What Color Cable Extensions and Lighting?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Gonna use Bitfenix Alchemy extensions. I've got a Fractal Design Arc Midi R2, and my XSPC water cooling will have UV blue coursing through its veins.

That being said, what color extensions should I get? White? Or Blue?

And as for lighting, the R2 has a smoked acrylic window. I want the tubing to glow with the uv, so I was thinking Bitfenix Alchemy led strips. But again, blue or white?

Lastly, I'm looking at the Corsair AF120 High Static Pressure fans. Are they worth it?

For lighting I would choose white because I think its really clean looking, and blue lighting is overdone. Blue vs. white cable sleeving is really close to 50/50 for me but I would choose the white. I think that your thinking of the SP120s which are the static pressure fans the AF series are airflow. What are you planning to use the Corsair fans for? I run the SP120s on my rad and they are really awesome fans I like them a lot for both aesthetics and performance. If you want good performing fans with nice aesthetics I would recommend them, but if you just want performance there are better fans. A picture of your build would help with choosing color options, otherwise youll just get generic opinions not specific to your build.

I'm using them on my rad, and yeah I was thinking SP120s. I'll have to wait until I get it all set up. Working on rad placement at the moment. If I do top, it will have to be exhaust. However, if I move the hdd bays to the second position, I can put it up front, and use it as intake.
