Also I thought the tubing was measured in meters so I bought "two" of them, but it was actually feet so I had to borrow a white tube from my old build. Anyway, here are some awful pictures of how it is right now. GPU being added soon.
Not even close to done, no case lighting yet, just trying to get things working and failing.

So I took some pictures to compare colors directly, and here's what we get:
Outside the case:
Looks nice, no complaints.
Inside the case:
So I'm swapping green LEDs for white LEDs. Notice the change in the RAM heatsink color, looks much better now. Sort of matches tubing, not sure.
PCI brackets look good.
Painted heatspreaders look PERFECT in comparison with the board, definitely using this as primary paint.
Still not sure if perfect match with tubing, will try Mayhem's Mint Green + dye changes to see if I can get it to match perfectly.
Tubing, RAM, and sleeving all together; sleeving being changed to all black, green does not match. Tubing looks deeper than RAM, will probably change.
The paint is great, by the way.
One more update!
Got two more shots while at PDX LAN.
Some EA guy walked up to me on Saturday and asked me to send him some info on my rig, so I did, and then suddenly my build log has thousands of views. Now Nvidia and OCN have also shared it and it's getting a lot of traffic, I'd just like to thank you all so much for taking the time and reading, I'm sorry you weren't here when it was all going down!
