Need opinions on case colour scheme

So I've found a buyer for my old rig (maybe), and want a new one.

I have to decide on the colour sheme first though.
Case will be an Antec Mini P180 with a window mod.

Options (these are some colour swatches I did up):
Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD4
White Mini P180
Aquamarine MDPC sleeving kit
White LED lighting

Would look something like this:

White/black/red (not so keen on this)
White Mini P180
Asus Maximus 3 Gene
Black MDPC sleeving kit with red highligts
White LED lighting

Black Mini P180
Asus Maximus 3 Gene
Black MDPC sleeving kit with red highlights
Red LED lighting

Black Mini P180
Red and white LED lighting
No swatch, but I saw this and loved it.

I'm kinda leaning away from the white case, even though my friend thinks it'd be awesome. Mainly because of few pictures I've seen of it, none of them seem to indicate the white is uniform (ie the front panel is darker than the sides). Also, it'd be harder to keep clean (fingerprints. although dust would be invisible)

But what do you guys think?

Blue Gigabyte motherboards don't contrast well with a black case.

I prefer the Asus Maximus 3 Gene, It'll contrast much better with the black interior and exterior.

I like the whole theme of red and black, try and see if you can get some red fans or cathode ray tubes.

I honestly love black and red. I think a Gigabyte board would look good maybe if you were going blue and black.

Any body else got an opinion on this?
The other thing I just stumbled upon was this:

Which opens up the possibility of Black/blue...

Also, anybody ever seen a black motherboard with white highlights? If not, what would you think about painting expansion slots?
How about just white and red or just white and black?

Problem is finding a motherboard that fits the scheme. White/red I've never seen, and white/black was an original consideration, until I couldn't find a board. Although, EVGA has one that's close

Yellow and black if you use a DFI board

Does anyone know of good online stores that sell white ATX and molex connectors?
Preferably AU.
That will be the dealbreaker, if I can find them or not.
White ATX connectors? What's that mean exactly. For the molex you could buy a PSU that has white molex connections and sleeve the cables manually. Or you could actually buy extensions for all the ones that will be seen since those are usually sold in a white color.
I am unable to vote in the poll, but my vote would be for blue/white as I haven't seen too many computers using that color scheme. Red/black is too common in my opinion.
