    New PC, opinions? also, RGB or white LEDs?

    Well I consider this a project as it took a while to lay out how I wanted everything.

    Opinions on the LEDs? should I go white/black or RGB/black from the pics below after the specs?

    I recently just finished building a new PC for workstation related projects such as websites/art/video editing.

    My old fx-6300 from AMD couldn't handle the workload but I made that PC in the intention to only game on it which it does just fine, but exporting videos is god awful on it.

    Very nice build indeed.
    Definitely a case to show off the hardware..
    RGB does contain white or kind teal-white color so you can go with rgb and still stay neutral..
    I would rather just get the new ml140 pro white fans instead of an actual led strip they are way better than the sp fans and way more silent.

    I was considering the ml140 but i like the non flashy black sp/af fans with white rings, looks mellow, the LED strip is more for ambient lighting

    Well, then definitely go with RGB led strip because I know the cooler can do a lot of awesome things.
    In fact, you can combine your nzxt cooler with the nzxt hue+ that's an overkill, but hey... with that build, you definitely deserve it
