Themed build (Colors, etc) 1155 Build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've put together two wishlists. I'm trying to build a system that matches across all components. Here is what I have:

Red/Black:

COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN1-GP Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

BIOSTAR TP67XE LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

XFX HD-695A-CNFC Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ700MXSP 700W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K

Blue/Black:

LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62 Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

ASUS P8P67 LE LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

MSI R6950-2PM2D2GD5 Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K

The red/black build, the HAF 922 doesn't have a black interior, which I don't like. Are there other recommendations for a case that is good? For my blue/black build I like the 6950, but I'm hearing flashing it to 6970 might not be a good idea due to power connector issues and by the time I buy, AMD may have shipped the newer batch which supposedly prevents this.

I'm looking to maximize performance and cost and if possible do not want to go lower than GTX 570/6950 and matching components is important. Fan LED's are preferred (Blue or Red, for either build) Cost between 800-900

Any recommendations or changes to either of these 2?

I know with the red/black build you want a psu with a red sticker, but I would stay away from the OCZ psu's. I've seen people photoshop stickers red to make it match if you wanted to do something like that. The Corsair you have in your other build is good though.

Get a HAF 932 Black Edition case instead of the HAF 922. It has the full black interior and isn't much more than the 922. And stay away from OCZ power supplies. Go for something from Corsair, Enermax or Seasonic.
