about the colours..
I thought it would be funny to built it that way
Instead of purple or blue ano stuff which is used and abused
I know it's almost a parrot, but I think I like it that way, I must say that I wasn't sure the final effect
And these are Litespeed colours (stripes)
My next build (FAT TI) will be purple/blue :lol:
