More about black gold build finding case please
  1. Ok, first off, that gold fluid is not designed for longterm use in a loop, its predominantly used for showcases at tradeshows,
    But I like the colour scheme and to get the full effect here you are going to have to up your game, a lot
    Hard drive, paint the steel cover black
    Optical drives paint the internal surfaces black
    Northbridge/Southbridge and I/o sockets gold
    Remove the labelling from the Psu
    Whichever blocks you use for the loop should be gold/black
    are you W/c'ing just the Cpu? as those cards wouls fit the colour scheme I'm assuming you are keeping them as is, or modding them to have W/c whilst keeping the shrouds?
    And the case you choose, black as night, big, no leds, maybe white cathodes to bring up the shine on gold parts/paint
    but I see a lot of paintwork on this one, highlighting Psu/drives/blocks etc,
    and it absolutely cannot look half-arsed in any way,
    are you up to it?

    You will also be modifying the case somewhat, just to forewarn you :P
    So check out the large fulltowers with black internals, removable hard drive cages are nice, but not essential as you can remove 'non-removable' ones anyway

    I would suggest a clean looking case such as this,

    Ok do you think blue liquid cooling would look nice in this build?
    Which paint would i use to paint the HDD,Drives and north and south bridge?
    Removing the label must be easy
    Ok gold and black plates?
    Im just going to OC the CPU
    Ok so i have just seen this case and i think this may do the job > http://www.scan.co.uk/products/nzxt-phantom-410-black-performance-mid-tower-case-with-2x120mm-and-1x140mm-fans-usb-30-w-o-psu
    and i will add some white cathodes to the inside of my case
    which parts to highlight on the PSU etc?
    Yes i am up to it.

    Edit i have just seen your edit i will look for a different case.
  3. Buy gold tubing and normal liquid.

  8. don't think you can find it anywhere, but this one was kinda .. gold

    http://www.tomshardware.de/PC-K7C-Lancool,news-241783.html

    might just have to get a black case and do some pin-striping on it.
  9. Gods no, there is a reason you can't find it, its vile!
    :-)
    Black case with gold accents as originally advised hehe ,if only for tastes sake
