My System Specs

Default Is That The Red or the White?

Trying to decide what colour to use in my next loop, right now I have a bottle of Ice Dragon and a bottle of F1 Red

I am going with a red/white/black theme to go with the ROG board.

All cables are sleeved in red or black

The case is white internal and black external

Thanks for the input

Current Look

+1 for red... in a black case, red would look awesome .. some white cathodes or leds would look nice though

+1 for red as well. Don't use red LED as the inside of your case will bleed red, using a contrasting colour like white to make the red stand out, especially if you use UV cathodes to make the coolant glow if it's UV reactive.

I think that red tubing with white UV lights would look rather slick as someone before me mentioned.

a little off topic.. but do you actually get white UV lights/leds? I thought you only get white cathodes really..
