Looking great. Loving the ROG theme. Are the cards staying air cooled?

They will stay with the stock cooler yeah! smile.gif As mentioned in the beginning, this will be one of the first rigs I do where I do not watercool the graphic cards.

Got the motherboard for this build, and I must say that I really, really like the new way ASUS has gone with their ROG brand with red being more of a subtle highlight feature on the boards instead of being the main color!

All I want for christmas is a X99 version of this board:D

Pretty standard packaging if you have ever had one of the ROG boards in hand.

I´ve previously mentioned that the graphic cards are going to sit flush against each other which is because there is no third slot on the gene board, and the two there is is fixed with one slot spacing. Oh well, the cards will do fine anyway!

In all its glory!

The new LGA 1151 socket.

Getting the hang of the lighting on black backgrounds!

I personally like the looks of this one way more than the VII. I cannot say anything about performance as I have yet to boot it up biggrin.gif

That is a great looking board. Much better than the over the top all red they used to make. smile.gif

I agree man. The subtle hints of red looks much better on the board!

How do you like some grey/black sleeving then? For this build I am using a combination of grey/black & red/black sleeving. This was chosen to not "overdo" the red in the build.

How do you guys like this combo?

Complements the new ROG scheme perfectly. Very nice.
