first time mod raven 03 [help needed]
 
So i got my raven to day and theres a few thing's that already bug me, The 180MM fans theres a gap between the two and it looks really stupid, I was going to put 3x 120MM fans to replace them but that look's even stupider as they're just sitting in the center, So I think I'm gonna stick with the less annoying 180MM fans. Also wtf is with how the power supply goes really?

for the sleeving I think i want to do something very similar to this

and as for the tubing I think I want to go with something like this

What I am in need of is non LED black / orange fans does anyone know if these exist, If i can't find them I think i might change the colour scheme to black / green

I would also like to some how get the hard drive cage from a raven02 in the 03

Can't speak for the fans, but for sleeving you'll need a paperclip for removing pins, a heatgun or butane torch for the shrink wrap, heatgun is the better option, and scissors for the heatshrink and sleeving.

Only orange/black fans you'll probably be able to find are made by Cougar.

Deciding on what res to get leaning more towards the dual bay

Might change the scheme to black / green, I don't really know what I want yet

I'd pass on the frozenQ stuff, a few other forum members and myself have faulty products and no support/communication from them. If you get a bad product you're out $100.

Thanks for the links for the fans, Didn't know cougar had fans too bad they're ugly i was looking for more like the typhoons but with orange instead of white, I have no idea what colour scheme i want at all.

Some painter's tape and a can of Krylon Fusion plastic spray paint and you can turn any fan any color.

Yeah I was thinking of painting some typhoons, how ever I'm not sure if i want to do the water cooling right away because I plan to replace the parts in my sig with ivy bridge once it comes out.
