Thanks! I just can't wait for Haswell to be available smile.gif

I just got the case, it's awesome!
Update coming this evening or tomorrow biggrin.gif

Now I'm wondering about the GPU, I'm a 1920x1200 gamer so I really think the gtx-770 is a wise choice. Plus I found this Gainward Phantom really matching the color scheme.

Any thoughts on this card ?

Well, it was just released like the other day..... lol
I have a 670 ftw which should be perfect for 1920x1080 (my resolution). The 770 has about 5-10 more frames per second than the 670 and its just a little bit faster than the 680. The cooler on that Gainward is supposed to be good though too. I sort of wished I waited for this card :/ I thought the 700 series wouldn't be out till late summer so I bought a 670.... and I have yet to put together my build!!! (my case arrives today)

For gaming at 1920 x 1200, why not get a 7970? You can get them for around $360 and perform on par (if not better) than the 770. The gainward 770 would also be good, but it's just released and may not be available yet. Oooorrrrr with the release of the 770 and 780, you may soon be able to find an evga 680 sold for around that price; and it would match your color scheme beautifully smile.gif. It's your build, so it's up to you, man.

Guys thank you for your help thumb.gif

The case arrived yesterday, here are some pics:


Already installed the fans:


With some sleeved cables inside:


I was really mad because the HD AUDIO cable had no black sleeve, so I made up a fast fix with some heat shrinks:


Oh I almost forgot 4 sticks like this one also arrived:

Now that I'm pretty sure I'll get the Gainward GTX-770 Phantom, the last (hard) choice is the motherboard.

I consider 3 possibilities:

Asus Z87 Gryphon with the thermal armor, but I really don't like the brown notes on the board.
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95

Asus Maximum VI Gene, the red would fit with the AX760 sticker, but maybe there is to much red for a "black&white" build biggrin.gif
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Asrock Z87m extreme4 would fit the color scheme, but I'm not really an Asrock fan rolleyes.gif
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

I need some advices thumb.gif

Any Asus is great! Great warranty and RMA process from what I hear. I never had a problem from them, the UEFI Bios is easy and awesome to navigate through, power and access to overclock is just great as well.

I have personaly banned ASRock from my life and no longer will buy because of their crappy RMA and warranty. Most people don't have a problem with them but the few I have that needed it, I counted them as a loss and never touched them again.

So my vote is of course Asus, either are great boards

You could probably overpower the brown with enough white cables and **** on the griffon. I think your best choice for a black and white build would be the griffon or the asrock. Otherwise the gene would be great for hints of red.... Idk just my two cents

Get the Gryphon and the thermal armour and paint the armour to the desired colour/style. Win/Win?
