    I just bought this case:
    http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pu...l_OAx9wxCcfvWk47KQ4RtZIjxqlH37q-U28c68_EZXlLA

    I have built a few computers this year but I want this build to be special.

    The last couple builds I did a little sleeving and cable management but mostly half assed. I am looking to really take my time and build a masterpiece and since my current computer is only a few months old and gets the job done i can relax and put quality time into this build.

    Since the case is white it will have special challenges, but I feel this will also set it apart from other builds I have seen.

    On one side of my desk I have my Media tower that is Black with blue LEDS.

    I am looking for suggestions on this build. Probably looking looking to stay with a blue and white them. even thinking of painting the PSU white. Painting the corsair HS50 water cooler white ect.

    Is there a possibility of replacing the HS50 water cooler pipes with steel braided lines?
    Or adding steel braided sleeves over the pipes, I think the steel piping inside the white case would be a nice standout point of when looking inside but also matching the white case.

    Something to check out.

    Thanks for the suggestion, it never occurred to me to try that. I know it is a closed system, so sleeving it would be the way to go I think.

    a blue psu with white uni-sleeved cables would look very nice ;)

    I am thinking of two themes now. need to make a choice. Blue Knight or going with a tron themed case. what do you think?

    I would be putting this image on my Blue Knight case if I went in that direction.

    Not sure on a Tron direction.

    I painted some parts on my case today. Will post pics soon.

    If you were to go for a Tron theme, I think black and the specific neon blue would be important.
    Stick with your Knight theme.

    Unusual cases...I was tempted to get the first version of this case in black just before coming across this thread.

    Even second hand it went for a decent price.

    Supposedly they only offer 150 of the white cases in the US. Not sure if that is true or not but it does say limited edition.

    SILVERSTONE RV02W-EW All White reinforced plastic...
