White/black themed build! - Page 3

post #21 of 58
Thread Starter 
Good news! I got my money tonight, and I've just ordered everything for the computer! expect it to all be delivered on the 10th. so i'll have pics posted up soon! changed a few of the parts!

Went with averic core white ram, as it pulses with white LED for a nice feel. and I went with a different cpu cooler. I was going with a big chunky cpu cooler, which frankly looks ****. and they all do. so I changed to a "Be quiet! Dark rock TF" it's a blow down cpu cooler, not as good as say a DH-15 noctua, but for £10 cheaper, it looks 10x better. unfortunately it's pure black, and uses 135mm fans. I will try to change that, by using 2 120mm parvum fans, for a white fan look. but i'll test that in a few weeks I think!

I also couldn't get the Cablemod cables I wanted. which I believe are the same as yours, black/white. they were out of stock, and all of the cablemod cables for a G2 evga were out. so i'll just stick with the EVGA black wires. there actually really good from what I've seen

Hopefully the finished system will look the part! the only flaw might be the cpu cooler. but I'm sure it will look good inside haha! Did you have any thoughts about changing to air cooling still?

I guess you could try ebay, but it is second hand and people might query as to why you're selling it frown.gif

Good news! motherboard has turned up! just waiting on the big order from Overclockers with the rest of the stuff.

Sorry for the bad qualiy, **** knows why My phone has a great camera! Yeah the z97/am3+ krait look crap! there is another white theme mobo in the z170 called the Asus A deluxe and stuff. same price, but the KRAIT is sooooo much better. like seriously, it's so ******* sexy. PLUS!! biggest bonus here is... METAL GPU BRACKETS. finally... ******* hate the plastic flimsy ones

The Z97 is much simpler looking, yeah, but I like it smile.gif Jumping to Z170 is not beneficial for me, only maybe and I stress the MAYBE jumping to X99, but that would be expensive as ****!!

your 4790k is fine. I was going to go with the z97 for the 4790k. but the new I5 6600k is actually amazing. Plus sexier mobos!! tongue.gif

I think for your theme, you totally should have gone with the Hall Of Fame 980 ti like me!
