Corsair Obsidian 250D Club - Page 25

post #241 of 3052
I exchanged the Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600 RAM I had bought for the Corsair Vengeance Pro 1866 @ Microcenter today. I was going with a blue theme but these have red on them. I need to somehow make the red work with my Batman theme.

Does anyone know what is the best way to paint the colored rings for the Corsair fans? Do you primer them and then spray paint them the color you want?

You'd probably want to rough them up just a tad with a bit of sandpaper to help promote adhesion. Then you can either use a plastic primer with the paint of your choice or skip the primer and use a paint designed for plastics like Krylon Fusion.

Thanks Rebel. I am thinking of making the rings the color yellow.

Looks like Walmart carries it.

Can I find Krylon Fusion at a Home Depot or Menards?

They should both carry it and you shouldn't have a problem finding yellow so that would be the way I'd go. The only benefit to using primer is it allows you the wider range of colors offered by other paints. But that shouldn't be an issue for you seeing as how you're sticking with a primary color. Also, if you can't find Krylon Fusion I believe Rustoleum and Valspar also make a paint specifically for plastics. Just read the labels carefully and you shouldn't have any problems.

I'll go there tomorrow and pick up a can that has the primer already mixed with it.

Should be a fun little project. Then I'll need to figure out what to do with sleeving my cables or ordering a set from Corsair.

I ordered a set from Corsair and they are entirely too bulky for a clean build in this case. There was a discussion a few posts back that had a link to website that made custom short cables. Or you can buy the stuff and try your hand at making your own.

I worry if I try myself, I'll probably really mess up the cables. LOL!

What do they charge at that website for shorter cables?

I have ordered 3 sets of cables through modDIY and they do a very clean nice job. They make all cable starting at 30cm and up to 80cm standard with the Corsair PSU I think are 60cm I opted for the 40cm in all white. I should be getting mine soon I hope.

You can order custom cables through modDIY they offer all brands of PSU's I use Corsair Platinum and Seasonic Gold series and they do a really great job on the cables too. The cable length start at 30cm to 80cm you can ask them to go longer as well. I think most cables are 60cm standard length I ordered some WHITE cables below in 40cm length.

Thanks Lucky, looks like their prices are fairly reasonable.
