OK, I'm doing a S8 build I'll call "Nuthin Special"
S8 with hi top, windows/vents doors/120.2 flex bay/both big and small MB mounting options/240 an 360 lower bay mounts.
EKWB XTX360 kit with a second XTX360 and a XTX240.
EVGA or Seasonic 1200 Platinum PS.
ID Cooling 1600rpm fans in green and white lighting.
Z97 EVGA Classified or Z97 ASUS Maximus Formula VII MB.
4790k @ 5.0
32GB G.SKills @ 2400 DDR3 10/11/11/27 1t
2x 1TB Samsung EVO840 SSD's RAID
2x 512GB WD Hybrid drives RAID
2TB WD Hybrid drive
ASUS BluRay/DVD/CD RW
2X EVGA GTX 980 Classified KingPins SLI
My kah-nuh-drum is color.
I was planning a EVGA system with green fluid/lighting but now I have this ASUS board and I'm torn. I pretty much hate red and my plan was to simply paint the spreaders on the ram Kawi Candy Lime (maybe even case parts at the same time) and have the case lighting in white green with green hose wire and cabling.
I have another box (750D) for the wife that has a 4770k @ up to 4.8/32GB 2133/H100i/2x 128GB ADATA ssd raid/1TB 7200 WD/600GB sata2 HD/250GB sata2/ASUS DVD/CD RW/a few fans and 2X ZOTAC 980 AMP Extreme SLI with the Seasonic running it. It's reallllllly quite which will make her happy.
I'm thinking I love the ASUS board but hate the red. The EVGA board is super solid for me and the wire routing is top notch + it will match my KPE's and the PS.
Maybe I'm frik'n nutz but I like the idea of a matched brand setup. Who knows, in sex months maybe I'll have a couple ASUS 395's and do a 180?
I guess after all the rambling maybe I should go with my gut .... or paint all the ugly red on the ASUS board green!
