Look on Amazon, if you just search for "vinyl camo" you can pick up printed vinyl in tons of colours/patterns, the only thing to look out for is the scale of the pattern can be deceiving on the images sometimes.

I'd avoid searching for "urban" since the only listing I found was a digital style camo.

Edit: Turns out I was searching the cars subsection, there are other listings for "urban", but mainly they're vinyl sets for consoles/laptops etc

Here's an example of the Corsair ML Pro white fans, They do look a lot more "ice white" in the flesh than these pics make them out to be though which would IMO go well with your build and especially the naming of the Alphacool components i.e Eiswolf *Snow/Ice Wolf* etc...

The issue with urban camo as you stated is scale, its more centered for vehicles I did find some that was perfect but US seller wanted £140 for 2000 x 600mm and to get it printed here in the UK its not far off £100. @dice those are the fans I have in mind or the new Fractal SPs in white which I've discovered glow really well under the Alphacool Eislicht. Its all a matter of how much light is too much..

DO you have a link for the one you found? If I know exactly what style/scale you're looking for I'll join you in the search. 2000x600mm seems an awful lot to wrap a few components though.

haha wraith, I had same issue as you with that clearance hole below the rad. I managed it though!

I just attached the long hose to the fitting first and fed it all the way through. Then once it was all in place, I cut it to length. But yes what a complete PITA with that motherboard.

I love the ice white. Shame the red (is it even red?) ruins it a little. I guess orange..

White colour accents will be going in this week too, on a prouder note I'm please to say I've had zero leaks the only headache I've had is last week had to tease the last remnants of air out the loop.
