well the client wants thhe 16 gigs and an intel provessor clients are usually very picky about things like that. And where would you fit a 240 mm rad in that case  

In that case, your build looks alright, however, you should try and see if you can squeeze an ssd and/or some 1866 memory in there somewhere. I assume the client will not be persuaded that 16gb is useless for gaming, and that he would be better off with 8gb of higher quality RAM.

A note on the motherboards, I have heard that the Asus maximus v genes are great when they work, but have a relatively high rate of defects. I would go with the asrock if I were you.the reason I suggested the Antec eleven hundred is that you had proposed it in your post. It will not accept a 240mm rad.I would select the 2700k CPU and use the extra few bucks elsewhere.You should probably get a few more opinions before buying these parts, I have probably forgotten somthing important.


damn clients spenh my time putting together a rig do the consult then they take what I did and decide to do it by them selves depriving me of the joy of building a computer and my pay.


get a SSD

and if your only gaming just get 8 gb of 1600 or 1866 ram
