One of my favorite boards is the ASUS Z370 PRIME -A. With the release of the Z370 chipset and new 8th gen Coffe Lake CPUs I decided to put together a build based on this board and with it having white as part of its color scheme it helped to set the tone for what would be a white themed build. I really like white themed builds especially with RGB as they offer reflection for lighting as opposed to the absorption that occurs with black builds.
As I worked with a number of partners to get the components together I was not focusing on a specific price point but did want to try and keep things realistic in regards to the components used in the build.
Before we get into the specifics of each one of the components the overall build experience I do want to touch on RGB. One key item to note is RGB lighting and SYNC. I wanted all the lighting to be able to be controlled and synced from a single application. For this, I planned on using ASUS AURA and its SYNC functionality. This is built into ASUS series motherboard on a hardware, firmware and software level. Whether it be the onboard lighting, RGB header connectivity or syncing / control of supported items you have an easily streamlined experience for defining the look and feel of your RGB enabled components.
So let's get into it.
