Rit makes a powder and liquid dye which may work by heating the dye diluted with water and soaking them for a time. They have Apple and Kelly green.

I read a guy modded some key caps on a keyboard with this method, different plastic though.

That's a great idea if it works. You have any links on this method?

Thanks.

Here's how I used to do it...

Get a disposable "aluminum foil" roasting pan. It's safe to use on the stove top (with better half's permission) as long as it contains liquid. Since the rings are small, you'll be able to use a smaller pan if you can find one.

Put in the water and dye. It doesn't really matter if it looks really dark, the shade of your project will depend on how long it is in the solution. Heat the solution to the temperature recommended on the dye package.

Maintain heat on the dye solution and add the items to be dyed. Make sure that they're completely submerged. You may remove the items periodically to check the depth of color.

It may take as long as an hour or so before you see any results, don't give up too quickly. On the other hand, if there isn't any change after an hour, then that type of plastic probably won't take dye.

If you have a white porcelain sink, DO NOT pour the used dye in the sink (unless you really want a green sink).

Decide if you want a Intel or AMD based system. Research your memory choice to be sure it's compatible with the cpu (memory controller) you are using. Buy more PSU watts than you think you need. Do you want to air cool or h2o cool? All-in-one or custom loop?

What ever you decide on be sure and google for reviews. Buy the best your budget allows.

Personally I'm a ASUS equipment fan boy, mother boards, optical drives and gpu's have all been great performers. I have had 1 bad board and CS was good but the repair side dropped the ball a few times.
