Black & white build with ASUS Maximus XI Code Z390?

So I am planning to do a build soon. I am planning to go with a black and white theme. I will get custom cables from from Cablemod to fit my theme. I think I will get a graphics card with white shroude as well.  


Following are the parts I am planning on getting:


i9 9900k

RTX 2080Ti

ASUS Maximus Code Z390

970 Pro 1TB


My first question is, do you guys think this motherboard will look good in a black and white build? Also, what case do you think will my fit my theme with this motherboard?

It's fine as long as you keep the RGB lights to white, just changing their brightness.

A few things,

First I like the processor, but wait for the 400 series boards to come out. MSI makes these really nice artic boards, they look very nice. But no that board will ruin your theme in my opinion.

Second, Galax makes some really nice white GPU's, I would wait for their 2080ti. Galax makes really nice products. However if your going to water cool just get any 2080ti and slap a block on it. 

The PC 0-11 Dynamic by Lian-LI is very nice, Especially if your water cooling, which if I were you I would.

When are 400 series motherboards coming out? I would assume Q3 2019, since Z390 just came out?
