I am going to be doing a militarized theme for my next build and it is going to focus on minimal use of lighting.

The case with be the Corsair Vengeance C70 (military green), with the tan and green Thermalright fans (will put one of these fans on my Grand Macho RT), and last, but not least I will be using G.Skill Sniper X RAM (3600Mhz) Original camo variant.

In the past Asus use to make their TUF series as well as their Sabertooth boards with a brown theme, but I have been striking out trying to find a board. It doesn't have to match exactly (all black would be the worst case scenerio), but can anyone possibly point me in the right direction? Have a listing of the new i7 boards even been released yet?

I loved the camo look and finish of the original Xpower Titanium boards newer ones are still gorgeous but they dropped the camo look. You can also look at the TUF boards with the armor (Sabertooth and Formula), you can take off the armor and camo it yourself.

Other past options ....

I agree with @Toothless
Because from the looks of it, it looks like there will be a Z390 chipset.
