I sprayed the inside of mine with "Appliance White". It's simple, but effective and it looks blue when the CCFLs and LEDs are on.

Yeah, you spend three hours cutting a nice, neat hole in your side panel, glue a perfectly cut piece of perspex into it, connect up your CCFLs, put it all together, power up and, Dammit, why the **** didn't I paint the inside of the case?!! That's why I did my second one white inside.

oh well done you fool, now you've gone and got me wanting to paint the interior now! fool! lol

i was thinking, as stoopid as it may sound, could painting the interior black raise the temps slightly as black absorbs heat? im assuming not as there a black pooter cases, but i just want another opinion.

dude, make sure that you give us some pics when its got all the bits and bobs in!


also, can you explain what you did to acheive such good results, eg sanding, how many paint layers, primer, clear coat?


also also, lol, is it out of the question to think of painting by brush instead to spray?

the best primer for a aluminum or metal is self etching primer, goes on a bit thick but ok if you know what ur doing, SEM brand is 11.95 a can but where i live everything is expensive...

i want a new case for the fact that i have a midtower(and i want an awsome paint job), but i have a lexa and cant part with it...

i dont think that painting the case would raise temps, unless you left it in direct sunlight
