I'd red/black sleeving, multi-colour is cool looking.

Could always just paint the noctua fans, would save some money and you wouldn't have to worry about size issues.

Yeah I was thinking like 80% black 20% red sleeving, but where do you get sleeving kits that have red & black in them? I had a good question that just came up might be a problem in the case i'm choosing raven rv02 the motherboard will be turned around awkwardly and the heatsink will have to hang over the ram will the ram be in the clear? underneath the heatsink, or will the heat spreaders run into it? Also which ram slots are better on this board if anybody knows please tell thanks!
