Looking to fully replace my current gaming PC and move into the 1440p era with a solid G-Sync framerates.

I'd get a cheaper air CPU cooler, and put another hundy at the GPU and get a 1080. If it were me.

As he said, I got the cheapest AIO (Deepcool Maelstrom 120t) and it worked fine with a 6600k, Cryorig M9i Intel is another good alternative.

you will need a 1080+ to make that monitor worth it.

I have the M9i and its solid for $50. You don't NEED a 1080, for 1440p. I have a 980Ti and it's fine, but I would spend that difference in this case to get the better GPU. Much better in the long run.

Yea solid build. Like others have said would change the gpu. though more so because the turbo card has a terrible cooler. better to get something with a solid multi fan setup otherwise youll lose clock speed or itll be loud as

Very true. I've just been through this with my 980ti, after moving to 1440p. Temps and noise were up massively after ditching v-sync when going to 1440p from 1080p and the evga cooler on the 980ti was definitely struggling a bit. I ended up getting a aftermarket GPU cooler which has brought temps down dramatically, noise down to almost silent and boost GPU clock speeds to a higher and more stable speed. It definitely is a fine balance finding the best combo of noise, temps and performance.

Thanks for the tips all. I'll change up the cooler and look at a GTX1080

EDIT: Have removed the liquid cooling and gone for air and changed the 1070Ti for a GTX1080.

Looks pretty good. If you want, you might be able to get a cheaper H- or B-series chipset mobo if you wait a little while – I don't know how long, but I'd imagine it is only a few weeks.
