That's an interesting looking case. I'm not much into PC themes (I just have a plain Corsair 800D, kinda the black tie of cases) but I'm digging the army green.

If money is not an issue I would avoid the H100 and invest in a custom loop instead. That way you can have some fun with coloured tubing and/or use antifreeze to add a neat glow. Do not use any sort of special coolant or dye, they don't work well.

Mushkin has a lineup of SDRAM which is radioactive themed so it might go better than the Vengeance. It comes in both JEDEC standard and XMP enhanced flavors.

Standard 9-9-9-24 @ 1.5 volts

Enhanced 7-9-8-24 @ 1.65 volts

As far as I know these are otherwise identical to the Mushkin Redline modules but with a different coloured heatspreader. Only the JEDEC standard profiles are officially supported by Intel

Thankyou for your suggestion but i am not too confident on doing the custom loop .

if you are doing a military themed case... then you absolutely must look into zapwizard's ammunition case pc. if you dont, you are missing out!

if you were watercooling,i wouldve recommended the corsair dominator gt ram..because you can use a waterblock on them...so you can paint the waterblock and make it army themed...it will much more army style if you had watercooled your pc and used uv reactive dye's and coolant..maybe the mayhem's x1 or mayhem's dye..they do clog up your loop specially the dye...dye;s will surety stain on your watercooling products..but you are getting all the cool looks..imo you have chosen the right motherboard and case..

The 680 is a hose job seeing how the 670 runs head to head with it, 16GB of RAM for a gaming build is insane and you shorted yourself with your SSD.
