Very nice. Similar to my setup, but it seems you one-upped me on the processor and video card.

4770K
GTX 970, here.
16GB RAM, 512 GB Samsung EVO 850 SSD, two platters for games/movies and whatnot, all in a Fractal Design R5 case. LOVE this case!

I almost went with a dual 970 setup, but I've been reading that games have a problem with SLI'd cards more often than not, and can't take advantage of it.

What water cooler is that? How do you like it? What's your clock speed and temps like on that cooler?

Sorry, it's a 4670K processor. I've got it overclocked to 4.6GHz, 1.325 V.
Cooler is a Corsair H90. I like it plenty, it's very quiet, but sometimes wish it were a bit bigger. Seems to do well at my relatively low core voltage. Idles around 33 degrees, under full load with the video card heating up the case a bit, it'll just barely break 65 degrees. It might be a bit cooler, but I like quiet. I've got all the case fans running at only 40% under 45 degrees. Full throttle at 70.

Water cooling will be my next step. I figure I shouldn't need to OC for a bit anyway, but I have heard the stock cooler on the 4790K is garbage.

It will suffice as long as you don't overclock it. It might not boost up as far as it could, but eh, it'll be fine for a while.

The main reason I went with an AIO water cooler on my build is because all the heat the CPU makes goes straight out of the case. My next PC I'd like to do a fully custom loop--CPU, GPU, possibly northbridge too.

The cable routing ports for that case are great. That's a super clean cable run setup.
