Everything Matte Black
Before, I had brashly purchased the NZXT H500 in matte black / red not thinking about whether I'd always like the color red in my system in the future or not. Additionally, I purchased a motherboard in which had permanent red lights installed, and permanently painted on red accents.
Therefore, I recently decided to turn the whole thing matte black, as Marques Brownlee would say: "Everything Matte Black". I used electrical tape cut precisely with a razor in order to cover up the motherboards accents, and carefully painted other components such as a number of GPU accents completely black. Moreover, I contacted NZXT and placed an order for a new black pump bracket to replace my old red one, and received it fast and free of charge under my warranty.
Furthermore, I also added in 2 sticks of the same RAM, maxing out my dual channel DIMM slots with 4 sticks of 8 GB DRAM. I now have 32 GB RAM and have noted the 5 FPS boost across select titles. It's funny though, because I usually don't have more than one tab open in chrome.
Lastly, I've recently been able to get my i7-8700K to clock in stably at 5.1GHz, and changed the Kraken's colors to an RGB spectrum. Full matte black also looks good though. I commonly switch between the two.
- Thank you for your time.
