This is my first time building a computer and it has definitely been a learning experience. Overall I am happy with it although there is a couple things i would like to change now that i have more experience with the in's n out's of computer components and there overall capabilities. I'm open to any criticisms or compliments on what you guys think actually i would greatly appreciate them cause i'm eager to learn more,

Watercool those cards bro, put a neat cover over the psu / hdds and mount the ssd's on them.
And please mount that rad inside, i feel sorry for that rad if it gets bumped my accident :'(
But it is a good solid build! Why AMD though? i5 3470k wouldve been a better option, unless you benefit from the AMD processor?

Pretty wreath :):):)
Watercooling pipes are not aesthetic at all and make it past a pipe back and forth with such a diameter just for the CPU before the CM is even less
Not a fan of any short :(:(:(

I originally planned to watercool the cards but can't find any waterblocks for the 660ti and the rad is to fat so i gotta get a thinner one
