But as you suggested, it needs something to break up the red / black, red black..... I'm using a white accent on some of the cables, thinking of adding red / white pinstipe to the black rads and considering the new white EK reservoir for this purpose.
Wonder what gold instead of white would do as an accent to red/black? thinking.gif

Looks great on the TUF series like Sabertooth .... I like the white tho as the MoBo accents are white ..... PCIE slot and RAM slot clippies .... phanteks fan blades

So yes, I think a bit of white tubing would be great ..... I'll send you a PM of one done in white .... OTOH....if ya have a lot of tubing will too much white might be .... well ..... too much smile.gif ?.

Yeah, I'm leaning toward white tubing, too, except I already bought Masterkleer "UV Dark Red", which, it turnst out, is actually more of a pumpkin orange in uv light. I don't think I like the look of the orange glow of the tubing against the red LEDs I'm using in my XSPC blocks (cpu & gpu). In uv light, I figure white tubing should either glow extremely bright white or turn purple-ish, either of which I think might work really well in my build.

I just don't want to finally get this project done only to realize I hate the color of my tubing. lol After putting so much energy into this, that would suck.

If I did go with white, that would make the entire build black with red accents, and the watercooling bright white so it stands out (which would also match my Noiseblocker fans on the bottom rad, which you'll see clearly through the panel window). I think that might work well.

Doyll, I think gold accents would be beautiful -- gold compression fittings & adapters would look really classy. I think yellow tubing might look out of place, though.

Well, maybe just install the lights and insert a piece of tubing laying on top of the rad to see what it looks like before connecting anything.

Got an e-mail from NB that the have 140mm coming out soon .... wonder how they will compare with the Phanteks considering the Phanteks took top spot here

I picked up the Noiseblockers on the recomendation of one of the wc guys on the ROG forum and martinsliquidlab.org, but mostly because I wanted something a little more eye-catching on the bottom rad than plain old black fans, but not as bright as LED fans. They're pricey, but they're reported to work really well with thick rads (although I don't know how they stack up against Phanteks).

Martinsliquidlab gave them top billing alongside Scythe: http://martinsliquidlab.org/2013/05/07/fan-testing-round-12/

The NBs are excellent fans ..... I wanted to evaluate their 140s and much to my dismay they didn't have them so I e-mailed them. They said they 'in the works" but could not disclose a release date or any technical data .... I was hoping for an 1800 rpm E-loop, either PWM or one that could be controlled by the phanteks PCB.. If they turn out to be 1250 rpm, I'd have a hard time dumping the $18 phanteks for new NBs but I wuda been real interested in 1800 rpm jobs, provided i could run them at 900-1200.

That is actually my plan for my Enthoo build, although I might prefer amber to gold. I am thinking of amber lighting and tubing (or coolant), dark red fittings. Sleeving will be black, dark red ad sand from MDPC. |
The thing I'll have to experiment once I get the parts is the fans. I've ordered some SP-120 high performance to do some tests. I was thinking of dying the propeller red and the ring golden/amber, but I am afraid that matching all the colours will be a real pita.

I'm experimenting with 5050 RGB SMD LED strip because they claim over 1,000,000 can be made. Can see 3 lights in each chip (red, blue & green) when light level is low. 5050 gets it's name from LED chip size; 5.0x5.0mm. 3528 RGB is 3 individual chips 3.5x2.8mm and cannot make blended colors.. only red, green & blue. I found this video tutorial useful

Matching color with penetrating dye is hard to do.. Spray dye like auto detailers use on leather/vinyl gives same color as on bottle/can. I think it's better than paint.

I have also bought the 5m version of the 5050 RGB SMD LED stripe. with a ir remote.
i have been experimenting with it and it can run on a standard molex. and as soon I got home the new sata conectors i will try run them on sata as well.
other idea is using the led stripe line on the phantek PCB but i dont thing it got enough power for it sins the 5050 got 2 amp in each colour at peak.
