    Congrats on the first build

    Only thing I would have changed is gone for a z270 and 7700k mobo and CPU and sink the left over money into a gtx1080 graphics card

    What monitor are you using and what case is it all in

    Fairly customary to put pics up

    Monitor is 32' Samsung , nothing special but I'm looking to get something with 4k and case is one of the biggest on the market witch helps with cable management and also comes with fans and lots of other extras

    Rotate the first pic before posting......don't hurt others necks.

    P.s. Red on white theme comes across as taking a virginity - IMHO it is such a shock contrast 'clean white to blood red'.....

    It looks like a stunning build - pics are confusing at best.

    To Bold Eagle. Sorry about your neck but I have changed those photos and I hope you don't have to take any meds. It is my first build so I did best I could. Theme 'clean white to blood red' it's experiment, NZXT cases come with built in LED lights and colour settings so what colour theme would you recommend for white case?

    He is having a dig at ya.. ;)

    Colour and style is all personal preference. Don't ask other people what looks good, decide what looks good to YOU. That's the only thing that matters.

    Mine is a black case with green led lighting and red led GPU. I've offset that with white fans, white leds in my Raystorm Pro cpu block, and used white coolant with clear tubing and black chrome fittings. Its all adjustable too, I just like that combo.

    If I were to offer any colour advice it would be to just choose and use.. nothing worse than constantly changing colour or distracting lighting effects.. for me, of course, you may think the exact opposite.

    I think my case is half the height and length of yours, and not quite as wide. I like em' small and tight :lol: Link in my sig has specs.

    Thanks - but don't make it personal - why do 'such an awesome job' on your build and then post pics that aren't horizontal? Simple isn't it!

    I do take meds for chronic back pain (rarely).......I can still post a pic on the correct horizon- it ain't hard!

    White and dark purple would be interesting but you have done an awesome job!

    I think the long yellow cord is some kind of auxiliary power connection, looks like its leading from a sata port.
    Zip tie an industrial Noctua fan to the Northbridge? Pencil could be a bit longer too, size really does matter no matter what they say ;)
