    ^^ for example ^^

    I was hoping to set up a silver rig with red lcd, fans, cables, molex etc. I like the look of red on silver, but they all appear orange to me? I also bough a CCFL but thats really white + red = PINK! Is it just what they look like on screen, is it a camera thing, or do they all actually look that colour? :wallbash:

    cheers

    I know just what you mean...the vantec red stuff looks so orange I didn't know what it'd actually turn up as, so I just bought my orange braiding from Fleetwood in the end. Apparently they are actually red, although I think the shop was just trying to prevent me telling eveyone it's actually orange

    Does anyone know of any 'red' heatshrink which turned out to be orange?

    I can't find any orange heatshrink in the UK. I don't really wanna have to buy from America (frozencpu.com). Or alternitevly anyone have any orange heatshrink left over they wanna send me :D [At a price if necessary] :p

    Sorry for thread hijack :grr: ! But I can't use the for sale sections yet. :sigh:

    cheers :)

    I agree..I ordered some uv-reactive red sleeving from performance-pcs and when it arrived it was hot pink...even under a uv light. :waah:

    Yeah i got some "Hellfire Red" ccfls and they turned out to be pink. Which was good for greywolf and his pinky2 project. I myself stick to making led arrays because ccfl inverters scare me.

    Akasa case fans are actually red. But my supposedly blood red water dye has ended up almost flourescent pink!

    I don't know about you but I'd think that a PSU with pink sleeving on the wiring would look nice. Might not go with your theme, though.
    However, LEDs around 650nm will be red, so go for LEDs if you really want red.
    It's actually very difficult to make a CCFL that glows pure red. It has to do with the fluorescent phosphors used. Same problem with UV reactive materials.

    I have the CoolerMaster red uv fans and they are pretty red. They do turn a little radioactive pinkorange with uv light though. Its just a gamble.

    Red LEDs are really, actually red.

    My local electronics store sells cable sleeving that really is red. Zip ties, too.

    My silver ATop premod has been kitted out with red LEDs inside & on the front; I might sleeve the cables sometime.
