Look in different seller's site for more robust options. You can get the mixed bloe + black packages.

Believe me, if you ever go for SLI setup, that will come handy. It's better to be safe than sorry.

What i meant was if he had a card with a 8 pin and a 6 pin he could not use the second 6 pin in the set but since his card use a single 6 pin its no problem

Yeah I found a package on another site for 34 bucks. All bitfenix stuff. I'm going to get that eventually.

When I said add a 2nd color I didn't mean black. Technically black isn't a color. Neither is white but in this type of scenario it will have the same effect (add contrast), but black wont. Use black only for the cables you are trying to hide.

ah got ya. Yeah i dont know if there is really any other color that would look at home in there. Blue/black just seems to be a logical choice.

Here's an example of contrast. Don't worry about the color scheme itself, just take in the effect a 2nd color has. Imagine this mod without the second color. It would just be a undefined blue blur, as in the second image.

Bascially when using blue cables with blue lighting, this will have a similar effect as black would, the cables won't be as visible. Hide the thinner, single cables like the HDD, Power, Reset cables with black and make the thicker cables stand out against the blue background with a second color.

Personally I would use a UV color, it will have the best effect for contrast and depth when you add UV lights.
