    Since when are there mosquitos in the UK? That's one of the things I really appreciated after coming back from a week in the Mexican jungle, batting away mosquitos which cling onto you and bite through your clothes...

    The red color you chose is close. I think it needs to be more on the burgundy side though. If you have a iPhone (the app might be on android also), download Adobe Kuler. It allows you to find out what certain colors are (very descriptive). That will help you match colors correctly.

    Haha I know hardly any, well some in certain areas where I live because of damp/moisture/heat. In Slovakia when I go on holiday it's a night mare, there is gajilion mosquitos everywhere :O


    Damn that sounds like a must get app, il search it up. Hopefully Google Store has it ^^

    Edit: Not on Android anymore but I have found a replacement named "SwatchMatic"

    Update. Top ribbed enclosure spray painted (same spray paint as the previous ones) still need to add another layer but need to buy more cans ^^ £5 a pop

    St. Patrick chased them out of Ireland at the same time as the snakes. This is why there have been so many political and military conflicts between the two countries, those damned mosquitoes.

    I have 2 RoG boards. I think that red will be fine.

    That red looks sweet, it's going to make your system stand out and match the rog board.

    Thanks, yeah I had my doubts about the colour originally but liking it a lot more now :)

    In terms of Fans for a 360 Rad (I would of gone with 480 by doing modifications to the top but il leave that out for now) what would you suggest? I am pretty much looking for low noise fans as Il have 360 top and 240 bottom, bottom being most likely push/pull as top won't be possible I heard.

    How are they compared to Noctua Fans in terms of airflow/noise? I am leaning towards Noctua and spray painting the blades red while the frame black.

    They are pretty silent, I personally love my sickleflow fans, the smoke black blades with the red glow give a nice scythe style look to it. They are pretty good at moving air and very low noise compared to fans I've had in the past.

    Ah yeah I do have the blue sickflow fan and it moves quite a lot of air - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/206654
    Might give them a buy, they are quite nicely priced as well. Although my intention is to paint the blades red to go with the whole scheme.

    EDIT:

    This looks good, although not exactly a pressure fan :/



    Edit 2:

    Just look around the web and found a possible price for the Formula VI. It can't really be £175, that's way too cheap, even the Formul VI is around £220.
