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?
