Just read the thread so far, not sure if I want to laugh, cry or do a little dance. I'll sub whilst I decide...

Awesome work, glad the radiator turned out OK. They obviously use a solder with a melting point above 400°F.

Seeker's build log is a fun read. Lots of interaction from lots of people.

I'd suggest doing a little dance, video taping it, and posting for all us to see. Thanks for the kind words, GingerJohn!

Yes. I think that Axis, asg, hyperlite and b-negative have some of the coolest active builds going right now. I've stolen, er....borrowed..., many ideas from all of these.

Crimson!
post #108 of 3982
Thread Starter 
Would like everyone's help with fan color combinations. Since I've settled on the Noiseblocker, and settled on white radiators, I can use my sample fans in different color combinations and see how they look...both on the radiator, and in the case. I've got three colors to play with (crimson, white and black), and each fan could have the frame and blades painted separately. That gives me 9 possible combinations:

(blades on frame)
1. white on crimson
2. black on white
3. white on black
4. crimson on white
5. black on crimson
6. white on white
7. crimson on black
8. black on black (as purchased)
9. crimson on crimson

Here are some individual shots of each of the nine cominations, in this same order:

1. white on crimson
400


2. black on white
400


3. white on black
400


4. crimson on white
400


5. black on crimson
400


6. white on white
400


7. crimson on black
400


8. black on black (as purchased)
400


9. crimson on crimson
400



Now here is how they look on the white radiator (from left to right).

(blades on frame)
1. white on crimson
2. black on white
3. white on black
4. crimson on white
400



5. black on crimson
6. white on white
7. crimson on black
400


8. black on black (as purchased)
9. crimson on crimson
400



Now here is how they look on the white radiator, with the crimson case showing (from left to right).

(blades on frame)
1. white on crimson
2. black on white
3. white on black
4. crimson on white
433


5. black on crimson
6. white on white
7. crimson on black
436


8. black on black (as purchased)
9. crimson on crimson
435


For the fans in front of the case, the frame doesn't really show, so its just the blades to consider. Here is a shot of all 3 possible blade colors inside the case:

With the case front cover off:
700


With the case front cover on:
700


Now before you vote on one, let me tell you why I think I want to eliminate some combinations. First off, I love the little black rubber corner pieces, and I think they look especially sharp and stand out if the frame is a color OTHER THAN BLACK. So....if I don't want a black frame, that would eliminate three options below (#3, #7, and #8):

(blades on frame)
1. white on crimson
2. black on white
3. white on black
4. crimson on white
5. black on crimson
6. white on white
7. crimson on black
8. black on black (as purchased)
9. crimson on crimson


I also really like having contrast between the frame and blades. I think it looks better when they are not both the same color. So....if I don't want the blades and frame to be the same color, that would eliminate two more options (#6 and #9):

(blades on frame)
1. white on crimson
2. black on white
3. white on black
4. crimson on white
5. black on crimson
6. white on white
7. crimson on black
8. black on black (as purchased)
9. crimson on crimson


So I'm left with just 4 possible combinations, and I really love each one of these. I could choose to do them all the same, or I could mix it up. Out of these four that are left, I would really like to know what you think looks best.

(blades on frame)
1. white on crimson
2. black on white
4. crimson on white
5. black on crimson

There is a part of me that wants to paint the blades....just because I feel like I'm doing something. But there is also a part of me that wonders if the translucent look of the black blades would be cool with all of the lighting I'm going to have inside of the case.

Can't wait to see what you think! Vote by #, or by description (blades on frame). I should receive my fans in the mail tomorrow, so I need to be busy painting this weekend. I appreciate in advance your opinions!

For me it is either 1 or 4.

Reasons:

I don't like the translucent blades, and when they are spinning the solid colours will look fairly translucent anyway.
There needs to be some colour in there - white on white on white on white is boring


For 1 - The red, sorry crimson, stands out a bit more there.
For 4 - The stationary parts are white (rad, case and frame), the moving parts crimson.

It would be hard to mix up the colouring without it looking messy, so I would be tempted to stick to one colour scheme (assuming all the rads are the same colour).

Thoughtful reasoning. Much appreciated.
