I have a question. I watched as the cooling radiator was placed, but why are the fans mounted so they're on top of the radiator? I'm assuming they are exhausting air. Does it matter how the fans are arranged? Push or pull? Just curious. Most installs are all pushing air through the radiator.

Everything I've read had to do with over 1080p upto 4k. The new monitor is 1080p. Not planning on 4k. The CPU from what I've read, should be fine.

Was looking into that. Don't need the hyperthreading. Not streaming games. I have wiggle room.

Revamped the list. Not into overclocking, so with that said, I changed out CPU. Keeping stock fan. The case has plenty in the way off moving air. Plus, I have extra 120 & 140mm fans. Added SSD. Swaped out 970's for 980's. Changed monitor. Also payed for full retail version of Windows 8.1.
