+ Total (Deutschland):
The name for this build comes from a currently airing tv anime series. You should watch it, it is really good! I used the color scheme from the main character for the lightning.
For 2017, I decided to make something in white and black so I sold my Define R5 and H80i AIO and bought a S3450 Elite in white, a Kraken x52, some NZXT Aer RGB fans together with a Hue+.
To play VR games decently, I used an Intel Core i5 6600K with the potential to overclock it in the future. An overclocked Asus GeForce GTX 1080 8GB ROG STRIX should be enough to play VR Games on an HTC Vive.
I got the Asus Z170-A because of the nice aesthetics. It supports SLI and my 3000mhz RAM. Furthermore, it has a very nice BIOS and good overclocking capabilities. The USB-C port makes it a bit future-proof.
The Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB RAM is cheap (at the end of 2016 not so cheap anymore), fast and very stable on 3000mhz. It looks good because its all black. I got the RAM on sale, so I saved a few bucks here.
The Samsung 850 EVOs are very fast SSDs with perfect performance for the money. The 250GB for the system, the 500GB for games. Most of my storage is on my 24TB NAS, so I do not need a lot of storage.
I chose the Corsair RM750x because its fully modular, black and white and has enough power for a second graphics-card.
Very capable processor.
Pros: - easy to install - very sleek design - mirror effect - software controlled - sexy
Cons: - quality control, you have to be lucky to get a working/non crooked one
Overall very nice motherboard with nothing to criticize and a reasonable price.
Pros: - looks beautiful - rgb lighting - performance
Cons: - not 2x8-Pin - louder under heavy load than a Zotac - 2 DP
Pros: - silent - nice cable management - relatively cheap for a tempered glass case - perfect build quality
Fully modular and third party sleeved cable support. Dead silent and a good price performance ratio.
