I tried that at first too but i couldnt get the theme that i wanted. Before i had the MSI z170a m5 mobo. But the red flashy heatsinks didnt really do it with the rest of the case. Plus the asus is a much more stable board! I went from 1,48 vcore at 4,78ghz to 1,42 at 4,81 ghz. Never thought it would make such a difference. I hope your mobo will do just as good!
