Any tips on how i can improve my Black/White theme

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
My theme for my Computer is black/White i have a corsair 800D, I have a total of 9 fans currently in the system they all are Xigmatek black fans with white Led's. I am wondering if there are any tips for improving my theme with the system, i was thinking of replacing some of the fans with the NZXT black shroud fans with white fan blades

aesthetically, some cable management might make a bigger difference

1. Put electrical tape on the blue LEDs.
2. Sleeve your cables.
3. Disassemble and paint your 6950.

Less leds, add a well placed white cathode.

Those are nice fans. FYI, they seem a little noisier when horizontal than when they're vertically installed.
