Post First build: modded shinobi XL, 2x7970 watercooled, 3930k.

My first ever PC build and I've decided to go all out. My rig contains the following:
-i7 3930k
-2 x 7970 (both reference, one is sapphire and the other HIS)
-ASUS X79 Sabertooth
-Corsair AX850
-Bitfenix Shinobi XL
-Intel 120GB 330 SSD
-ty corsair 16GB ram @1333 (planning to upgrade)

As for the watercooling part of my build I've got:
-XSPC rasa 750
-XSPC RC 360
-XSPC RX 360
-Koolance D5 variable
-BitsPower pump mod kit and pump top
-heatkiller full nickle water blocks and back plates.
-Primochill PrimoFlex advanced LTR
-haven't purchased fittings yet, getting black Bitspower ones though.

I had this rig running before just with a CPU loop and one 7970 and then i decided to upgraded and mod. I managed to get my 3930K to 5GHZ at 1.45v. Since then I've taken out the hard-drive rack, optical bay slots. I placed a false floor, covered up the cutout where the hard-drive bay use to be and put in a PSU shroud (very Orca inspired). Ive tried to get a black and gold theme running throughout my build and now all that's left to decide is whether i get gold coolant and Dominator platinum RAM or do it get gold RAM and just run clear coolant?

I know you are going X79 and already have the MOBO and CPU but I had to link you to this...

Looks really nice mate
But this isn't really a Project Log. Project logs are logs in which you post updates of your system slowly coming together. Finished builds should be in the Rig Gallery.
But then again, I'm a huge fan of the Shinobi XL, and I love your build.

I'd say platinum ram and clear coolant with an amber led in the loop to make it glow gold
