I’m calling this build Respiro, the Italian word for breath as I am breathing new life into some very old components. My wife is also Italian and she helped me decide on the white version of the 275r ; )
I recently upgraded my i5 4690k with a used i7 4790k instead of getting a new motherboard and DDR4 ram. With that purchase I decided to get a new case and use my old ATX motherboard, which I had stored for 4 years. I had been using a mini ITX board for the i5, but I recently broke the pins on the front usb 3.0 connector. This was done in an attempt to better manage the cables, something I always struggled with in the ITX case. A mid tower ATX was appealing for this reason, and it allowed me to use my old ATX motherboard.
I really wish my ram was white instead of blue. My last build was blue so I bought this crazy blue ram and I can’t justify spending $100 on white colored ram, but I think that would pull things together a lot better. I'd also like to get some rgb halo fans, like the LL series from Corsair, but the prices are crazy.
