Agree, black acrylic of about 2-3mm thick will do the job. Nothing to crazy to make:

decided to paint the mesh and grills to match my build. plastic grills white and the mesh aluminium to match the z170 deluxe inside. Aploagies for the potato pics (taken on my nexus 5)




I think it turned out alright, slight white mismatch but nothing too serious. Next up i think i will do the PCI brackets white and the thumb screws aluminium.

I really like this. The basic black with slight copper accents looks really good. I like the matching Alphacool components too. It would be slick if you could come up with some kind of copper cover for the HDD.

Thanks! Yeah I was thinking about popping that cover off and painting it copper or just a flat black/black primer but the silver adds a little splash of something else like the Ek logo. I'm really pleased with the build. After the fact I found a Alphacool fitting that will let me use the other hot swap bay. I'll add that in there next time I drain the loop for maintenance. My NZXT HUE is on RMA it quit working so I don't have any lights at the moment. I'll either put it back in or just get some Bitfenix Alchemy strips to add some lighting to the case to show it off some. Its DARK in there without it. All you see is the ROG logo shining...lol

Not to be an ass , but the caps thing get blown out of proportion, seems a lot of people use it as an excuse to complain its caps big f"ing deal , get over it and move on , I wish everyone would write in caps since im half blind makes it easier to read
post #11178 of 12512
Actually it's Internet etiquette, has been since around '84. A Google search will bring up tons of articles and studies showing the adverse affects of typing in all caps unless trying to convey a specific point. Bottom line is it's considered rude.

On a side not, David Draiman of Disturbed types in all caps on his Facebook page and makes no apologies, but he is the only one I know of that gets away with it.

I did the black and copper thing on an older build of mine.

If you ever decide to look at the Alphacool copper fittings. Stay away from them. They're absolute garbage. They looked so sexy until I finally tore my water cooling apart to find out they're just aluminum with a copper paint over it. When I looked at the fittings, the paint or coating wore off on the inside and there was corrosion and crap everywhere in my system, had so much gunk come out of my loop when I drained it.

Which is absolutely ridiculous considering they were like, almost 10 bucks per fitting.
