are you planning on storing larger files away from the SSD?

another thing that amused me is the ram choice :D

You have a corsair, case, cooler, PSU, SSD, then when you could have had corsair ram as well you stick in some patriot :D

It's excellent build. I only suggest CORSAIR Memory Instead of Patriot and you can use some better motherboard for OC that powerful 3770K later, something like Maximus 5 Gene. It's not expensive but excellent for OC and I would rather choose Vengeance C70 case with excellent air flow Gunmetal Black, H100i - revision of H100. You can buy AX650 Gold or AX750 Gold PSU. Smart people will wait now if AX Gold price go down because Platinum to buy some model for next few years.
That's wonderful gaming build.

Is there a big difference in terms of performance between h100 and h100i?

The H100i has much better stock fans and fan/temp management. Those are the only differences I know, there may be more, such as upgraded pump, coolant, rad, etc.

Well, from what I see, the tubing changed for more flexibility in H100i.

Ah yes, it is not the corrugated plastic any more, now it is like insulated tubing.
