I finally broke down and built myself a new machine this year after 12 years on my x58 platform (10 years with the i7 990x, first two were the i7 920D).  I'm loving everything about this build, from the 'clean room' look all the way down to the custom backplate and GPU support bracket I ordered from coldzero.eu.

    Your build is very well done.  I really like it and it has an understated elegance to it.  Congrats!
     
    BTW, I think @rjohnson11 wants to do a white build one of these days.

    Thanks guys. The upgrade has been a looooooong time coming (and I have had loads of time to “window shop” other peoples ideas to get inspiration). I feel like I went a little overboard with the Corsair light towers and the color shifting to red when warzone launches.

    But I’m having fun and it is enjoyable to look at on my desk in between lives / rounds.

    I also enjoyed my X58 system for a long time, and was shocked at just how much of an improvement it was to jump to an X99 motherboard.  You must be extremely impressed with the performance improvements at every level now.  Nicely done.

    Very nice looking build! It's exactly like you described " clean room look". I really like the lighting in your gaming area. +1
     
    Looks like MR is broken AGAIN. Pictures are broken, can't leave a comment. I wish EVGA would get this fixed.
