Black & White themed Crystal 570x RIG

Hi guys!

Today I started my 2017 black & white themed build.
I'd like to share this build with you guys to hear your ideas on what I can improve or should do differently.

The specs for the build will be the following:
Case: Corsair Crystal 570X RGB
MB: Asus Prime Z270-A
CPU: Intel i5 7600k
CPU Cooling: Corsair H100i V2
RAM: Corsair Vengeance White LED 2x 8GB DDR4 2666MHz
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC2 Gaming
SSD: Samsung 250GB 960 EVO M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD
PSU: Corsair RM550x

This is what I have gotten so far.


















I will replace the standard corsair cables with cablemods in the near future aswell but this will have to do till then
I was kind of amazed at how small the NVMe was lol
Also, do any of you guys have any tips on how to get that hidious USB 3.0 cable out of the way?
Let me know what you guys guys think so far!

Those USB 3 double cables are really bulky and ugly.

The only thing I can think of would be to not connect it and run a USB 3 cable from the I/O on the back of the case to a small USB3 Hub on your desk? I did that on my daughters PC for the same reason.

Indeed they look really ugly, is there a way to get rid of it altogether or should I hide it in the black plate for the cable boom? Also if you look closely you can see I ran the front audio cable up through the back of MB because there's no other way in this case other than just running it out the front. I hope this isn't going to be a problem?

Thanks Blade!
