Interesting Color Combinations?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody.
I am looking for some interesting, but still good-looking color combinations so I can start some modding on my HAF X
I prefer 2 colors, but am always open to more if the idea sounds good.
I really like Black and White, and I don't see tooooo many cases having it, but it does seem a bit plain.
I also like Black and Red, but mostly with Red LED fans and a complete black case, as a completely painted Red part wouldn't look too good in my HAF X, I think...
Anyway it would be great if someone could help me
At the moment my personal favorite is Black and White, so give me some good ideas
Thanks in advance

Check out Gigabyte's display HAFX from this yr's Computex:



If you're not into the military styling, You could substitute the flat green with a glossy gunmetal paint job, then leave some black accents and add red lighting.

Im doing a chrome finish with UV Blue lighting on mine.

I think Orange and black would look sweet especially if you wanted to paint a design. You could even add some white highlighting for a Halloween look. Damn now I wish that I had done that lol.

I like black, with a couple stripes of yellow. Something like a 1:3-1:5 ratio.

But for my rig, I am probably going to do electric blue and gray paracord.

Go for something a bit different than what has already been done:
My recommendation - Vanilla Sands and Aquamarine sleeving from MDPC-x
Vanilla Sands
Aquamarine

These would match your components very well and give you a more unique look. Combine with white led fans -
XIGMATEK Cooling System XLF XLF-F1256 120mm LED Blue Case Fan


I would also paint the shrouds on your GPU's to get rid of the red.
Top it off with a custom sticker for the psu: Custom psu sticker thread
It's so little!

Great idea
I love how you looked at my components and made up your mind due to that
It would be quite expensive though, to replace all my fans with those blue ones, but I won't do it too soon anyway, so until then I might've saved up a little
Thank you
