More lighting test after a quick fill and test boot to make sure everything was working. It wasn't really so I'm glad I did so before slotting in the real CPU. Don't mind the red heatsink, its just a temporary wifi card before I plug in my PC to my LAN.
I just wanted to note the importance of characterizing each RGB strip you may use and how spending some time matching the colors can improve the look especially if you want a white color without using RGBW strips.
For example, this is how my buiild illuminates itself with everything set to "white" (255,255,255) however you can see that the strips for ambient lighting are a bit greeny/bluey (seen most obviously on the VRM heatsink in the back), whereas the GPU strips are casting a very noticeable blue color onto the PSU shroud. On the otherhand the illumination of the motherboard ("Crosshair" text on the i/o shield) look okay.
So adjusting the GPU strips to (255, 197, 80) and the ambient strips to (255, 197, 160) while leaving the motherboard LEDS (255,255,255). I feel I was able to achieve a much more aesthetically pleasing balanced white illumination around the chassis.
