    What about yellow? Or purple?

    All joking aside, I'm not sure where you were going with that question, ashiekh.

    I remember the FSP Epsilon and Chieftec CFT/C series using a not-quite-light blue coating, and probably a couple of off-brand (like Atrix) ones too, but those were not really special in any positive way, nor was the paint anything to write home about.

    Which PSUs did you have in mind?
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    There are coatings that can supposedly help absorb heat better, so some heatsinks use them. I don't think the light blue coating you saw on power supplies does anything other than appeal to certain individual's visual preferences.

    Was wondering if it was particularly abrasion or corrosion proof; grey with a blue tint is perhaps a better description.

    PSUs need more RAM.

    Thanks for the help guys; it was a genuine question.

    The blue in bluing is Fe304 and adheres to the iron base, while red rust (Fe203) does not.

    I was wondering if something other than paint was going on, like anodizing for aluminum; the coating on my Bestec is very thin. Perhaps I should have explained my thinking at the start; I just assumed that people here know so much more than myself.

    You are probably right, but I am sure no one one this forum knows what's in your head, when you are asking questions like that.
    You did make as all laugh, so that's definitely worth a

    You are right, and I'm normally not good at that; perhaps there is hope for me still.

    Now... concerning that RAM upgrade for my power supply...
