i got the evga classfied, red dominator ram and blue logo from the hx1000 and haf932, i cannot decide on that i should make my loop tube color. Was thinking anything from red, black, white or yellow. Anyone know what would look the best. Thought about the black but its to dark for my tastes :ph34r:. Please give me some ideas.

ok cool, i was just looking at some ppls cases and they went all red, doesn't float my boat but maybe red and black will be good. Anyway anyone know how i can make the psu all black or cover the blue on it without ruining it? Maybe some kind of sleeve or something? Also what fluid, cause the feser red is too bright and apparently looks pink under uv?

They don't have sleeving for tubing but you could order sleeving and make it fit over tubing. The only problem would be the ends that would fray a little and be hard to make look neat. But the overall look would be awesome I am sure. Heck I am thinking of doing it myself now! :bleh:

I sleeved my tubes and like the effect, but there is a few things to consider first. The first thing is compression fitting are going to suck, the sleeving adds to much for the compression fittings to tighten up nice, it will also cause it to fray. Adding heatshrink just adds more to the dimension so you will need to heatshrink it above the fitting.

Heres the major thing I found, I use feser uvblue tubing and carbonfiber sleeving, the glow it nice and bright but subtle BUT switch out the carbonfiber sleeving with some plain carbon colored sleeving and the effect sucks IMO the sleeving just mutes the UV effect and you will find it lacking, I did and I just wanted subtle tones not bright glowing tubes.

IMO the key is the carbonfiber sleeving, I would/will do it again but not if I have to use standard sleeving.

Looks like Techflex sleeving on the tubes and murdermod sleeving on the wiring. I know where you got this! :thumb:
