Is this a good stable motherboard for this setup? if not, what is the best Micro-ATX Motherboard w/ LGA 1150 supporting 32gb of ddr3 ram? (trying to keep colors green, blue, black, grey, or white) And if anyone has any other suggestions on parts let me know. I'm also going to wait for the new ATI cards to come out so the r9 i have on the wishlist is just there to balance the price.

You dont need 750 watts for that build there, not unless you are going to have 2 video cards.
Even if you are dont get a Corsair RM you can get a much better PSU thats cheaper, the RM is overpriced and mediocre.

Considering your attempted colour scheme, you might get a better adhesion to it with an MSI or ASRock board. I'm thinking that the green might clash since you seem to have quite a bit of white and blue. The ASRock Z97M Pro4 has the softer blue.

With the GPU you can always just paint the back plate, or add one and paint it.

Too bad you weren't going full atx or you try to land one of the ASUS white Sabertooth boards.

And for gaming, what do you think a good choice of ram is that has a good speed, so ive just realized the amount of gigs doesnt improve gaming speed, but the speed of the ram does.. So im thinkin 8 gigs of some high speed ran is enought to max out bf4? Or would i need 16 gigs

I'm pretty sure current convention is that 8 is enough for most users in most applications. If there is budget I don't see a problem going with 16. I'm pretty sure the only way you would need more than 16 is if you're doing editing of some sort continuously. As for As for ram speed, there isn't much of a difference in real world usage between 1600 and 2000. I would get the fastest you can get before you start paying a huge price premium, just make sure it's on the motherboards QVL.
