colored heat sinks

this might sound... might lol. this will sound really stupid. i want colored heatsinks to go with my computers theme (black and orange with blue highlights here and there) im looking into an ASRock extreme 4 990fx, but do not like the light blue and dark blue and gold, so to even it up a bit, i want to replace the north bridge and south bridges (if there is a heat sink on it) heatsinks. im thinking i want orange to contrast with the blue and dark brown/black. its alright if this doesnt exist for retail, but if anyone knows of anything, id appreciate it

Looks good but have you looked at the limitations of it regarding the built in graphics. Just something to keep in mind when looking for replacement heat-sinks and fans for proprietary branded mobo's. You might want to look at a replacement mobo that has heat-sinks all ready installed on those chip-sets and on north-bridge and south-bridge chips. They are relatively inexpensive these days.

LOL, so right as i said that they have a version more like the EXTR3 990 with better colors but is in the the EXTR4 series, if you look at the EXTR4 990 to the link im posting you can see what im talking about.

Newegg.com - ASRock 890FX Deluxe4 AM3+ AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

heres more the coloring i want... but the board looks cheap as hell. i liked the 990fx EXT4 but if i could get it in these colors...
Newegg.com - ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

although that first link looks better, and i will probably never use this feature, i like have spare room for more memory, ie 32gb on a dual channel like the 990fx. even though im only going to be using 16 i dont like feeling like i couldnt have more if i wanted

Letters are Multi-Colored
Quite suddenly the letters are now showing up multi-colored and/or are partially visible. I am slightly color blind so what looks to be a partial letter might actually be a liter color. In fact all letters are some color other than black. How do I get the "normal" view back?
