Modern cases and accessories that are beige or grey?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, I have been looking for something like this for a while. I'd like to have my computer have a normal looking mouse and a normal looking case. Not a sleeper build, where I hollow out an old Dell Dimension or something, but just like, something inoffensive and grey or beige. I just don't like black or white. They're too loud to me. I don't need it in a monitor, that ship has sailed, but do any of you guys know of an optical mouse or an ATX case I can brute force enough airflow into to air cool a 3950x and 2070 Super?


One of the greyest cases I found was a Cooler Master NR600, which is actually what I own, but it's very much just a black case, even though it looks grey. I have a nice beige keyboard that works great, but I can't seem to find a decent mouse or case, or indeed speakers.

That looks great! I like the look a lot, including the 5.25 inch drive bays. BUT, I am afraid looking at photos that it's basically still just black.
