How can I improve the looks of my PC?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Here's a pic. Not exactly happy with how it looks.  Not sure if it looks good or not. I'm all about those AEETHETICS.

 

More RGB?

 

Pipes gotta be this way otherwise they kink.

Or should I use a huge spring to make them not kink or something?

 

Case is Lian Li 011 Air

Get some Corsair LL120 RGB fans to replace the all visible fans, they have decent static pressure(1.6mm H2O) too if you want to replace your AIO fans with them.(Bright pink/blue on those fans are really sexy especially on a black case)

 

Maybe cables that match the interior colour? I’m not sure if you can change the founders edition card lighting though.

those cables.... green light and red cables and orange fans at bottom?

try to stick with one colour theme, no rgb.

those aio tubes are huge! 

Fans are RGB synced with the motherboard. I have 1 more to install and planning to buy 2 more. It's Lian Li ones, they look good imo. I can change the light on the GPUs to red to match cables.

I can change the lights of everything to RED. It's because I have RAMPAGE V EXTREME which was red, so I wanted to match it, but obviously upgraded since then.

There's EKWB Vardar fans in there! They're one of the best fans. 3x Noctua 3000 Industrial fans also! Can't get better than this. The RGB fans are Lian Li's RGB fans, good quality with actual aluminium bracket around them. They match the cards nicely.

Can't replace the AIO fans, and tbf I wouldn't want to. It's the Phoenix MLC 360 + 240mm rads and they use hex screws and they act as washers as well.

 

But yea I know it doesnt look greatest, so I just explained that I what I can change, just thinking of what I can do to make it look better. The pipes unfortunately have to stay that way. I mean they keep 9900k at 5.3Ghz stable no problem so I don't wana touch them haha.

You could stick with a red/black theme, by setting all the rgb lights to red. I wouldn’t suggest led strips though, those don’t tend to look nice on black cases.

I'll set it all to red once I can. Is it a good idea to get two more of the RGB fans and setting them to RED?

 

What about the tubes? They look bit weird. I could rearrange them slightly to make it look better (they're quick release valves) but that's about it. These radiators are incredibly thicc and can't fit any more of these. I'll eventually watercool the GPUs as long as EK comes out with their Phoenix GPU block.

Ye the FE cards actually have built in RGB lights, but Nvidia abandoned the idea for some reason. They can be set to any colour which is sick.

If it's RGB you could just change the colour, right? And I'd have to disagree on them matching.
