Default Case Colour

I would like some opinions on the colour to paint my case. The motherboard I will be using is the DFI LANParty UT Ultra-D and as you all know has the UV reactive Yellow and Orange slots. I will also be using the Yellow UV cables and UV Yellow PSU sleeve kit. You won't really see the orange since slots as I will be using 4 sticks of 512 Memory. So here are examples of the two colour choices I can't decide between.


2008 Dodge Hemi Orange Pearl


2006 Dodge Viper Slate Crystal Pear

I'm leaning towards that colour too, not to mention it was a specialist edition colour only available for 2006.

Oh definately! That way, if you entered it in enough "Ugly Case" contests, you'd eventually win enough components to build another computer.

How about pink with flowers all over it?

Yes I have seen one on the egg, looked for the link but it's gone.:(
As for the color IDK, I have seen orange and when it's done right looks stunning, but I am leaning towards the slate.


BTW looking @ buying that car this fall, the r/t avenger, in black though.
I really wanted a Challanger but that aint going to happen.:(
Damn wives

Ummm there is no Levy.
I wont be driving it 24/7 lol not the type of car you drive onto a jobsite.
I have 2- 4cyl cars 1 neon and a breeze both are very good on gas.
It has a 3.5l v6 mated to a 6 speed autostick so I dont see it being as bad on gas as say my 350.

I thought you were talking about a hemi-
and you're right- I just looked it up- it seems like they ditched their plans to charge levees on gas guzzlers, but they are going forward with their rebate incentives for buying efficient vehicles. Last I had heard they were going to do both, but Harper seems to be caving more and more on his environmental commitments every day.
