Looking very interesting. Not too sure about painting heatsinks though (the mosfet ones in your pic), might be a questionable practice in terms of heat/ insulation. Painting the ram heatspreaders seems less likely to degrade cooling capacity to me for some reason. Regardless, it is gonna look very interesting... :beer: :thup:

I had that same concern when i was painting the mosfets, but when it comes to 24/7 use on my pc i do not have it overclocked and the mosfets stayed barely warm to the touch. Anyhow thanks for the interest guys here's a few pics of the progress.

My rad with white fan grill:

Very nice! Not a theme I would have considered, but it looks very clean. Looking forward to getting some final pics.

Im putting white leds on the top above the motherboard, the bottom, and right by the res to give it nice lit up look in the dark. I ordered two but it isnt enough light so i ordered two more. I like the idea of the bracket wish i would of thought of it but it's too late ill be leak testing it here in a few hours. Pics to come.

I like it all so far, except for the painted heat spreaders on the ram. Looks too... solid I guess is the best word. I needs something on it to contrast. Something like a black brand sticker or something. But other than that, it looks like it's coming phenomenal :)

I get what your saying but when they're in the case with the side panel on you can only see the top not the sides of the ram coolers. And as promised leak testing:

The computer isn't running just the fans and the pump. I hadn't checked the fans since dismantling them and painting them. Also DO NOT EVER use primochill liquid utopia it got so foamy that it overflowed the radiator. Other than that all is well so far. Gonna test for 24 hrs.
