Looking for a colour match.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Once this Intel SB flaw/recall problem is resolved, I plan on putting this board inside a CM HAF 932:



I plan on (just as many others do) painting the inside of this case matte black, but I also want to paint some of the accent pieces the blue/teal colour seen on many parts of the asus motherboard.

For those with more painting experience, as I have none that should be anyone willing to reply, what should I look for in paint to match this colour? I'll be painting plastic and metal with it, so I'll need two paints eh?

I will not be going water cooling. I'm looking for LED fans (setup in pretty much the same way everyone does a 932) that will do their best to match the colour.

I'm a complete amateur at case lighting, so any suggestions for those fans or cathodes you think might look good with this black/blue setup are greatly appreciated.

I plan on putting rocker switches along the front side for any and all the lights, but I have no idea how to do this. There are plenty of guides, but what is not present in the guides, is where is a good place to buy extra connectors, switches, cable extenders, and sleeving kits?

Anyway, after reading other 932 mods here and watching videos all day, I think I'm ready to start working on the case. Seeing as I have a month to get it perfect and then order the parts.

Speaking of parts, for those interested, I haven't garnered any critique/advice on the hardware either:

- Asus P8P67 Pro pictured above.
- i5-2500k or i7-2600k, haven't decided.
- 2x Sapphire Radeon 6950 2gb (flashed to 6970's)
- Corsair 1000HX
- 8GB 1600 RAM, probably from Gskill
- Emcrest SSD of unknown size to be released by intel this month
- regular WD drive for storage
- haven't decided on the CPU cooler yet

I'm looking forward to getting my hands on this case!

I don't know if this will help in any way, but according to the photoshop color sampler tool, it's R: 47 G: 186 B: 255. I'm sure if you take a picture to any hardware/paint store, someone there will be able to help you find a match. Good luck!

Thanks! I had forgotten that hardware stores were colour experts. Hopefully I can find a paint that works.

I've actually decided to go with the Black Edition 932. I was planning to do my own window mod, but with tigerdirect selling it for the same price, I can't justify doing it myself.

I've ordered the case. Going to have a month of mod-time before anything but cooling, lighting, and psu arrives.

I might write up a build log along the way, but I have a tendency to never take pictures when I should.
