Fast. Quiet. Pretty. That was the goal! This is the first computer I had built for myself in six years, and I was rather excited to challenge myself with a colour scheme I thought would be a bit different from the usual fare, but I was actually inspired by a couple of completed builds on this very site, in particular one completed by thefishkid1. Another user on this site, Gigglerump, actually beat me to the punch recently in combining some of these parts. =)

A few specific notes on the parts...

Yes, those are the all-white PH-F140 fans attached to the PH-TC14PE_BK, which ship with fans that have black blades. I was able to purchase this configuration without needing to buy the fans separately. You'll notice it takes up a lot of room, thus making low-profile modules a necessity if using all four slots. The Galaxy GTX 770 HOF, aside from looking stunning, is still very quiet even at load.

I am still in the market for a new monitor; afterwards I will post pictures of the entire workstation.

Prices listed were sub-totals as purchased. Feedback is appreciated!

Love that 770. Probably going to regret getting a pny instead of the galaxy.

Imagine how good it would look front and center inside of a Bitfenix Prodigy!

I regret getting a pair of PNY 780s two months ago because if I had stuck with EVGA, I could have used the "step up" program to trade them in for 780ti's at no extra cost. I'm out of luck as it is right?

Looks amazing, not a big fan of ledstrips but still looks great!

Thank you! Unfortunately I don't think my camera did the lighting justice, but this build is what convinced me to use some white LEDs. Also, the NZXT strip has adjustable intensity and a button to turn them off. =)

it might be late but your middle fan seems to be pointing at different directions than your first fan
