Hey guys,

I thought of turning to you experienced minds to help me with a theme I need to happen.

As the title suggests I want a black and gold colour scheme happening for this build (LEDs included). That means black/gold tower, motherboard, ram, graphics card, etc. Even peripherals.

I've got a $1500 budget. Games I primarily play are CS:GO (main game so specs for this please), Arms 3, SQUAD and Insurgency. Show me what you masterminds have got!!

There is a gold heatsink (PH-TC14PE_GD) but its only available in Europe.

There is a gold case but its quite expensive..

You can either use yellow or orange led fans for this build. For this one I used yellow led fans. Also there is one extra 120mm fan included to replace the one on the heatsink.

Didn't include peripherals..

I'm in Europe, wanting to make a PC. And you bet I fell in love with that cooler now. I may actually steal this idea... :B

Should it fit in a spec-03?

The heatsink is 171mm tall

and the spec-03 has a cpu clearance of 157mm so no...

I feel like the i5 might be overkill for his games :-/ but I also feel like its a good thing to have should he want to play some heavier games

Looking at the specs for the games you play I think this is overkill, didn't put peripherals in but it has a very nice (albeit expensive) mobo and case, video card and all around black and gold themed build for you.

Hey Guys,

Thank you all so much for your ideas! I will definitely take them all in to consideration once I get my build underway, I appreciate it.
