A very confusing post. Did you type this from a cell phone or do you have something against punctuation marks and paragraph formatting?

I cannot tell from your post if you are saying you are indifferent about Kaby Lake and just might go with an old technology Haswell Pentium or if you are intending to wait for Zen to come out.

It sounds like you already have some of the components but I'm not sure if I'm reading that correctly or if so, which ones you already have. The only thing that is actually clear to me about what you said was that you don't have a case yet but would like one with a window that would match red fans.

Is English your first language?

It is very tough to read, this post... I agree. But I would get an SSD for your OS for sure. That's about all I can make out of it though, lol.

Potential, A few things from your First post:

Cases only matter in two areas for a first time build; Motherboard compatibility, and aesthetic preference.

In your case(no pun intended), you are still undecided for your motherboard due to the fact you are waiting for the Ryzen chips that are close to release(About 1-3 months)

I think it would be perfectly acceptable to go with the current midrange champions, which would net you 2-4 years of good use.

What kind of room do you have for a case footprint?(Width, height, depth limits)

Do you like very large and heavy cases that have large, quiet fans?(240+mm fans)

Do you want a case that supports easy access to components?

Do you want Full ATX motherboard sizes?(That limits you to mid towers and above)

There are a few other things, but lets get these questions answered first so we have something tangible to work with.

And also cooler options.

the corsair carbide air 540 is a bit higher in price but, I find it is a very nice case to build in. easy for my old eyes to see in, my ham sized fists can reach into it, has good airflow, fits almost all coolers, long graphics cards fit, custom water loops are a bit of a challenge to plan though.
it also has a nice sized window and comes in white and black.

8 gigs of ram is plenty to start out with and you can add more if you really need to.

here is a pick of mine.
