NZXT founder Johnny Hou joined us at the PCPartPicker office to show off the new Hue+ software controlled lighting controller. It's a pretty sweet add-on that lets you add configurable RGB LED strips to your build.
We're working on adding in part list support for the Hue+ here on PCPartPicker. In the meantime, you can find the Hue+ here:

Join us Thursday 2pm Central time for our weekly live stream, where we'll be putting together Jenny's office build.
After a few (rather expensive, cough) gaming and rendering systems, it's time to build a more modest system for general office and productivity software use. Jenny handles our retailer relationships, and with the move to the new office we wanted to put together a new system for her. She's not an avid gamer, so we decided to skip external graphics and go with the CPU on-board GPU chipset instead. However, we didn't want it to be a plain ugly box, so we spent a bit more for the nice Silverstone case. Here's the full part list:
|CPU||Intel Core i3-4350 3.6GHz Dual-Core Processor||$151.98 @ Newegg|
|CPU Cooler||CRYORIG C1 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler||Already had on-hand|
|Motherboard||Gigabyte GA-H97N-WIFI Mini ITX LGA1150 Motherboard||$112.00 @ B&H|
|Memory||Kingston HyperX Fury White 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory||$46.99 @ Amazon|
|Storage||Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive||$84.89 @ OutletPC|
|Case||Silverstone FT03S-MINI Mini ITX Tower Case||$142.08 @ Amazon|
|Power Supply||Silverstone 300W 80+ Bronze Certified SFX Power Supply||$48.99 @ SuperBiiz|
|Keyboard||Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Desktop Bluetooth Wireless Slim Keyboard w/Laser Mouse||$79.98 @ Amazon|
