Still need to paint the case parts, but I have the whole build assembled and the RGB looks great! Had a max budget of $1500, bought all my parts on Black Friday, cost about $1600 with shipping and tax (and haven't yet mailed in the rebates). Going to use this build primarily for gaming and some art programs (Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.). Runs GREAT, 200+ frames, Ultra quality. Beautiful. Case wire management was amazing, easy to keep everything neat and orderly. CPU cooler is so quiet, it's unnoticeable. The RAM sticks are gorgeous and respond perfectly to the ASUS Aura Sync software. The GPU struggles to keep up with the RGB settings, and the colors aren't matching correctly, but the GPU runs great and I have no complaints. The case LED strips weren't compatible with the MOBO's RGB header, but I figured I'd be using the case's controls anyway because all the reviews I read said they weren't as bright with the Aura Sync software. It's quiet, beautiful, and the monitor is lovely as well, with the wonderful choice of DVI, HDMI, or DisplayPort. I'm in love. A little girl's dream came true today.
