If you were going to do a build again, what colour would it be?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, just wondering if you had the chance to build your PC again? What colour code would you do it in? For me it'd be orange and black, because those new LTT fans look sexc! I'd also choose those gigabyte OC mobos. What colour would you do and why if you were to build/are going to build a PC again?

I honestly don't care about the colors or appearence. 

Bang for buck > colors/aesthetics


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

White/black/gold

 

White and black case with huge side panel window (probably from InWin), ASUS Z170 black/gold schemed mATX board, two 980 Ti HYBRIDs, M.2 SSD (Samsung 950 series), water cooling with white coolant, white LED lighting. 

 

Black/red lacks subtlety.

White and black. I currently have blue and black but it's nothing special. Blue Corsair Vengeance RAM, blue accented MB, and blue lighting.

I'd buy a white H440 or a 760T, Krait edition motherboard, and white Kingston RAM. Might plastidip the PSU, GPU, and fans white too.

If I had free choice of colors, I would still do a green one. Just not many components that fit at the moment

Green and white. Not a common combination :P (i just hope it's not sport related...i wouldn't know. probably is.)

I would probably go with green and some other color (maybe green and purple), or purple and white.
