Velocity RGB waterblock BLACK thumb nuts

I am a fan of EK & Own several of their waterblocks, black tubing and I just ordered all new EK-AFC fittings but One of the things that has been bugging me about EK cpu waterblocks for a few years now is the fact that they only offer the precisemount hardware, specifically the thumb nuts in silver/nickel. This is the sole reason why I bought a Bitspower summit rgb efx waterblock about six months ago instead of an EK. Bitspower even sells mounting plates in different colors! Well I have now purchased a new velocity rgb acetal waterblock and I still think it looks ridiculous with silver thumb nuts! Not to mention it is throwing off the aesthetics of my whole build. It might seem like a minor thing but
I wonder how many of you guys agree with me, I mean how difficult would it be for EK to manufacter black thumb nuts (at least for the acetal version anyway). This is even the way they advertise the acetal waterblock on their homepage (with black ones.) Well they did anyway until I sent them an email (second time in 2 years) telling them I was dissapointed to see that my new waterblock had silver ones when they advertise it with black ones. I politely again requested that they either sell a seperate precisemount sku in black or just include black ones for the acetal block. They didnt consider my request with the supremacy blocks & I seriously doubt they will now but my hope is that if enough people request it EK might at least consider it. I understand they arent gonna go through the trouble for just one customer but im sure many customers would appreciate it given the option. It cant be that much trouble they already anodize NVME heat sinks & compression fittings in at least 5 different colors.

So help a brother out and send EK a friendly email telling them that you should have the option to keep your pc looking aesthetically pleasing while performing great at the same time.
