I'm having a bit of a conundrum selecting colors for my a new mod project I'm about to start on with the Corsair 540 Air.

Here are the specs:

X58 LE w/ I7 920
1000w silverstone strider psu
2x GTX 780's
2x XSPC GTX Titan Water Blocks
1x XSPC Raystorm CPU Water Block
1x EX360 Rad
1x Alphacool XT 45 280mm Rad
1x XPSC Dual Bay Resevoir
1x Swiftech 655 Pump
8 feet of Rigid Tubing w/ 12 ish black Primochill Ghost Fittings

So here's my issue. I ordered this stuff with a bunch of "Ultra Brite" Orange LED's to go in the CPU, GPU and Res. I also ordered a bunch of UV Reactive Orange rigid tubing from Primochill.

I got the stuff today......and the blue leds that came with the blocks are sooooooo much brighter than the orange. The orange is still cool....it's softer....yet.....the blue just calls me.

My question to you, the OC Intelligencia is thusly:

Is blue played out? If I built a badass rig, in blue UV reactant tubing, with blue LEDs.....would I be a sell out to normalcy? Should I stay orange, to stay classy, or go blue because it's brighter?

HALP!

Okay...Here are some pics so you know what I'm dealing with here. I think the orange wins personally.

Since you don't see to many orange set ups I'd say go for the orange and be different, I think it would look sick.

You already have the orange and it looks good. That's what you wanted to do originally. Stick to the plan and parts you already have. thumb.gif
