MOBO colors
« on: July 21, 2010, 12:07:23 AM »

I'm currently working on a computer that is going to be mostly green and black, and I really wanted a green motherboard. I looked around for hours trying to find a green motherboard that was within my price range. Am I the only one who really wants to see more colored motherboards?

I would love to see more colored motherboards personally, I've had this problem before while looking for a black one back in the day when most motherboards were green. Now it seems like they're all red or tan.

When you're asking for a green one, are you talking about the base board, or are you talking about the colors of the slots too?

I'd love to see one in plaid.  Not that I would buy it, but that'd just be cool.

Lol plaid  :P. I'll take mine in pure white kinda like the old soyo platinum boards back in the day but with white slots. Um Intel/Biostar were the only ones I remembered still sticking to the green theme everything is now red/black/blue like urgannagru said.

I would like to think some of the evga/xfx boards would work nicely for your color theme check them out

Actually the last EVGA board I bought was green with black slots, but my problem with them is that they only make Intel motherboards (last I checked) :( Otherwise, they're my preferred vendor.

yeah, I'm getting my video card from EVGA and PSU from XFX. they do green color schemes pretty well. I'll look into their mobo's as well. and I'd love a board with green slots and green heatsinks on the north/south bridge's. I'm not too concerned with the base board, but green or black would be nice.

EDIT: I looked into it, and XFX makes some black and green boards that would be sexy as hell, but I can't find any AMD boards that'll work with the CPU I've got picked out (Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 125W). I've always used AMD, so could someone give me an idea of what that compares to for an Intel chip in case I decide to go for Intel on this one just for the color?
