Black or white s340 elite for my build

The system I planned will be using an msi z170a mpower gaming titanium, which as the name suggests, has a silver color to it. I plan on getting to s340 elite for my build but don't know which color to get. Most builds in the white one usually use a black mobo and it looks pretty good. I don't know how it would work with the mobo I plan to use though. Any thoughts on which one I should choose?

 

For a rough idea on how it would look, I'll be using a Cryorig h7 as the cpu cooler, corsair lpx ram and probably an asus strix rx480.

I think the White case looks nicer, but I'm just a sucker for white NZXT cases. See if you can get some white RAM to go with it, and maybe pair the build off with an MSI Armor X card (black-and-white cooler) and some aftermarket power supply cables/cable extensions.

I'm a sucker for a white case too. kinda something like the krait (this one is a white mobo if I recall right or has some white on it). and the msi armor card, the white seasonic psu and aftermarket cable/extension that are white. some black and white rams and if you ever think of custom water cooling, adv lrt black and white tubes would be kick ass. damn wanna build one now sadly cash ain't on my side.

Live your life like a dream.

Instead of the S340 elite take a real good case like the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Tempered Glass.

Sadly, Phanteks cases are not available here in my country.

That sucks. The s340 elite has a couple issues though:

 

- PSU dust filter is still not great

- no option to put airflow through your storage drives, cooling is important for the longevity of an HDD

- still that bendy metal bar instead of rubber gromets for cable management

 

How about a Corsair 400C? It still has the full window and has the things the S340 doesn't.

The case is like, around 30 usd (translated from my currency) more expensive than the s340 elite. What I find strange is that the s340 elite in my country is cheaper than the us msrp of 100 usd when translated into my currency. I also prefer tempered glass, I'm very paranoid of scratches.

Yeah grab an s340 then. It's not without its flaws but that's every case out there. For instance my beloved Enthoo Pro M doesn't support oversized motherboards, and the S340 does with a bit of modding.
