Anyone cane buy high end hardware to throw into a case, but making it look good is the challenge! thumb.gif

Thanks. I've been pondering it since my switch 810 obsession started LOL. Believe me I know all about trying to make it look good. In the past year and some since I really started to care I have switched most all my components several times keeping only my SSD, CPU and PSU throughout the process. I love my board and I like my build theme at the moment but blue has been done 1000000000000x. This is what I will be switching to once the yellow commences. Pure Sexy.



actually. I put in my first order yesterday. Only 3 of these badboys were left in Canada so I HAD TO snag them up! Hopefully I will have my order go in with Aquatuning early october.

Yessss, please do a good looking yellow build that way when we play sc I will know me both have bad ass rigs. That mono is tight! And that pastel yellow is too biggrin.gif

In was thinking of black originally with green and white,the more I thought about it I don't think I wanted 2 do 3 colors because it just doesn't look as good as two, so then what I was thinking of 2 colors so many people that have a Gigabyte sniper bored all have black and green sleevying, so it goes back to what you said about being original biggrin.gif

That is a possibility but I was planning to have just cables, fans, and tubing yellow. That's only yellow I wanted and I want it to POP. But that might be too much yellow and in that case the titanium grey would be great.

Go with mostly black and grey with a splash of yellow for the sleeve. Solid color yellow would look tacky

I think 3 colors CAN look good but it is just very hard to pull off. It's much easier to color coordinate for 2 colors. Lookin forward to seeing how yours turns out.

a funny side note if you google simply "x com" MDPC X International will come up 3rd or 4th in the search smile.gif

I would have been ordering more parts already but this moving business is really sucking. We transferred from an apartment to a townhouse with a backyard recently through a large rental company. It has been total hell since we moved here dealing with this company. It is a major downgrade when it was in fact supposed to be an upgrade to our quality of life but it is not, so we will be moving yet again around 45 days from when we moved into this place, which is at the end of this month. CANT WAIT to start getting more toys. biggrin.gif

Yes I will likely order 3 colors just so I have choices. I really need to see it in person to know how it will look and this is the best route. biggrin.gif

This is my first time sleeving anything and I would say for me it took about 5 min per cable (give or take). Once you get a system down you might be able to do it faster. Took me the most time initially to get those cables out but now I can get them out easily using the extractor tool.

Still working on my first sleeving task posted a couple pics a few pages back nothing great but makes me feel good. Started with just a little sleeve and and spare cables to make sure I don't waste money and time if I cant get it done. About to order more today.

Update - I'm sleeving a Seasonic X-1050 PSU and would have to either order or make my own CPU power cable as the one that came with the PSU is not long enough to reach without an extension.

Thanks for your input!

How long would you say it would take to sleeve all the cables to the psu?

Granted you only need mobo cables, video card, drives and not every one in the bag.

Trying to weight out the pros and cons of sleeving myself as to buying the Corsair single color sleeves..

Does anyone in Artisan sell cables already sleeved?

As far as design it's really easy to pull off three or more colors. You just need to know how to create contrast and follow the less is more rule. It's technology, so brushed metal and black always rule and then you take your colors.

I have an Android app called I Love Color that I use a ton, has some very nice pallets there.

MDPC has some inasanely good looking yellow sleeve. You could do a mix of titanium grey or shade 19, and then the yellow. I think you've got a great idea going on here. Aesthetic quality and a build that's good to look at, are, in my opinion, much better than a bunch of hardware thrown in. Anyone cane buy high end hardware to throw into a case, but making it look good is the challenge! thumb.gif
