    Default New rig, need other people's thoughts

    First gotta say I'm typing this from my phone so I apologize in advance for any errors.

    Ok! So I have two options I'm going with (only real difference between the two are color) but I'd like to hear what people think both on what they think is more appealing and any suggestion on different hardware and why etc.

    1.black/red
    Case: Corsais graphite series 760t atx full tower black

    Motherboard: Asus rampage V extreme LGA2011-v3

    Processor: Intel i7-5820k

    Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000)

    Video card:EVGA 04G-2982-KR GeForce GTX 980

    Cooling: Corsair air series 140mm red led x2

    Corsair air series 120mm red led x1

    EVGA 100-FS-C201-KR 120mm Long Life Bearing ACX Active Cooling Extreme CPU Cooler, Direct Touch 5x8mm Heat Pipe

    2. White/black
    Case: Corsair graphite series 760t atx full white

    Motherboard: ASUS X99-DELUXE LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99

    Processor: Intel i7-5820k

    Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000)

    Video card: EVGA 04G-2982-KR GeForce GTX 980

    Cooling: CORSAIR Hydro Series H105 Extreme Performance 240mm Liquid CPU Cooler

    Corsair air series 140mm white led x2

    Corsair air series 120mm white led x1

    The price difference between the two is just $20 but again would like input on wether you would switch any hardware and why and or also which look you like better, thanks!

    I've always liked white computers better than black and red, but that's just me. As far as the differences that actually matter, the boards seem pretty much the same (although I don't particularly like ASUS), and I'd probably go with the "white/black" option, but without the fancy liquid cooling stuff (and with plain white fans instead of LED models, but that's again just me...).

    Have you decided on a power supply yet?
