UV lighting inside or red?



Okay, I ordered the white NZXT led strand kit. I also ordered white tubing.

Should I go all white, which looks sharp or white and red tubing? Not sure how that would look.

I really like white LED after seeing the ones that are on the back of this case. I think they will look great on the inside lighting up everything in the color tone it is meant to be in. The glowing orange tubes are cool and all, but it does not match my theme... I saw a black optimus prime once. He was black, white and red and looked really cool. That is what I am going off of. I think it was some figure or something. Want to do custom paint eventually, but have a lot to learn before attempting that. For no, I will focus on making the inside what I want.

The white and red tubing will look different, haven't seen anything like that done before - ever. I have all white tubing and it definitely is a sharp clean and somewhat sterile look and not very "fierce" or w/e you want to call it.

The tubing you currently have is user preference, it looks nice but I would change it. You have a solid idea and go with your gut feeling, cant go wrong with what ever you choose! thumb.gif

I am thinking mostly white tubing with a little splash of red thrown in there. Maybe just from the CPU to the first GPU. Not sure yet.

I just wanted to say that I really liked your build. I am thinking of buying the same case and watercooling my CPU and GPU exactly as you did. In fact with the exception of our two video cards I want pretty much exactly what you have.

Don't suppose you'd mind me PMing you with a couple questions about your WC gear for the 810 when the time comes?

Regardless it all looks really nice.

No problem. Can't wait to see your build.

I gotta say the the more I look at it the 810 looks amazing for cable management. Combined with being able to put the RAD at the bottom there I am completely sold on it. I was going to do WC in my current case but having to externally mount rads turned me off. At the same time I don't want a gigantic tower though. It looks like the 810 has got it all.

Any complaints about the case or are you completely happy with it?

Looks great, that ASRock board looks sick! Now get to building and post some photos, cant wait to see. Btw, where did you get and what brand are those 3pin fan splitters? All I can see is Gear.
