Need some ideas!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I am in the midst of modding my current setup to a sort of "earth-tone military style" theme. I picked up an Asus Sabertooth Z77 board with the TUF armor, which looks fantastic. I also sleeved my entire PSU with alternating olive drab and tan Paracord. It is coming along nicely but I have a question for everybody: what should I do for fans and lighting? (I should mention that this is all being build inside of a Xigamatek Elysium, which will eventually get painted, once I decide how I want to do that.)

Anyways, back to fans and lights. What fans would you recommend that would fit the theme? Would it be easier the just buy plain old black ones and paint them green or something? What about lights? I don't think I want super bright LEDs since the theme is earthy and dark.

Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

Have you seen the "camo" paracord? Sounds like it might fit well in your color scheme.

Yea, I chose not to go with the camo. All the sleeving is done anyways though and that is not something i want to do again in the near future...

I think a very dim red lighting scheme would look nice. Kind of like a dark room in a photo lab or the way movies portray inside of military chopper or apc before a bunch of badass commandos get dropped off.

Personally I hate LED fans that have a clear frame and blades. They look way too bright. I would paint the fans and case black or even that military olive green. Then I would tint the LED bulbs darker.
