    If you were really good then you could electroplate the ramsinks, now that would be a good mod :D, and also you d have it finished properly like the volcano 7

    Gold plating would be awesome.

    where I work - I have to have parts anodized/plated all the time - for various reasons...although not gold plated

    electroless Nickel plating looks beautiful - shiny & durable, around .0004" thick - chrome plating is much thicker & peels off more easily. Nickel is a little expensive though.

    Anodizing is nice because you can get about any color you want red, green, blue, black - but it scratches off fairly easily. It's dirt cheap too - I get parts around the size of a CPU heat sink done for $2 - $4cdn depending on the quantities I get done.

    Either on these would be preferable to spray paint I think - although the difference may not be enough to worry about

    A nickel plating also stops copper 'sinks from corroding, aswell as looking pretty :D

    Nickel is tough and corrodes very slowly - sounds like a great idea RDR!
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.
