Hmm!... There's more painting with black fans/white frame. One thing I can suggest is bouncing it off your wife/partner to see what their perspective is... Helps getting a second pair of eyes actually looking at it physically...... and.....builds up your credits with them.... win/win.

LOL, I would love to, but she hates my hobbies and can't be bothered giving opinions. I've tried many times before, and she just wants me to go about my business so she can read. tongue.gif

LOL...It's a world pandemic...

I made sure I got her a Kindle and access to buy the books she needs. Although she does give me fab guidance when it comes to color matching..She actually likes that bit

Unfortunately, I'm on my own for making the colors work well together. Luckily, I think I'm doing OK so far with the accents and trim I have been painting and what not. tongue.gif Plus, having you all here to give your input and offer suggestions is helpful anyways!

I cant recall the coolant color you intend. But a matching green to your sleeving through Bitspower Chrystal Link would look good...

This would mean replacing some of the compression fittings.

I am using Mayhems Pastel Mint Green. thumb.gif I am trying to squeeze my compressions and tubing between the cards though, so I don't have 1 tiny spot of tubing in my loop. I already tested it out earlier, it's a very small tubing run, but will look fine. I just don't think I like how thin the BP Crystal Link is. Maybe if I was doing my wife's rig (My old rig/backup rig), it would look good because it is a smaller setup. I just think it would look fairly dwarfed in this setup, given that I am not cooling VRM's, chipset, ram etc. Not enough to cool to "fill it up" so to speak with the size of that stuff, ya know?

I've been experimenting with BP crystal link and its quite strong. It only needs to be installed in a straight line and secure in the fitting. Check Daniel's site.

At minimum I would paint the fan blades white.
As for losing the AP-15 clips, go to a hardware store and look for C clips. I couldn't find any E clips that small but we only have one hardware store + Lowes. I don't know the actual size, they were all mixed up in the store but I managed to find an unmarked bag with about 20 clips. If I had to take a guess I would say 1/8 or 3/16. But they were only about 17 cents a piece so if you get the wrong ones it won't be killer on the wallet.
Here is a C clip next to a #6 screw for a perspective:

If you are going to stick with white fittings for the sli then I would for sure use acrylic tube. thumb.gif
