I actually like the yellow/black color scheme because I think red/black is totally played out.

The unfortunately thing is that you cannot use your own fittings for the mobo water block. There's a barb and since I will be going rigid acrylic, that's going to be a problem...

I also vouch for the ASUS but you can't go wrong with either... I have Haswell in my rig at the moment even though it says 8350 in the sig. The reality is that I still have both and I will decide on them later, since multithreading might or might not be coming biggrin.gif
