Default Fun little mod ideas

I was sitting around today, and I was thinking, what little tweaks and mods could I do to my computer case to make it look cooler. One of my ideas was to spray paint the inside of my case with a black matte finish. Would it be a bad idea to spray paint the inside of a case? (with all of the parts out of course)

alot of people paint the inside w/ flat black. I think it always looks good. I prefer flat over a glossy finish

i went for white on the inside of mine and i think it looks a lot better then black. but thats my opinion. also i did a lot of extra mod work, but painting in general can make it look a lot better.

i cut some fan holes, cut out some stuff on the side (lettering and a design), a pretty nice paint job and lots of lighting.

A nice and simple mod is to cut a blowhole so you can flip your PSU. That way it uses exterior air (keeping it cooler and more stable).
