+ Total (United States):
This is my second build ever. I have assisted many people with builds since my first, four years ago. I decided I wanted to go for as white of a build as possible. We play on a 4k 75" TV, mostly with controllers. We also use it with an VIVE. Had a great time collecting parts and building. I'm very happy with the results. Biggest problem I had is the "white" LEDS. Apparently white can mean light blue or slight pink. I feel I did a decent job with cable management in the front, the back could be improved. I wanted the 24-pin connector to come straight out and not droop down, so the back is tied up weird. The system is really quite, loudest part is the hard drive.
CPU: I went with the i5 because I'm used intel in the past. Many people have pointed out I should've gone with Ryzen. Currently over-clocked to 5ghz, not breaking 70 degrees under load. I'm happy with my choice.
CPU COOLER: Easy to install, white, and very quite. Cooling very well.
MOTHERBOARD: I was unable to find a white mother boards for the current gen Intel chips. I went with this one because it has white accents and "white" LEDS. As you can see in the pictures, these LEDS are not close to white at all, they are very light blue. I'm also not a fan of the location of the USB3 header. I had to run this cable kinda in an awkward spot.
MEMORY: Nice and white lights.
STORAGE: Purchased solely on the price. The Hitachi drive is awfully loud.
GPU: Only white RTX 2080 I could find. So far it runs everything as expected. As of now, not planning on overclocking it.
CASE: I see these cases used all the time. I now know why. This case is great, easy cable management. Looks great. I did paint a good portion of the inside to go with my white theme.
PSU: Got it cheap with a MIR
After seeing all the clashing of the "white" LEDs. I'm probably going to go with a blue or other color to make them at least all match.
