Well...I hope its informative...and enjoyable. Sometimes those two things are mutually exclusive. Sometimes not.

So I'll try and do some picture heavy guides (or video)....but I don't want to do them on the exact same topics I did them on in the BBBB....ya know? I'll keep my eyes open for opportunities. And no...if Jenn thought I was slacking off on her build...she wouldn't let me get away with it. tongue.gif

*head turns at mention of polished copper tubing* I'm in. Subbing now.

Today I was playing with some samples of pink UV sleeving I had ordered from modDIY. Since this build is going to contain some pink accents inside, and I know the shade/color of pink I'll be using for the case, I'm kind of on the hunt for pink modding gear that is a good match for my case color. I ordered some 1 foot samples of most of the sizes of UV pink sleeving that they sell at modDIY.

Below is an example of what it looks like, next to my color swatch samples that I displayed earlier:





It might be tough to see (since OCN nerfs my beautiful high res photos) but the pink UV sleeving is almost a perfect match for the "Sassy" color of pink on the far left. It doesn't really match the darker richer Rosette Pink that we selected for the case.....but is a GREAT match for the Sassy color. Here are a few more pics of the sleeving with the Sassy color swatch.....











It doesn't go horrible with my Rosette pink. But doesn't go great either. .I'll take some pictures of it in the case once my case arrives. I think the biggest drawback though is that it really isn't very high quality sleeving. If you are used to using MDPC-X, this sleeving feels cheap. Even the smaller diameter sizes are flat instead of round, and look like the braid is much looser than it should be. I definitely wouldn't consider it for my main sleeving material.....but....maybe it would suffice for some small pink accents in certain places. Maybe the SATA cords. Not sure. I think I'll keep looking. To be honest, I think the sleeving is going to be primarily black. I don't want to overdue the pink accents inside the case. I want the pink coolant to be the star of the show inside the case. Don't want to distract from that with some cheap pink sleeving.

I will take some pictures of it under black light next time I pull my lighting out, so those that are considering it can see how it looks when it reacts with UV lighting. Plus...if anyone is planning on building a case and powder coating it "Sassy", then they really should be considering using this sleeve. rolleyes.gif

I have another sample to play with also. More soon...

I'm sure white and/or yellow would look good in the right circumstances. But my baby ordered up a pink and black computer. I'm here to satisfy.
