Hi there, If applicable I would go with a Dual Colour Combo Black-Blue or Black-red, Cheers Jason.

In that case, here are my recommendations:

First and foremost, take a sharpie to those ram slots - yellow and green = no win.
Second, I would play up the copper you have going and powdercoat the interior this color:
Dupont Copper Vein
Third, I would get sleeving in black or whatever secondary color you want for your rig (purple?) to give it some pop.

I think this would def. stand out.

A lot depends on the components you put inside, and think about dust. Some colors show the dust easily. Another factor is if you are going to put lights inside and how the color shows under lights, or, if you want it UV reactive. And make sure you do all your mods before you get it powder coated.
