Default Making a Black build, parts help wanted

I am saving up for a new build and I decided I want a completely black build, Kingston just came out with their black series of RAM, so I will be using a form of that, but I am having problems finding a good mobo thats black, amd or intel is fine. This will be a high end gaming rig. Thank for reading and have an awesome day.

Need a budget.

Kingston doesn't have their black PCB kits on the market yet. Their Beast RAM and HyperX Black have green PCBs.

Hypothetical setup. Extreme high end gaming in mind, with HyperX Beast green PCB as placement holder.

CPU:
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K - Newegg.com

Motherboard:
ASRock Z77 Extreme6 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

RAM:
Kingston HyperX Beast 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX16C9T3K2/16X - Newegg.com

GPU:
Geforce TITAN when available

PSU:
SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

Case:
Corsair Obsidian Series 650D (CC650DW-1) Black Steel structure with black brushed aluminum faceplate ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Newegg.com

SSD+HDD:
Newegg.com - Corsair Neutron Series GTX 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 Internal Hard Drive - Newegg.com

Optical: (Option of this, BD, or none)
LITE-ON Model iHAS124-04 DVD Burner - Bulk Black - Newegg.com

Cooler:
CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Water Cooler - Newegg.com

After OS and shipping should be around 2500.

I'll mention this though. The Corsair Dominator kits all have black PCBs, and the Beast kit when installed you cannot see the green PCB. I'll also say, that depending on how long you wait to get some money pricing and availability will change.

I like the build ideas, but I want a completely BLACK build, so when the black hyper x comes out i will use that because the pcb is black, I dont plan on getting a Titan, and it is out, but i was looking for a completely black mobo.

Why not a Titan? It's the fastest single GPU on the market. You're going to have a hard time making absolutely everything completely black unless you dig out the paint. If that's the case, might as well buy what you want and do some custom work.

Also, the HyperX kits aren't completely black. They have stuff on them that isn't black, most noticeably is a white sticker that can't be taken off unless you want to void the warranty. I own a Beast kit myself and the other version is going to be the exact same thing besides having a black PCB. Example from my own rig.



AFAIK they don't make any motherboard that is 100% completely black, nor a video card that is 100% completely black. The PCBs for these boards are actually dark brown.

This may be a rather silly question, but what good is having EVERYTHING black, to include a black case that you can't see anything in? Are you going to have a clear case to show it all off in?
