I've posted before in the gaming rig megathread, some people should remember how hideous my non color matched case was. If not see: Imgur Album
I've changed cases and the new one has better cable management and a window, so the obviously mismatched colors is kinda digging at my OCD like a woodpecker on a telephone pole. I have ordered blue sata cables and switched all my fan trim rings to white. The scheme I'm going for is blue and white inside a black case. So the 2 most obvious items that need attention are my GPU (ASUS HD 7750) and my memory (Patriot Viper 3 Red).
For the memory I have a few options:
Expensive - replace with color matched ram (Patriot Viper 3 Blue or Black) - $50-60 per 8gb kit x2
Cheap - source blue or black heat spreaders for my ram - $4-5 per cooler
Free - strip off the current heat spreaders cause my ram sticks are black underneath
For the GPU I only have 2 options:
Buy new color matched GPU - $150-250
Strip the cooling solution off the GPU and try and respray the plastic to match the case, doable but leaves me without a graphics card/computer for a few days
So TL DR spend more money or DIY it?
