Color scheme

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,
I'm looking to get some sleeved cable extensions to smooth out my aesthetics a bit more, but I'm not sure what color to get. I've been messing around in paint, but I really can't tell what different colors would look like. I'd just get some for the 24-pin connector and a few 6+8 pins for my graphics card(s), since those are really the only cables that are showing. I was thinking either some sort of khaki to match the noctuas, all white, all black, or all grey. This is the build now:

and don't mind the neon zip-tie, I'll get rid of that soon when I relocate the pump.

Thanks for your help!

Red, blue or green always does well in a black case.

If you were sleeving it yourself I'd suggest MDPC-X Vanilla Sands N.17, Copper Brown either on their own or possibly with one of the shades of dark grey or black.

If you're going with retail rather than custom extenders you're going to be pretty limited on colour choice.

Not really. Just make your own cable extentions.

I would have to agree, a tan, brown, and a gray would be a great touch.

gray as the base
tan as the secondary
and brown as the highlights.

Paracord would be a good material to look for as it comes in many colors:
