How much do you try to get your build to match?

When I built my last PC, it wasn't too much of a focus... In fact, I don't think I had any matching parts, other than a Corsair case and PSU.

This time around, I went with Corsair case, fans, PSU, and CPU cooler and I chose a red motherboard as well as red RAM (My PSU is also red, so that worked out well, lol) and I have red rings on all of my fans.

Curious to know if anyone else goes out of their way to make their builds match.

Not at all. Only if something is really ugly, then I try to avoid buying it. The best quality part at the lowest price gets my money most of the time. It's all inside of the case anyways.

Not at all for me, I don't even tie cables or worry about air flow.

Pretty much this. I think if most of you saw the case that holds my pc components you'd probably throw up...

I know this is a joke post, but it doesn't make sense... We like clean builds...
