I want opinions purely based on the aesthetics of this build.

Before anyone says anything about the CPU cooler, I will be BCLK oc'ing.

If you plan on overclocking then you should look into purchasing an unlocked CPU, otherwise I have high hopes for a beautiful build! You could maybe try to go for some water cooling and get a nice looking AIO cooler to really accent the build?

The mobo is one of Asrock's hyper boards which means I can overclock the cpu using BCLK rven though it is locked. An aio would be good, I can get a h100i for £45 local that isnt opened but it wont be bought for months anyway, I will only be going for 3.8-4.1Ghz anyway.

If it's worth the price or you already have it then the MOBO sounds good to me! When it comes to water cooling with AIOs you only get so much better performance, however they are quite aesthetically pleasing so if you can get your hands on one for a similar price as an air cooler I say go for it aesthetically speaking!

I agree, but i would change the fans because i had a h100i on my old pc and it was loud as hell.

Black out, like this, I just like any build that is really nice and clean, silver/black/white is what i prefer, sick of seeing red in builds. This one too, and this
