    BLACK OR WHITE





    I'm so pissed off... I don't which one to choose... need some else's opinion.

    Will drives with white bezels look stupid on the silver front of the black case?

    Thanks

    go with the BLACK, its much cooler looking. If your worried about the color of the bezels lookin goofy, stick with one manufactor for each ROM. So get all sont or all acer or something like that. I dont know why all of the companies have started using a universal color scheme yet.

    Id go with the darker color also---it just looks different then what everyone is used to seeing---dust or fingerprints may be more noticeable tho...

    I have a Clearcase and a Lian-Li aluminum and with both was worried about the beige drives, painting seemed extreme and purchasing all black components was out of the question unless you can get em all from the same manufacturer because black isnt consistant between them---the beige drives havnt been an issue actually...

    definatley black, if your worried about your CD-Rom drives looking silly, you can carefully pull their front covers off and paint them.

    Yeah, I'd also say to go with black... Why starts to change colors after a while, starts turning grey or yellowish...

    oh...black and silver - that is gonna look sweet. Be sure to post some pics when you are done. I've used model paint before and it seemed to work well on faceplates. Just be patient and don't rush when painting.
