Do you want it to stand out or blend in the background where your work can be forgotten about?

Have you seen this build log? How can his work ever be forgotten? rolleyes.gif

Anyway I would make it stand out by using an asymmetrical pattern rather then by using another third colour. I don't think the point is to make this cable the focal point of the entire build... wink.gif

We think a lot alike. I believe I'm a bigger fan of asymmetrical patterns. Although both can look good.

I really like the CWWCWWCWWCC, and the ones suggested by CiBi just have too much white for me, but remember, it's your build, make it to where you like it, not us. :)

I've narrowed it down to four finalists. It's just two different designs...but colors are flipped on each one of them. #1 and #2 are an asymetrical design that reminds me of the stripe going down the side of football pants. #3 and #4 are an asymetrical design for the OCD inclined. Decided to stick with just 2 colors, crimson and white, and not throw a different color in at this point. Here they are:

#1




#2



#3



#4



Here are the same 4...but in the case:

#1




#2




#3




#4





Before I took the case shots...I thought I was leaning towards #2. But after I took these case shots....I'm thinking I like the ones with the red on the outside edges of of the connector. It frames the cable a little better. Because I don't really have an option on the two white USB 3.0 cables that are right beside them, and the white background of the case...I think the 24pin looks better with some red on the edges. So I'm leaning towards # 1 or #3. But like I mentioned previously...I'm kind of an asymetrical guy. Still contemplating.....

Thanks for all the input!

#3 gets my vote! It looks outstanding with the other sleeving around it. I personally like the look of having the same outside colors on multi pin cables that are close to one another, to keep uniformity. thumb.gif Plus, if you go from 24 pin, to sata, to 6 pin GPU cables, it goes crimson, white, crimson white...over and over...looks lovely that way.

I'm partial to #3, for the exact reasons you listed. There's already a lot of white surrounding the cables and the USB header is also white. Plus the RAM somewhat gets highlighted by having the cable prominently crimson.

Also I feel like the clump of white in #1 is off-putting because all your other sleeved clusters have 1 white cable at most.

#3 for me thumb.gif

That would be Hayley Williams. :) Also, #1 or #3 gets my vote.

By the way Chris, are you keeping the 690's air cooled? If so, you should think about free hand painting the green GeForce GTX logos to Crimson or White. I think it would look outstanding! 2cents.gif

Maybe do one with the white cluster only being 3 cables instead of 4, and bump the CW combo up?

So: CCWWWCWCCCCC

or even CCWWCWCCCCCC

(both of these may have been mocked up, but there have been so many variants already so I can't remember)
