They are blue corsairs - I cant for the life of me find the BF ones :/

They were only a demo run anyways, the heatshrinking wasnt great

Sadly it seems you can only get white ones in the UK. Maybe if Newegg or somewhere standard like that sells them in the USA I can get my mate to send them over for me. Now that would look incredible !

Edit. ERMAGERD !

WANT WANT WANT... I'm skint now until next Friday but fingers crossed they will still have them in then.
I actually got one of these and must have recieved a faulty one as it was whining as hell when not even on 7V lol.

The bionics I have now are stunning. Absolutely stunning. So I have totally decided to go with those throughout.

I would like to avoid LED fans too because the outside case lights can be changed to any colour that comes from RGB (so loads, basically) so I don't want to limit my options to one by using blue LEDs or white LEDs or what not.

So yeah, definitely going to treat myself to 5 of those bionics and 5 of those rubber gasket cover things

I also spotted this yesterday..

Seems they can still be got

Update.

So today I was in a bit of a predicament tbh. There's a 8 pin EPS connector at the bottom of the motherboard for the PCIE lanes and let's face it, EPS cables are the longest cables on the PSU. So this meant I would end up with around 40cm at least of spare wire that I could not hide.

So I ordered these.



Then realised they were the wrong type. They're female one end and male the other, FFS. I need double ended females so in the end I cracked and got out my gear and went to work. Look on the keyboard.



In the end it took me about 40 minutes to take some wires out of an old cable (for a PSU I had cables made for) and shorten them. However, the best part about doing it myself is that I now have them the exact length I need (24 cm).

So all I need to do now is whip out the long cables in the EPS run and replace with my blue cables. Sweet !

OK, so inside the PC will be three fans. The rads will all have two fans on but you will see the front end of three fans. So, I am going to order MNPCTECH grills for them so they look nice and clean. It's a toss up at the moment between these.



Or these.



I am leaning toward flames, but please feel free to comment and give me your opinion because I'm quite open

Cheers.
